Boston @ Washington

Current Records: Boston 23-24; Washington 23-23

What to Know

The Washington Wizards will play host again and welcome the Boston Celtics to Capital One Arena, where tip-off is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET Sunday. These two teams are looking to take out their frustrations on one another after having lost close ones recently.

It was close but no cigar for Washington as they fell 109-105 to the Toronto Raptors this past Friday. Washington's loss came about despite a quality game from point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who shot 5-for-7 from beyond the arc and finished with 17 points, seven dimes and seven rebounds.

Speaking of close games: it was a hard-fought game, but Boston had to settle for a 109-105 defeat against the Portland Trail Blazers this past Friday. A silver lining for the Celtics was the play of small forward Jayson Tatum, who posted a double-double on 27 points and ten boards in addition to seven assists.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Washington is expected to win a tight contest. But bettors beware: they are only 7-15 against the spread when favored.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
