The Washington Wizards are looking to stay in the top five seeds in the East. The Wizards are coming off a tough road loss, to the Heat, 129-102. If Washington is going to keep winning games, they must play better on the road.
The Wizards are 19-15 on the road this season. Not bad, but not great either.
The Wizards Bradley Beal has been playing the best NBA basketball of his career this season. The All Star guard is averaging 23.2 points per game this year, and is doing the majority of winning and scoring without John Wall. Wall is out for an extended period with a knee injury.
Aside from the elevated play from Beal, the Wizards have a solid supporting cast. Otto Porter Jr., seems to be coming into his own. He is averaging 15 points per game this season. Kelly ObureJr., is also playing well. He is averaging 11.9 points per game and playing well on both ends of the court.
On the defensive side of the court, the Wizards are allowing 105.8 points per game this season. That ranks the Wizards 15th in points allowed this season. If Washington can continue to get better on the defensive end, the Wizards will be much more than a first round wonder this year.
Look for the Wizards to be a little tired, they will be coming off an extended road trip, and will have faced two potential playoff teams in back to back games.
The Boston Celtics are a bit banged up right now. The Celtics could be without Al Hortford, but will definitely be without Kyrie Irving, Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Daniel Theis and Gordon Heyward. If that is the case, expect all pressure to be on rookie Jayson Tatum’s shoulders.
The Boston Celtics are currently already guaranteed a spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs this season, so now might be a good time to start resting players from game to game. The Celtics are going to be extra cautious with their star Kyrie Irving. He is the key piece to Boston’s title run.
Defensively, the Celtics are one of the best teams in the league. Boston is allowing 100.2 points per game this year. Ranking the Celtics second in points allowed per game this year. As the season gets deeper, the Celtics defense gets better. The Boston defense will be key in this matchup.
