Washington Wizards 55, Boston Celtics 44 (Q2 01:43)

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Montrezl Harrell is destroying Boston inside. He’s ragdolling the Celtics in the paint. – 8:30 PM

Jay King @ByJayKing
Montrezl Harrell is mutilating the Celtics. – 8:29 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Jabari Parker gave Boston good minutes offensively. As his stint went along, the Wizards started attacking him in isolation for buckets. – 8:28 PM

Marc D’Amico @celtics
THROW IT DOWN TIME LORD pic.twitter.com/yWN2ci736b8:28 PM

Abby Chin @tvabby
Jaylen Brown collides hard with Daniel Gafford. Both go down holding their knees. Jaylen got up pretty quick and stays in the game. Gafford had to be helped off the court without putting any weight on his right leg. – 8:28 PM

Chris Miller @cmillsnbcs
Prayers up for Daniel Gafford. He’s being helped to the lockeroom with a right knee injury after bumping knees with Jaylen Brown. – 8:27 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Was initially hard to tell what happened, but Daniel Gafford and Jaylen Brown got tangled up on a fast break, and Gafford stayed down for a long time while holding what appeared to be his right knee. He eventually got up and was helped off, but put little weight on his right leg. – 8:27 PM

David Aldridge @davidaldridgedc
Correction: Gafford went down after a collision with Jaylen Brown. Helped to the locker room. – 8:27 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Daniel Gafford was helped off the floor and to the locker room after suffering an apparent right knee injury. Not good. – 8:27 PM

John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Jaylen Brown and Daniel Gafford collided and Gafford went down hard holding his right leg. He’s being helped off the floor and to the locker room unable to put any weight on it – 8:27 PM

Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Daniel Gafford being taken off the floor with no pressure on his right leg. #Celtics #Wizards8:26 PM

Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Jaylen Brown and Daniel Gafford collided knees just now and Gafford was in a lot of pain. Gafford is being carried off by his teammates to the locker room now very slowly and not putting weight on his leg. – 8:26 PM

David Aldridge @davidaldridgedc
Wizards’ Daniel Gafford down and holding his knee after colliding with Jayson Tatum in the second quarter. – 8:26 PM

Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
Daniel Gafford is down, and clutching the back of his left knee. – 8:26 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Daniel Gafford is down on the Wizards sideline holding his knee in pain. It does not look good. – 8:25 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Oh man. Daniel Gafford is down holding his right knee and in obvious pain. – 8:25 PM

Jay King @ByJayKing
Jaylen Brown limping a bit, held his knee for a second after he went down to the court. Not ideal for the Celtics. – 8:25 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Daniel Gafford’s on the ground clutching his right leg – 8:25 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Montrezl Harrell.
15 points
7/8 FG
2 rebounds
+12 – 8:22 PM

Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Montrezl Harrell with 15 points in 13 minutes. #Celtics #Wizards8:21 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Celtics seem to have no answers for Montrezl Harrell. – 8:21 PM

Mark Murphy @Murf56
Schroder, second in sixth man voting in 2019-20, is bringing that spark now. Hits a three, drives baseline next time down, and then steals the ball and feeds Horford off the break. – 8:18 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Impressive stretch there from Dennis Schroder, who – after the Wizards had broken the game open with a 28-8 run – hits a 3, drives in for a layup, gets a steal and creates another layup for Al Horford on 3 straight possessions to get Boston back to within 38-31 early in the 2nd. – 8:17 PM

John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Schroder with a 3, a steal, and an assist to Horford to force a Wizards timeout. – 8:17 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Schroder came back in and changed the energy. Celtics cut the Wizards lead down to 7. – 8:16 PM

Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Dennis Schroder breathing some life into the Celtics offense, 7-0 run for Boston. – 8:16 PM

Marc D’Amico @celtics
that ball movement pic.twitter.com/CcTb9M3s608:16 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Montrezl Harrell has 11 pts in 9 min on 5-6 FG. This one was way harder than it looks. pic.twitter.com/hezGD0Kmwf8:16 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Parker played KCP as well as you can and KCP still buried the corner three. Wizards got out of the box and are feeling good right now. – 8:15 PM

Rashad Mobley @rashad20
Anyone else cheating on the Wizards with the World Series or is it just me? – 8:14 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Good ATO from Udoka. Lots of movement and results in Horford hitting Parker for the bucket. – 8:13 PM

Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
A 21-3 Wizards run…after the Raptors closed the Celtics home opener 55-25.
Not ideal.
Wizards by 12 early 2nd. – 8:13 PM

Jay King @ByJayKing
The Celtics have scored three points in the last 5:18. – 8:12 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Montrezl Harrell is certainly holding himself accountable.
4/5 from the field, 9 points and 1 rebound – 8:12 PM

Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
21-3 #Wizards run – 8:11 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
After going 0-2 from down town last game, Davis Bertans knocks down his first 3 point attempt of the night.
(He also made a mid range jumper earlier – 2/2 from the field) – 8:11 PM

John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
OK so apparently Montrezl Harrell is a first team All NBA player now and no one on the Celtics can guard him – 8:10 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
7-0 start to Q2 for the Wizards. Celtics defense has fallen apart after a really good start. – 8:10 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Wizards have a 19-0 advantage in bench scoring so far against the Celtics. – 8:10 PM

Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
25-7 Wizards run. – 8:10 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
A 14-3 run to end the first quarter has the Wizards up 24-19 after one here in Boston. Ugly quarter for both sides, with the Wiz going 9-for-24, and the Celtics going 8-for-24. – 8:08 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
After one, the Wizards lead the Celtics 24-19. Solid defense helping out early.
Beal, Kuzma: 6p
Harrell: 5p
Tatum: 5p – 8:07 PM

#Celtics score 3pts in final 4 minute of 1Q, trail #Wizards 24-19. Kuzma 6, Beal 6, Harrell 5; Tatum 5, Horford 4, RWilliams 4. – 8:07 PM

John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Just one made field goal in the final four minutes as the Celtics went cold once Tatum went to the bench. – 8:07 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Wizards were down 6, but end the 1st quarter leading the Celtics 24-19. Boston shot 33.3% FG. Defense has shown up early. – 8:07 PM

Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Ugly offensive first quarter for Celtics: 33 percent shooting, 25 percent from 3. – 8:06 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Robert Williams is going to the offensive glass a lot early in the season. I wonder if part of that is because Boston is fine with him picking up guards in transition as he gets back. If you trust him to switch on them in the halfcourt, might as well pick them up on the change. – 8:06 PM

Abby Chin @tvabby
Wizards hunting Montrezl Harrell post-ups when he draws Jayson Tatum. Rob Williams stepped over to help and got a perfectly timed block. Grant Williams slid over on the next possession, but Harrell draws the foul. – 8:06 PM

Mark Murphy @Murf56
Wizards get some mileage out of working Harrell against Tatum in the post. – 8:05 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Tatum went to the post and drew some free throws! 😍😍😍 – 8:02 PM

Marc D’Amico @celtics
still got it 😏💪🏽 pic.twitter.com/buxy8AtF4U8:01 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Josh Richardson has not looked good defensively early in this season. He just left his stance open and Beal blew right past him for a layup. – 7:57 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Deni Avdija defense is real – Sorry Jaylen Brown – 7:56 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I’m not sure if it’s the sets, but Montrezl Harrell is doing a lot of standing at the top of the key and doing nothing. He’s not screening. He’s not rim running. He’s not cutting. He’s just standing out there. – 7:55 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
As soon as Kyle Kuzma heard in preseason he has the green light, that’s all he needed to hear. Wizards need him to shoot. – 7:55 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Wizards hit their first three pointer of the night thanks to Kyle Kuzma – team is 1/6 tonight
Also 1/4 from the FT line. – 7:54 PM

Jay King @ByJayKing
Kyle Kuzma just shot the Jonas Jerebko running hook and it was glorious. – 7:54 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Al Horford looks SPRY! – 7:54 PM

John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Rob and Tatum out of the game first. Schroder in with Grant, but it’s the Schroder/Horford pair I really want to keep together so this works – 7:54 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Lineup of Holiday, Beal, Deni, Kuzma and Harrell right now. – 7:53 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Jayson Tatum and Robert Williams the early subs tonight. Bit a of tweak from Ime Udoka. Presumably, they’ll both come back on to bridge Q1-Q2 with the reserves. – 7:52 PM

