With both teams are coming off disappointing losses, the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards are gearing up for a big showdown at TD Garden Monday night. The Wizards are just 1.5 games behind the Celtics and out to prove that they are a force to be reckoned with. Most of the extra curricular actions took place the last time the Wizards were in Boston, which resulted in a couple of technical fouls in the game and some postgame antics that ended up with players from both teams receiving fines.

Monday night's matchup between the Wizards and Celtics will get plenty of attention for a variety of reasons. "We played (against Philly) and it was unfortunately a loss for us".

The Eastern Conference two great teams playing tonight in Boston. I know what's at stake, I know it's a big game for us. And worry about Washington. "I'm not going to play if I'm going to hurt the team". Just trying to get it back as strong as I possibly can. If the Celtics win, they would tie the season series at 2-2 and take a 2.5 games lead in the standings with just 12 games left. That five will start Monday's game.

It seemed that the Celtics gravitated away from doing the things that helped them pull ahead by as many as 13 points, chief among them was playing nearly exclusively through Horford who also had eight rebounds, six assists and two blocked shots along with his 27 points.

With the score knotted at 91-91, Covington sank his crucial 3-pointer and 76ers guard TJ McConnell sank a jumper that triggered a 9-2 Philadelphia flurry to seal the win. The 76ers won the game 105-99. Al Horford scoring 27 points and pulling down seven rebounds in the last game.

"I don't think so", said Stevens. "That's how we lost".

Boston is also dealing with a notable ailment with Isaiah Thomas' bruised right knee. Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley will be huge defensively against John Wall and Bradley Beal.

Expect for the game to be tight and chippy through the first half. This is the first game since the Wizards pulled off a major attention-grabbing stunt and then followed through with a double-digit beatdown of a very good Celtics team.
