If there is anyone else on the Boston Celtics team besides Jeff Green, please let us know now. If you are the Celtics, you can only hope that you find a way to start winning games, because the effort tonight by the Wizards tonight left you running in circles looking for answers.
Washington who continues to make their name known in the Eastern Conference is looking like the favorite to chase the Raptors all season long, the Celtics are just searching for answers with the departure of Rondo.
With Rondo gone, none of Pierce’s teammates who won a championship with him in 2007-08 remains.
“They moved on. They’re in a rebuild phase,” Pierce said. “It’s a new era now.”
Pierce has obviously moved on and in a good way with Washington. He continues to make things happen night after night. Tonight was no different, hitting on 6 for 9 from the field and 3 for 5 from long range tallying 17 points.
For the Celtics, their night seemed to end before first quarter ended, they were behind 30-12 and outrebounded by 16-6 and had eight turnovers.
“You can’t win many games like this one tonight against a very good Wizards team,” said Boston Head Coach Brad Stevens.
The Wizards have their biggest test of the season with the 5 game road swing coming up that features Houston, Dallas, OKC, San Antonio and New Orleans.
