Crowder accepts lesser role with Celtics

Washington Wizards

The Celtics had their three-game win streak snapped as they lost in Philadelphia yesterday afternoon. John Wall led the team with 19 points, Bradley Beal had 18 points, and Otto Porter finished with 16. Horford leads in rebounds with 6.7 and in blocks with 1.4 per game. However, the Wizards have performed well against the C's, as they've won two of the three meetings between the two teams this season. Ultimately, this game wasn't as close as the final score indicated. Boston is 42-22 with Thomas in the lineup and averages 108 points on 45.5 percent shooting. "I just wish we would have made more shots", Wizards coach Scott Brooks plainly told reporters after a season-low 36.7 percent effort from the field.

The Wizards struggled on the boards all night with Boston outrebounding them 54-39 on the night.

With the regular season winding down, both teams will be looking to get back in the win column in order to bolster their postseason push.

In a game against a team the Celtics are battling against for seeding in the Eastern Conference playoffs, it did, as expected, get chippy.

Boston has also won six of its last 10 games and has at least split at the betting window, going 5-5 against the number during that 10-game stretch. "I can't sit this one out", Thomas said before the game.

OUR PREDICTION: The Wizards have failed to cover the spread in five of the last seven meetings with the Celtics and are 0-4 against the number in their last four games in Boston.

At the end of the third quarter, Marcus Smart drove to the hoop and had his shot hang and fall off the front rim, but Thomas swooped in and tipped the ball in as the buzzer sounded to extend the C's lead to 92-75. Beal torched the Celts in those two games, scoring 35 in Boston and then 31 in Washington, but he'll have his work cut out for him against one of the best perimeter defenders in the National Basketball Association tonight. Most of the extra curricular actions took place the last time the Wizards were in Boston, which resulted in a couple of technical fouls in the game and some postgame antics that ended up with players from both teams receiving fines. With just 12 games remaining, the Celtics have the opportunity to gain a stranglehold on the No. 2 seed in the East with a victory.
