The Boston Celtics this season have been neck and neck with the Washington Wizards for the second seed in the Eastern Conference. With the Cleveland Cavaliers 3 games ahead, the one seed is still a possibility for both teams if Cleveland falls into an even deeper slump. On Tuesday, March 20, the Celtics and Wizards will face off at the TD Garden.
Tuesday’s game against Washington could prove to be the difference in who becomes the second seed in the Eastern Conference. A second seed in the East would most likely be a matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks accompanied by the “Greek Freak”, Giannis Antetokounmpo. A three seed bid would most likely be a matchup withPaul George Indiana Pacers.
As of late, the Washington Wizards have played their best basketball, with Bradley Beal and John Wall leading the way. Bradley Beal has been showing everyone why he should have been an All-Star, averaging 26 points in the last five games and playing with a chip on his shoulder after the All-Star snub. John Wall continues his dominant season, showing why Washington deserves to be a top seed in the East.
The Boston Celtics will hopefully pull out a victory against the Wizards on Tuesday night in a big game for the team. The Celtics will be playing Washington as the end of a back-to-back, where they will play Philadelphia on Monday.
