Celtics Vs. Wizards Final Score: Washington Still Winless, Falls 94-86

The Washington Wizards were hoping to pick up their first win of the NBA Season going against a 1-3 Boston Celtics team that had been struggling, but the Wizards were outscored in the first half of the game 51-34 and never could catch back up, ultimately losing 94-86 in a game that was never really that close. Celtics forward Kevin Garnett just couldn't be slowed down, picking up 24 points and nine rebounds, while Rajon Rondo added another 18 points, 14 assists, and 11 rebounds.

In the loss, point guard John Wall led the Wizards in scoring with 19 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds. Nick Young picked up another 18 points while center JaVale McGee added 16 points, 14 rebounds, and picked up five blocks on defense.
