4 p.m. ET: Already, the Celtics are thinking about getting their record back to .500.
It might seem a little early in the season to focus on something that will not matter for another few months, but the Celtics cannot afford to slip farther back in the season’s opening month. The Knicks have looked like a legitimate contender for the Atlantic Division crown (at least so far), and every game the Celtics fall back is another game they must make back later on.
Wednesday’s opponent should be easy pickings, but the Wizards overcame an atrocious first quarter on Saturday to make the C’s sweat in crunch time. Washington looks to complete the job this time.
