Wednesday, October 27th finds the Washington Wizards facing the Boston Celtics in their second games of this 2021-22 season.
The Celtics hold the all-time record between the clubs with 194 wins in 311 meetings. Last season, the teams played three times with Boston taking two of the three contests.
An interesting schedule note is this is a home and home series but the Wizards will also play host to the Hawks (Thursday) while the Celtics won’t play any games in between the game in Washington on Saturday.
This Wizards team is one of the biggest early surprises of the season. Not too many analysts or pundits anticipated this start and yet they’ve looked pretty solid.
Of course, they’ve got Bradley Beal to bolster the offense and several 3-point snipers but the big surprise is they’ve been decent defensively.
Specifically, Daniel Gafford has dramatically impacted the defense and is functioning as their equivalent to Rudy Gobert as the Wizards defensive captain.
The combination of Gafford and Montrezl Harrell is working wonderfully and in truth, Harrell looks far more comfortable in this system than he ever did for the Lakers.
Thomas Bryant (knee), Cassius Winston (hamstring), and Anthony Gill (calf) are all questionable for Wednesday while Rui Hachimura is out for personal reasons.
After stumbling to start the season the Celtics got back on track with consecutive victories. Their first win came against the Rockets and they followed it up with an overtime victory against the Hornets.
The latter was the most impressive game the Celts have played this season. Jayson Tatum dropped a beauty with 41 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, a block, and hit half of his 3-point shots (6 of 12).
Five Celtics registered double-figure scores including Jaylen Brown who offered 30 points, nine rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block, and hit three 3-pointers.
Al Horford (groin) and Romeo Langford (calf) are both questionable for this match.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
This should be a competitive match considering these two clubs have a history of not liking each other. Many of the players who were around when the issues first arose are no longer with the clubs (Terry Rozier and John Wall) but Beal will be looking to send a message.
As per usual when teams play two games in close succession they often split those matches but with the East vastly improved this season teams will be looking to gain any advantage possible even this early in the season.
Taking both matches now could end up being the difference at season end with regards to the play-in tournament. If Horford can’t go that’ll make a difference for the Wizards.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Wizards +4.5
Boston isn’t happy with their start but looked vastly improved in the last two matches but again, this Wizards team is tougher than early projections – so I’m taking Celts to cover but Wiz to keep it close.
