CELTICS WITHSTAND WIZARDS FOR THE WIN
The C's let a 14 point half-time lead slip away from them and nearly lost a win against a mediocre Washington side. That being said, the Celtics never trailed in this 104-102 victory. And honestly, I'm glad they needed to struggle to win this one. They're so much more talented than most of the teams they play, and they often cruise to 15+ point victories. You don't learn much about a team's character in games like that.
With 2:23 left in the 4th, this game was tied 94-94. From that point on, Rondo made big shots, the C's made most of their free throws, and Washington couldn't score enough to make it a game.
This was a good hard win, and the 9th in a row for the Celtics.
Celtics @ Bulls Saturday night.
