We are ready for Game 5 of the best of 7 series in the Eastern Conference, as the Boston Celtics take on the Washington Wizards on Wednesday. The top-seeded Boston Celtics won the first two games before the 4th seeded Wizards won their last two games. The Wizards downed Atlanta in the first round, and Boston took down Chicago.
The Boston Celtics finished the regular season with an Eastern Conference high 53 wins. The Celtics barely won Game 2, and then went on the road and were beat in the last two, which is a cause of concern heading back home. The Boston Celtics are -4.5 in this game on Wednesday.
Celtics Looking to Get Back on Track
The Boston Celtics are looking to get back on track after allowing 118.5 points per game in their last two games. The Celtics during the regular season allowed teams to score just 105.4. The offense for Boston is anchored by Isaiah Thomas, with more than 28 points per game. Boston as a team scored 108 per game.
The Celtics head coach Brad Stevens has been an emerging name as one of the top head coaches in all of the league. The former Butler coach has his team two wins from the Eastern Conference Finals, a season after winning 48 games.
Wizards Seeking Third Straight
The Washington Wizards are looking for their third straight win and would love to head back home with a chance to win the series. The Wizards are on the road; a place they have gone just 1-4 during the postseason. Washington finished the regular season with a 19-22 record away from home.
The Wizards are led by the guard combination of John Wall and Bradley Beal. Wall scored more than 23 points per game and dished out nearly 11 assists per game. The Wizards offense ranked 5th in the league; scoring more than 109 points per game.
Celtics Win at Home
The Boston Celtics are going to win this game at home. The Celtics are really good at home and know they have to bounce back and get this game. If Boston does not win this game, they are in big trouble heading back to the nation’s capital. The Celtics contain Wall and Beal and win at home.
The Washington Wizards are going to continue to fight in this series, and likely will push the Celtics to a win it all Game 7 later in the week. But, in this game, too much Boston. The final bet for this game on Wednesday is the Boston Celtics -4.5 over the Washington Wizards in Game 6.
