Washington Wizards vs Boston Celtics
NBA Regular Season
WAS VS BOS MATCH PREVIEW:
Washington Wizards host Boston Celtics in NBA action on Thursday (IST) at Capital One Arena, Washington.
Wizards (42-38) are 8th in the Eastern Conference and have already qualified for the NBA playoffs which will be taking place from April 14 onwards. After playing host to Boston, the Wizards will be wrapping up their regular season on the road against Orlando Magic.
While Celtics (54-26) are 2nd in the Eastern Conference, five games adrift of conference champions Toronto Raptors. The gap between them and 3rd placed Philadelphia 76ers is four games, so the Celts will definitely finish the season as conference runners-up.
After this game, Kyrie Irving's team will be playing their last game of the regular season at home against Brooklyn Nets.
Match Timing: Tomorrow, April 11, 05:30 AM IST
Venue: Capital One Arena , Washington, D.C
Form of the Team- WAS VS BOS
Boston Celtics lost their last game 106-112 against Atlanta Hawks, which was their 3rd loss in the last 10 games. In the last seven games, the visitors have gone 4-3. The trend of wins for Celtics this season is quite a strange one. The Greens have won more on the road than they managed at home in 2017-18.
The 16-times Champions have played 80 games in the regular season up until now, 40 each at home and away. The Celts lost 14 times at TD Garden while losing in just 12 games when playing on the road. So Washington Wizards should be wary of the visitors in this match.
Celtics are averaging 104 points this season, and that makes them only the 19th best team in NBA in that regard. While the opponents are racking up points at an average of 100.3, so no doubt it's their defense that makes them a team hard to be beaten.
The Boston are shooting at 45.1 percent overall, and 37.8 percent from beyond the arc. Meanwhile, opponents are shooting at 43.9 overall, and 33.8 from beyond the arc.
Former Cleveland Cavaliers man Kyrie Irving is doing wonders for his new team. The 26-year-old Point-Guard is averaging 24.4 points, making him the 11th best player in NBA in 2017-18. But he is out injured and won't be returning until at least playoffs start.
Washington Wizards are on a four-game losing streak heading into this match. In fact, the Wizards have lost eight times in their last 10 games. But in this game, they are playing at their home Capital One Arena where they have fared better than on the road.
In 40 home games, they won 22 and lost 18 times, while in away games, the Wizards have split the games.
As a team, Washington are averaging 106.7 per game, while opponents are accumulating 106.2 points per game against them. That means, they are not short of points but their defense is leaking too many points per game.
