What to Know

The Washington Wizards have enjoyed the comforts of home their last four games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the Boston Celtics at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at TD Garden. Keep an eye on the score for this one: these two teams posted some lofty points totals in their previous games, so things might heat up even more when they meet.

You’re bound to get a positive result if you outscore your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly how it played out for Washington this past Friday. They claimed a resounding 135-103 win over the Dallas Mavericks at home. Washington’s small forward Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was one of the most active players for the team, shooting 6-for-11 from downtown and finishing with 35 points.

Meanwhile, Boston didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with the Indiana Pacers this past Friday, but they still walked away with a 128-123 victory. The Celtics relied on the efforts of shooting guard Jaylen Brown, who had 32 points and seven assists, and small forward Jayson Tatum, who had 31 points and six assists along with six rebounds.

The Wizards have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 12.50 point spread they are up against. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money on Washington’s opponents whenever they hit the road.

Their wins bumped Washington to 34-43 and Boston to 48-30. Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
