Monday NBA features a showdown of two teams looking to cement their place as the Eastern Conference’s second-best team. The defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers are the consensus No. 1 seed out East, but the Toronto Raptors, Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards are all in a dog fight for the next-best spot.
The latter two are facing off in this one at 7:30 p.m. ET.
*All statistics, standings, rankings, records and trends are current as of this writing at 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 19.
The Wizards enter this contest coming off a 98-93 loss to the Charlotte Hornets, but that’s just the start of their recent struggles.
This squad has lost three of its last four, with its only win coming against the lowly Dwyane Wade-less Chicago Bulls and losses to two non-playoff teams in the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves.
Washington comes into this game scoring 108.9 points per night. That number is good enough for fifth in the NBA, but the team is scoring just 104 points per contest over its last foul and just 101.3 in its last three losses.
Defensively, the Wizards are giving up 106.8 points per night. That number is only good enough for 22nd in the league.
But like the offense, that number is less impressive over the recent slump.
In its last four games, Washington is giving up 109 points per game. In losses during that stretch, it’s slightly higher at 109.7.
Unlike the Wiz, Boston comes into this game having lost its last outing but having won three of its last four and four of its last six.
On the season, the Celtics are scoring 107.5 points per night. That number is good enough for eighth in the league.
Defensively, Boston is allowing its opponents to score 105 points per night. That puts the team right in the middle of the pack of the NBA at 15th.
If we know anything about this game, it’s that points will be scored. Both Boston and Washington have proven to be excellent offensive teams, and even more importantly, both have proven to be subpar defensively.
Defending John Wall is going to be crucial for the Celtics.
Stopping everyone else will be part of the blueprint to success, but letting the Washington floor general score and create will be problematic for Boston.
