Eastern Conference giants Boston Celtics will face off against the Washington Wizards in the NBA regular-season on Friday. The game will be played at the TD Garden in Boston and will begin at 6:00 AM IST on Saturday, January 9. Here's a look at how to watch Celtics vs Wizards live stream, team news, and our prediction for the same.
The Boston Celtics are on a three-game winning run as they host the Washington Wizards on Friday night. The Celtics, led by Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, have been impressive this season and have duly recovered from a slow start. The duo combined for 48 points in their 107-15 win over NBA finalists Miami Heat and needed Payton Pritchard's putback with two-tenths of a second left to cap off a thrilling game with the win. Boston have only lost one of their last six games and could jump ahead in the Eastern Conference standings with a win on Friday night.
The Washington Wizards have largely struggled this season, registering only two wins in eight games so far. The Wizards suffered a 141-136 defeat to the Philadelphia 76ers last time out, despite Bradley Beal's insane 60-point haul. Washington have shown the resolve to come back after suffering defeats in their first five games and will need to muster all their strength to seal bragging rights at the TD Garden. The Celtics are natural favourites, but the Wizards do pack a punch with an in-form Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook.
