Washington
Boston

[BOSTON] — The Boston Celtics played host to the Washington Wizards last night and the C's did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 117-108 victory. The win bumps Boston's record up to 24-15 on the season, while the loss drags Washington's down to 19-19. Though a win's a win and Celtics fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

On this night it was Isaiah Thomas leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 38 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 0 blocks and 0 steals in 38 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Thomas included - and the most important part is that the Celtics walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, John Wall did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Wizards. Wall's 9 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

From a personal standpoint, Bradley Beal made his presence felt from beyond the arc, toying with defenders all night long and connecting on an impressive 6 bombs. Putting a stop to any NBA calibre talent is no easy task, but even more so when they're red-hot from beyond three-point range.

Boston's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Wizards, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the C's will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling C's will be a date with the Atlanta Hawks while the visiting Wizards will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers.
