Celtics Take Control In Fourth, Stop Wizards 99-88

 By Josh Dhani on 2/1/10

I wasn't able to watch this game, but, THANK GOD THE CELTICS FINALLY WON!!! But I was scared, looking at the ESPN Scoreboard as it showed the Wizards were leading throughout the game. When the fourth quarter started, the Wizards were leading.

But somehow, the Celtics made a comeback and were probably thinking, "Hey, we lost to the Lakers, Hawks, and Magic. But no way we are going to lose to Wizards! Hell no!" And after that, they got Washington, by the score of 99-88 to go up towards a 30-16 record.

We need the C's to secure their record in their division. They need to be ahead of the Toronto Raptors at ALL TIMES. Kevin Garnett helped the team with his 19 points, including a defensive stand in the fourth—holding Boston 2-of-18 in shooting. Nice....

"You're playing against the Boston Celtics, so you're not going to get a lot of calls. KG's going to set illegal screens; they're not going to be called. That's just part of the game," Wizards center Brendan Haywood said. "You're going to go to the basket, and if it's not basically just a straight-up WWF body slam, you're not getting the call."

This game was also rough, with Washington getting called for 24 personal fouls. Boston had 23. Antwan Jamison also had a frustrating game, with five fouls in the fourth quarter alone, having only eight points, a hurt knee...it was all horrible for him. I thought the refereeing was inconsistent at times. I thought that 'Tawn got hit a few times. You don't go 2 for 17 in his situation and not get to the line more than six times," Washington coach Flip Saunders said. "The guys were just really frustrated, especially 'Tawn, because of a lot of no-calls," Saunders added.

Great win for the Celtics. Rajon Rondo had another great game, with 17 points, twelve assists, and four rebounds.

Next stop is Miami on Wednesday against the Miami Heat. Looks to be a good one.
