Boston Celtics vs Washington Wizards: Storylines

The Boston Celtics almost let a double-digit lead vs. the Miami Heat slip through their fingers. Luckily for them, standout rookie Payton Pritchard got an offensive board and a tip-in to help them get their sixth win of the season. They've looked pretty solid so far and will only get better once Jeff Teague and Kemba Walker are ready to come back.

The Washington Wizards almost pulled off a miracle comeback vs. the Philadelphia 76ers but fell short of their goal towards the end of the game. Bradley Beal was spectacular with a career-high 60 points but as it often happens when he breaks out, his teammates don't play along.
