Boston Continues War With Wizards Friday – The battle in the East continues back in Washington for game six. The Celtics dealt the Wizards a 123-101 loss in game five to put them in the driver’s seat for the series.
The first five games of the series have been hotly contested and things are likely to get testy again in game 6. The home team has won the first five games so if that pattern continues, John Wall and the Washington Wizards will be trying to answer the beat down that they got at the hands of Boston last time out.
Boston is rightfully favored here, but do not count out the Wizards. Over the last few years this team has been wildly inconsistent. Remember thy had a similarly gritty playoff run two years ago then they missed the playoffs last year altogether. This year’s first half looked to be a lottery team but they caught fire and were one of the hottest teams in the NBA after the calendar flipped. The Wizards are going to be hard to kill as John Wall is a leader who will make sure they fight to the very end. Based on the fact that all the playoff games have been decided by double figure disparities and a Wizards win is not too far fetched.
Meanwhile Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers await the winner of the series resting at home after back to back 4 game sweeps. Nothing would suit them better than to watch the Celts and Wiz go seven.
