Wizards Rolls Over the Celtics for the Second Time in Three Days

 

Caron Butler

The Washington Wizards have proven to the rest of the league that they can win against teams with winning records when they beat the league leading Boston Celtics 88-83 for the second time in three days.
The game was pretty close and was decided only in the fourth quarter when the Wizards outscored the Boston squad 29-20.
Caron Butler scored 9 of his 21 points during a 25-6 run in the middle of the fourth period and gave the Wizards a back-to-back win against the Celtics. Antawn Jamison had another double-double night with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Butler and Jamison had plenty of help from their teammates. DeShawn Stevenson had 16 points while Brendan Haywood added 14 points and 7 rebounds. Antonio Daniels scored only 7 points but dished out 9 assists.

 

Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett played strong and tallied 23 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists but had little help from his teammates. Paul Pierce finished with only 18 points and Ray Allen struggled in the game and finished with only 16 points on a 5-14 shooting. No other Celtics player scored in double figures.
Even with the loss, the Boston Celtics still holds the league best 30-6 record while the Washington Wizards improves to a 20-16 record.
