Wizards Show Up in All Black and Dead the Celtics
Things have been testy for a while now between the Washington Wizards and the Boston Celtics. In their last game, John Wall of the Wizards and Jae Crowder of the Boston Celtics got into a little altercation. Crowder appeared to put his finger in Wall’s face who then retaliated by slapping Crowder. The Celtics won the game 117–108 and John Wall had a terrible game, arguably his worst of the season.The Wizards showed up in all black Tuesday night to send a message. Wall commented, “All black everything, a funeral.” Wizard’s Kelly Oubre Jr. added, “We’re ready for whatever, man. Round three, let’s get it.” Celtics’ Isaiah Thomas had this to say in response, “I saw the funeral and all black thing last night and I just laughed about it.” Wall and the Wizards had the last laugh Tuesday night. He finished with 27 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists and led his squad to a 123–108 victory on their home court. Bradley Beal added 31 points and 5 assists to the funeral procession. The Celtics may have been buried Tuesday night, but the rivalry between these two Eastern Conference contenders is alive and well!
