Everything for the Boston Celtics on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time).
The Boston Celtics took a 1-0 lead in their National Basketball Association play-off conference semi-final showdown against the Washington Wizards with a 123-111 comeback victory.

"What else is there to say?" pondered a baffled Stevens after the game. Game One is Tuesday at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. He made another change in the second half, inserting Marcus Smart in the starting group. Didn't register their first rebound of the game until the 5:57 mark.Kelly Olynyk has scored in double figures in three of his last four games, after doing so just twice in his first 11 career playoff games.
"I'm playing tomorrow. It's final", said Morris, who sat on the bench receiving treatments as his teammates practiced. 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.style="text-align: center;"
