Boston has won five straight playoff games since dropping the opening two games to Chicago. Now the Celtics are rolling and looking to take a 2-0 series lead here over the Wizards in the second round. Isaiah Thomas tossed in 33 points to lead four Celtic starters in double figures and Al Horford was one rebound short of a triple double as Boston controlled the game and really dominated in the third quarter, holding a 36-16 advantage.
The Wizards shot nearly 51 percent in that game but only connected for 10-of-23 triples, nine fewer long balls than the Celtics made, which obviously proved to be a difference. Six Wizards finished in double figures and they got some solid bench play but it wasn't enough.
Washington is going to have to find a way to slow down the Celtics from downtown. The perimeter defense of Bradley Beal and John Wall will be important here tonight and the status of forward Markieff Morris will play a major role as well.
