When everyone was asking Doc Rivers about the three-game stretch against Orlando, Atlanta and Los Angeles, Rivers was probably the only person to mention Washington.
At first glance it looks like the Celtics are walking into a post-apocalypse situation in D.C with the Wizards still dealing with the aftermath of the Gilbert Arenas-Javaris Crittenton incident.
Rivers compared this Wizards game to the Celtics loss earlier this month to Chicago at the Garden, also the last of a four-in-five.
And though the Celtics made pushes, but against a team that was diving into the TNT table for loose balls, they didn’t have enough energy to sustain. Chicago knew it, and Rivers suggested that the Wizards will, too.
