The Washington Wizards were able to pull out their first win in the second round, putting the series at 2-1 for Boston. But now Washington needs to win again, in order to tie this series up at 2 games apiece.
The Washington Wizards were able to totally dominate the Boston Celtics in their last outing, and their play in the first quarter had a large part to do with that.
Washington outscored them 39-17 in only the first quarter. And after that they didn’t look back the rest of the game.
Boston tried their best to make a game of it, but by then it was a little too late. They just gave up way too many points in the first quarter, and Washington didn’t let up the rest of the night.
But now they need to continue doing this next game again, if they hope to tie up the series.
Boston has shown themselves to be susceptible to giving up a ton of points in the first quarter. I mean they’ve done it through the first three games already.
However, Washington still needs to continue doing this if they hope to win. The Celtics just aren’t a great first quarter team, so if Washington can pounce on them early, they can replay what happened last outing again.
Now it just comes down to doing what they need to do.
If they can do that, they’ll tie the series up. But if they can’t, they’re going to go to Boston down 3-1.
The Boston Celtics have continued to struggle in the first quarter through almost every game.
In the first outing, they gave up 38 points to Washington, and only scored 24 points themselves.
And then the next game they got outplayed 42-29. That’s an insane amount of points they continue to give up in just the first quarter.
So now if they hope to change that trend, they need to come out of the gates with more energy.
It seems like the team comes out the gates sleepwalking at times. They just don’t seem to have any energy in the first quarters. Yet, somehow they’ll start to play harder in the second, third and fourth quarter.
That just doesn’t make sense. It’s almost as if the teams doing it on purpose. But they obviously aren’t.
However, if they hope to change that, they’re going to need to come out with more passion and energy then the Wizards
Boston needs to be ready to dive for every loose ball, and hustle for every rebound. If they can do that, they’ll make this a 3-1 series easily.
