The Boston Celtics went up 2-0 in the series, after coming away with a tough win in overtime. However, now Washington has a chance to redeem themselves as they get home court advantage for the next two games.
The Washington Wizards let a winnable game slip away from them. After dominating much of the second half, the Wizards started to let up, an allow the Celtics to get back into the game.
Boston seemed to hit ever key bucket, and in turn, the Wizards started to fall apart.
Washington went into overtime looking totally outmatched, as they gave up 15 points to the Celtics, while only getting 5 points themselves. That’s terrible, and it showed the team gave up when things went sour for them.
But next outing at least they get to play in front of their home crowd. That should help some, because role players tend to play better on their own courts.
However, it still doesn’t make up for them pouting and putting their heads down when things got tough.
Next game they can’t do that. In order for that to change they need to play tougher. The Celtics are clearly outhustling them in every way, and Washington seems to have no answer to stopping that.
But simply playing with more energy than the opposing team seems to be the only route they can go.
If the Wizards can do that, they’ll have a good chance at making this a 2-1 series. Now it just comes down to doing what they need to.
The Boston Celtics make this a 2-0 series, and none of that would have been possible had in not been for star guard Isaiah Thomas.
He torched the Wizards defense, scoring 53 points on them. Washington just seemed to have no answer to stopping him, so Boston needs to continue to expose that chink in their defense.
Washington seemed to throw anyone they could at him, but Isaiah continued to pour in bucket after bucket.
That means next outing they need to continue to do this if they hope to go up 3-0 in the series. Thomas and Al Horford have been a thorn on the Wizards side all season.
Now if just need to continue doing it the rest of the playoffs.
Because if they can, Boston can take these next two games, and go back home with a clean sweep.

Free Game 3 Washington Wizards vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Although Boston seems to look almost unstoppable at this moment. It seems like Washington should take this game. They almost won last outing, had it not been for a slip up in the final minutes of the game.
But now they get a chance at redemption in front of their own home crown.
