Wizards' Victory Over The Celtics Boosts Their Play-In Hopes

Before taking on the Wizards, the Boston Celtics had already compiled three consecutive victories, which put them in excellent form for this game. The Boston Celtics, chasing the Milwaukee Bucks, now in first place in the Eastern Conference, have been picking up steam in recent games as they aim to take first place in their conference.

Regrettably, the Wizards are working toward their ends. Today, Washington stunned Boston with a rampage that ended with a score of 130-111. The team’s goal was to make the postseason.

In a game in which the Knicks were missing Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma, the New York Knicks were carried by Kristaps Porzingis, who recorded a double-double by scoring 32 points and grabbing 13 rebounds while also dishing out six assists. Deni Avdija also contributed 25 and 10.

The victory brought the Wizards’ record to 34-42, bringing them closer than ever before to the 10th slot, now held by the Chicago Bulls (36-39). With six games left in the regular season, Washington still has the opportunity to improve its prospects of making the playoffs.

Teams hoping to make the playoffs have found the Charlotte Hornets to be a formidable opponent. That is something that can be vouched for by the Dallas Mavericks. PJ Washington has been playing exceptionally well as of late, which is one of the reasons for their current success.

Washington totaled 43 points (five triples) in their victory over Oklahoma City Thunder, another team aiming to advance to the Play-In Tournament. They also pulled six rebounds and dished out five assists in the win.
