Wizards Schedule 2012: Washington Hosts Boston Celtics In Sunday Matinée

The Wizards play the third of four games against the Boston Celtics this season on Sunday.

The Washington Wizards play their penultimate game against the Boston Celtics on Sunday in their only outing of the weekend. Tipoff is set for 1 Eastern on Comcast SportsNet and NBA TV.

Washington previously played Boston in a home-and-home, back-to-back series on Jan. 1 and 2, losing both games by eight points. In the second meeting, the Celtics rallied in the fourth quarter for the victory, spoiling strong performances by Andray Blatche (28 points, nine rebounds) and JaVale McGee (17 points, 14 boards, three blocked shots). Ray Allen drained six three-pointers in that game en route to scoring a 27 points to lead the Celtics.

The Wizards are 6-11 in their last 17 games against Boston, recording their most recent win in the series in the penultimate game of the 2010/11 season. Boston rested its trio of future Hall-of-Famers--Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett--in that matchhup, while John Wall poured in 24 points for the Wizards.
