Wizards vs. Celtics: Washington jumps out to 42-37 lead

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Behind Kevin Seraphin, the Wizards could be on their way to their first victory.

The Washington Wizards lost to the Boston Celtics four days ago, but so far on Wednesday, the roles have been reversed. At halftime, Washington leads Boston, 42-37.

Fresh off his 19 points against Boston on Saturday, Kevin Seraphin is at it again for the Wizards. He has 10 points off the bench so far.

Seraphin isn't the only one on the Wizards' bench who is off to a good start. Martell Webster already has 8 points on Wednesday for Washington.

Aside from the bench production, the story of the game so far is the Washington defense. Boston is shooting just 37.5 percent from the field at the half. The Wizards have forced nine Celtics turnovers in the first 24 minutes.

Despite the early lead, the Wizards cannot be happy with the production from their starting lineup. Through the first two quarters, the starting five has just 15 points.

If the Wizards hold on, they will notch their first victory of the season.
