Undermanned, Boston guts out a win against one of the hottest teams in the East.

NBA: Washington Wizards at Boston Celtics Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The story line won’t be that Boston beat a surging Washington team after a heartbreak loss in Toronto the night before. It won’t be that they won against a quality opponent with Avery Bradley, Amir Johnson, Jaylen Brown, Tyler Zeller, and James Young. It won’t even be that Isaiah Thomas went superstar supernova and scored 20 points (again) in the fourth quarter. The story line will be a Jae Crowder nose poke that lead to a John Wall slap that lead to a post game scuffle that lead to police officers patrolling the hallway between the locker rooms after the game.
