Wizards Vs. Celtics: Washington Takes On NBA's Best Without John Wall

When you're a rebuilding team like the Wizards, there are certain games that you circle on the calendar as sure losses. Tonight's game against the Boston Celtics looks like one of those. The Wizards have the following things working against them tonight.

  • They are playing the Boston Celtics.
  • They are playing the Boston Celtics on the road.
  • They are playing the Boston Celtics without John Wall.
  • They are playing the Boston Celtics on the second game of a back-to-back.
  • They are playing the Boston Celtics on the second game of a back-to-back when the Celtics have not played since last Saturday.
  • They are playing the Boston Celtics and will have Gilbert Arenas guard either Rajon Rondo or Ray Allen.
  • They are playing the Boston Celtics and Delonte West is playing.
Okay, so the last one is a joke. Still, this is going to be a major challenge for the Wizards. If they win, it will be a major, major step forward. If they lose, it won't be that big of a deal. Tip time is at 7:30.
