Yahoo  Happy New Year to all Celtic fans as the team carries over the success against the Pistons into Washington where they beat the Wizards 94-86.  Washington is still looking for their first win of the season.             The Wizards are led by John Wall who is not having the most successful start to his sophomore campaign with only 13 points and 6 assists per game.  The Wizards famously had a weird situation happen last game for them where Flip Saunders forgot to activate Roger Mason in the line up, then proceeded to substitute the player in.            This is the perfect opponent for the Celtics to get back on track as they try to recover from their three loss road trip.  Paul Pierce is in the starting line up again, however, it is unlikely that we see the Captain play starters minutes.  Washington has two large bodies in the paint, so my focus on this game will be the defensive end, more importantly the points in the paint battle.            The Celtic b

John Wall shines, but Rajon Rondo is better as Celtics top Wizards

Before the start of Sunday’s game against Boston, Wizards Coach Flip Saunders told John Wall to have fun again. The point guard did just that, and as a result, Wall turned in his best game statistically. The No. 1 overall pick in 2010 had a team-high 19 points and eight assists, and he added seven rebounds, a steal and a block in nearly 39 1 / 2 minutes. That production, however...

Celtics 94, Wizards 86: Rondo, Garnett too much for Washington

I imagine Rashard Lewis wakes up each morning, admires his grizzly goatee in the mirror, thanks God (or Otis Smith) for his $118 million contract and then spends 45 minutes throwing darts at a board adorned with photos of Nick Young, Andray Blatche and Jordan Crawford. It took just 18 seconds for Young to launch his first step-back, contested jump shot of the night. Blatche continued...

Tonight the Boston Celtics faced off against the athletic, John Wall powered, Washington Wizards. The Celtics were looking to get back to a .500 record, after the convincing 94-86 win last night with Rajon Rondo leading the way. The Wizards were grasping for their first win of the season (and the new year) after racking up their 4th loss (0-4). With Jermaine O'Neal out for the...

O’Neal taking an active role

WASHINGTON - On one play last night, Celtics center Jermaine O’Neal tried to dunk lefthanded on the Wizards’ JaVale McGee after a behind-the-back dish from Rajon Rondo. Perhaps it was the criticism he received after scoring just 8 points in the first three games, but O’Neal has been an aggressive and productive scorer the past two games.
