Boston Celtics vs. Washington Wizards - 3/20/17 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Crowder accepts lesser role with Celtics

Will the Wizards once again struggle to cover against the Celtics tonight when they visit Boston at 7:30PM ET? The Sixers rallied from a 13-point deficit in the third quarter for the upset win over the Celtics. Although Thomas believes it's very important for the Celtics to take care of business at home, he also knows his team can't get caught up in trying to change its game plan. Al Horford led the Celts with 27 points, while the team went just 6/29 from 3-point range. "I guess it was just one of those games for all of us". Ultimately, this game wasn't as close as the final score indicated.

Washington, which arrived in town on Sunday, had won two of the three previous games against Boston albeit both were in D.C. with Boston's lone win prior to Monday coming on the parquet back in January.

For Boston to have the kind of season they're more than capable of having which is to get to the Eastern Conference finals, chances are high that they'll have to go through Washington to do so. While nothing would be wrapped up, a loss in Boston tonight would make it very hard for the Wizards to find a way to pass the Celts in the standings, but a win would put them right in the mix with about 3.5 weeks left in the regular season.

No Love Lost Not only will this be a big game in the standings, but there will also be a lot of pride on the line as these two teams have built up some history in the three games they've played this season.

Wizards lead the season series against to Celtics, while the last game against to Boston has ended with Washington's win 123-108.

Boston has also won six of its last 10 games and has at least split at the betting window, going 5-5 against the number during that 10-game stretch. Marcus Smart came right back to respond with a floater down the lane on the next possession, and the game was decided by then.

"I don't put a ceiling on my game", he said. At the start of December, they were an ugly 6-12 and looked like a team wasn't buying in yet to new head coach Scott Brooks.

Of the Celtics' 11 remaining games, seven are against teams that have one of the top eight records in the East, or they are just on the outside of the playoffs looking in.
