Wizards vs. Celtics Preview: Again?

New, comments

After a loss in beantown last night, the Wizards welcome Paul Pierce's old squad to the Phone Booth.

"Didn't we just play this team?"

"yup."

When and Where: Tonight the game is back in D.C., the Verizon Center to be specific. Oh, and it starts at 7:00 p.m.

How can you watch: The local guys have this one, tune into Comcast Sports Net. If you can't watch, you can listen to 99.1 WNEW.

Injuries: Nene is active, but projected to come off the bench for the Wizards. Martell Webster is still out recovering from back surgery for the Wizards and Vitor Favereni is out recovering from knee surgery for the Celtics.

How can the Wizards bounce back? As stated in last night's recap the Wizards must take advantage of the Celtics in the fourth quarter and Randy Wittman has to be more versatile with his lineups and rotations. Like, when the Celtics trot out three guards, Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger, it's okay to go small at that time. Too much too often, Wittman has waited until the very last second to pull the plug on an unsuccessful lineup or employ one that matches well with the opponent.

Also, more Rasual Butler. Thanks.

Will the Wizards win? I don't see this team losing back to back to the 2014-15 Celtics. John Wall and company should take care of business tonight.
