That was ugly. 118-98, Wizards lose.
But they play again tonight, and we have a preview for that game against the Hawks. Even though you may want to forget yesterday ever happened, we still had GameThreads and data to sift through.

Best comment of the first half
TiltheBitterEnd noted that the problem wasn't just the starters per se, the bench was just not on point tonight.
Like the last couple seasons, the Wizards' bench has been comprised of veterans who are often past their primes. When they play younger teams like the Celtics, things like this can happen.
Best comment of the second half
Knowledge92 put it succinctly in this take before the third quarter even started:
The Wizards were coming off an emotional high Wednesday after beating the Spurs. We were going crazy too. But sometimes that also means that the foot goes off the gas and a blowout is the end result.

elliotlevy2 kept things in perspective after the game was done.
Keep commenting tonight, ladies and gents and go Wizards!
