After four straight wins against the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the NBA playoffs, the Boston Celtics have moved onto the second round. Now they will face the Washington Wizards, led by John Wall and Bradley Beal.
The tension with the Wizards built up throughout the year, starting with the Celtics beating the Wizards to the highly coveted Al Horford signing. Then the Wizards announced they were holding a funeral for the Celtics for their contest in January, where Washington showed up in all black and Bradley Beal dominated late to back up the trash talk.
If the series against the Bulls was a battle, this matchup against the Wizards is lining up to be a bloodbath. Here’s when and where you can watch each game (all times eastern).
