Celtics vs Wizards Preview

The Celtics and Wizards play tonight at 8:00 PM in D.C. The Celtics who are on a 12 game winning streak stand at 20-2 and at the top at the NBA, the Wizards are 4-15 right now and are having trouble winning ball games.  Interim head coach Ed Tapscott hasn't been having much success since taking over. Now I could see this game getting out of hand early, but I expect the Wizards to play a hard fought game on there home floor. I plan on watching a high intensity game, with two teams that wanna win. Now I know the Wizards are 4-15, but because there playing at home, I don't expect a bad effort from them.

Here are my projected starting line ups.

Washing Wizards

C: JaVale McGee
PF: Antawn Jamison
SF: Caron Butler
SG: DeShawn Stevenson
PG: Mike James

Boston Celtics

C: Kendrick Perkins
PF: Kevin Garnett
SF: Paul Pierce
SG: Ray Allen
PG: Rajon Rondo


Well, this game should be intresting to say the least. The game, as I said, is being played in D.C. in front of of the Wizards fans, so I can't see them down 20 at half and them being booed off the floor at halftime. But as well as the Celtics have been playing, I wouldn't count that option out complelty. I see this game being tight and acctually coming down to the last few minutes. I think the Wizards are better then everyone gives them credit for. They are bad, 4-15 is just plain bad, but that doesn't mean that wont compete. I see the Celtics winning 103-94.
