Through 1 Quarter

Although the Washington Wizards came into the contest as underdogs, they’re on track to steal the victory from the Boston Celtics. Washington has emerged as the frontrunner after one quarter and is ahead of Boston 27-19.

The Wizards haven’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to six points or fewer. The Celtics have enjoyed the tag-team combination of center Robert Williams III and power forward Al Horford. The former has four points along with four boards and two blocks, while the latter has four points in addition to four rebounds and one block.

What to Know

The Boston Celtics will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will take on the Washington Wizards at 7:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at TD Garden. Boston should still be riding high after a win, while Washington will be looking to right the ship.

It may have taken overtime to finish the job, but the Celtics ultimately got the result they were hoping for on Monday with a 140-129 victory over the Charlotte Hornets. Boston’s small forward Jayson Tatum looked sharp as he shot 6-for-12 from beyond the arc and finished with 41 points, eight dimes and seven boards.

Meanwhile, Washington lost to the Brooklyn Nets on the road by a decisive 104-90 margin. Small forward Kyle Kuzma wasn’t much of a difference maker for Washington; Kuzma played for 26 minutes but put up just six points on 3-for-11 shooting. That makes it three consecutive games in which Kuzma has had at least 11 rebounds.

The Celtics are the favorite in this one, with an expected 4-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.

Boston didn’t have too much trouble with the Wizards at home when the two teams previously met in May as they won 118-100. Boston’s victory shoved Washington out of the playoffs, so they have a target on their back.
