The Washington Wizards were able to tie up the series at 2 games apiece, after they were able to pull out the dominating win over the Boston Celtics in their last outing. However, now Washington needs to do it again on the Celtics home floor, if they hope to go back to D.C. up 3-2.
The Washington Wizards were neck and neck with the Celtics most of the game, however, a third quarter collapse from Boston allowed Washington to take a huge lead.
Washington outscored them 42-20 in the quarter, and after that, Boston wasn’t able to play their way back into the game.
They tried their best, but to no avail. The Wizards just refused to let up on the lead, and Boston was forced to take the “L”.
But now they need to be ready to do it again, if they hope to go to Washington up 3-2.
The Celtics are going to come out and play more tougher in front of their home fans. Now it just comes down to if Washington can stop them from doing so.
If they can, they should take this game. But if they can’t, the Celtics will take the slight edge in the series.
But it’s all going to come down to if Washington can get stops.
In their last two games they’ve held Boston in check. But now they need to be ready to do in at the TD Garden.
The Boston Celtics just haven’t looked right in their previous two outing.
In the first game they put up just 89 points, and then the next outing they scored only 102. That’s unacceptable if they’re hoping to win this series, because Washington nearly outscored them by triple the amount.
So if Boston hopes to turn things around, it’s going to start with their offense.
Usually they do a great job finding teammates for open looks, and defending at a high level. However, that hasn’t been the case these last two games.
After going to Washington up 2-0, they’ve allowed the Wizards to get themselves right back into the series.
But if they hope to change that, they need to come out with more energy on both ends of the floor. If they can do that, they’ll go to Washington up 3-2.
