Bradley Beal had his 15th game of the season scoring 30 or more points after scoring 35 points with 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Four of the Wizards starters scored in the double figures and Russell Westbrook was one rebound away from another triple double. Westbrook finished the game with 13 points, 11 assists and 9 rebounds and Rui Hachimura had 15 points and 4 rebounds. The Wizards jumped out to a 55-43 lead at halftime and put the game away after leading 89-67 at the end of the third quarter.

Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown each had 25 points and 7 rebounds for the Celtics. They were the only players to score in double figures for the Celtics and Jayson Tatum scored a season low 6 points along with 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Tatum shot a disappointing 3-of-14 from the field and hasn’t shot over 50% from field since January 30th against the Lakers. Tatum is averaging 26.6 this season and it was a bad shooting night overall for the Celtics. They only made 36% of their field goals, 26% of their three pointers and 60% of their free throws. The Wizards improve to 7-17, the Celtics are now 13-13 and have lost two games in a row.
