Boston plays well versus Washington. Taking the points here wouldn't be that unreasonable I dont have the precise numbers but look it up in all the game preview sections.

Over 194 my pick

I read on Rotoworld that Rajon Rondo may not play tonight versus Washington because he continues to recover from his knee surgery (precaution).
He was 0-8 yesterday in the game versus the Heat. Guess that won't effect the much.

If Rondo doesn't play Phil Pressey (knew to me) will start for him. Boston's backcourt is really banged up with Jerryd Bayless out 7-10 days. And now Avery Bradley's status is not sure since he sprained his knee yesterday. He is not expected to play vs Washtington according to Rotoworld.com.
 
With that in mind putting Washington as a -8 favorite makes a little more sense.

Yes as much as I can say I love all Boston sports teams, the Celtics are by far the weakest. Rebuilding won't take overnight either. I'm not even convinced Rondo will make the adjustment of being the franchise player their hoping for. Alot of issues to be dealt with. The Celtics are at least 4 blockbuster trades away from even getting a look at a deep run in the playoffs. It saddens me to see such a "once"dominant franchise fall so hard so fast. I have confidence that Boston will be strong once again but it will be in years to come.

Wizards.  Tired Celtics legs play a factor.

Shocking game at half.....Celtics are bad put they play hard every night.  Wizards players should be embarrassed...but they aren't.
