The Wizards showed a lot of courage on Wednesday night in Boston as they battled back from a fourth quarter deficit to send the game into overtime. But the team eventually ran out of gas and they fell 100-94 to the Celtics at TD Garden.
The Celtics got off to another strong start and had the Wizards down early, but once again the Wizards second unit brought the team back and this time gave them a five point halftime lead (42-37).
After the third quarter went back and forth, the Celtics would build up an eight point lead heading into the final frame. The Celtics led for nearly the entire fourth quarter, but the Wizards would not give up and Bradley Beal's three-pointer with three minutes left gave the Wizards a one point lead. After the Celtics regained the lead, the Wizards found themselves down two with just seconds remaining. That was when Chris Singleton stepped up and went to the hole hard for an emphatic slam over Kevin Garnett to tie the game and send it into overtime. But, the overtime period was unkind to the Wizards and a combination of turnovers and missed shots led to their demise.
Kevin Seraphin, Bradley Beal, and Martell Webster all scored 16 points to lead the team. A.J. Price added 15 points and seven assists, while Chris Singleton came off the bench to put in 14 of his own.