Marc D’Amico @celtics
making it look too easy pic.twitter.com/FRvnUq2Rgx7:51 PM

John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Me, questioning whether Horford & Rob can truly thrive together pic.twitter.com/YTWzoOqWmE7:51 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I’d like to see Robert Williams look a little more towards shooting when he gets the ball in the paint vs going to the kick-out pass so quickly. – 7:51 PM

Marc D’Amico @celtics
As we begin our home-and-home series against the Wizards, Ime Udoka discusses the upside of having time to make adjustments.
Tune in now to catch night one on @NBCSBoston. pic.twitter.com/1ei2n42ONP7:50 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Wizards have Bradley Beal assigned to Jayson Tatum early and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on Jaylen Brown. – 7:48 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Al Horford running the break. Just your average 6’10” PF thing. – 7:47 PM

Abby Chin @tvabby
Dennis Schroder, by the way, the #Celtics most active player when he’s on the bench. Rarely ever sits down for long. – 7:46 PM

John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Jaylen Brown just looooves to eurostep now. Every fast break down the middle is a right-left eurostep – 7:46 PM

Abby Chin @tvabby
Dennis Schroder talking a little smack from the sideline to his former teammate with the Lakers Kyle Kuzma. Kus keeps looking over and smiling. – 7:46 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Bradley Beal had a good laugh with the Celtics bench, and close friend – and fellow St. Louis native – Jayson Tatum after stripping him on that last possession. – 7:45 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
When they have a chance to get set, it looks like Boston is playing some kind of matchup zone. – 7:45 PM

John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Just saw Robert Williams setting a pick for Al Horford, which is new and interesting – 7:45 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
That was a nice pass by Tatum to Smart. Passing vision is better than ever from Tatum. – 7:45 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Bradley Beal made a floater for all those who hated the 3-pointers lol – 7:42 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
It’s going to take a bit to get used to seeing Kyle Kuzma in a Wizards jersey. – 7:41 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
The small sample size of early season games means I put little stock into things that could just be anomalies.
That said, it will be interesting to see the Wizards play the Celtics and Hawks twice over the next four games as a more extended litmus test. – 7:40 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Nick Richards has done a nice job providing competent backup center play the last 2 games with PJ Washington out. Nothing spectacular, but he was totally unproven coming into the season. – 7:40 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I think it’s become clear that when they are all healthy, Ime Udoka likes the Smart, Brown, Tatum, Horford, R. Williams group to open games.
Schroder brings good energy and scoring off the bench. And Horford will go out early in each half for Grant, then back to bridge quarters. – 7:17 PM

Steve Bulpett @SteveBHoop
When judging Jayson Tatum’s improvement in making teammates better, it would be a mistake to focus solely on his assist numbers.
Some of the best plays he can make will entail simply moving the ball, cutting and getting it back a pass or two later in finishing position. – 6:50 PM

Mark Murphy @Murf56
Ime Udoka on Jayson Tatum’s triple double potential: “He’s a guy that I feel should get five-plus triple-doubles a year. He’s on pace for that with the way he’s moving the ball.” – 6:47 PM

A. Sherrod Blakely @ASherrodblakely
Why today more than most, reminds @Marc D’Amico fans that @Al Horford matters so much to this team fullcourtpress.bulletin.com/35061672014430…6:39 PM

Chris Forsberg @ChrisForsberg_
Ime Udoka said team remains confident in Aaron Nesmith.
“We told him to take his time, slow down, and play like he did in the summer … With Romeo being out, there’s opportunity for him there. So just got to slow down and take the shots that he always has.” – 6:11 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Raul Neto is OUT tonight with a left shoulder contusion. He was getting up shots today at shootaround and is considered day-to-say – 6:11 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Tonight’s starters vs Boston
Spencer Dinwiddie
Bradley Beal
KCP
Kyle Kuzma
Daniel Gafford – 6:11 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Wes Unseld Jr. said “we’ll see” when it comes to Spencer Dinwiddie playing the second night of the back to back tomorrow against Atlanta.
“We’ll be cautious with his minutes.” – 6:09 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Wes Unseld Jr. says the Wizards will wait and see on whether Spencer Dinwiddie plays tomorrow in the second night of a back-to-back given his ACL recovery. – 6:09 PM

Chris Miller @cmillsnbcs
Raul Neto is OUT tonight vs. Boston (Left shoulder contusion) – 6:07 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Wes Unseld Jr. starts his Celtics pregame talk with a thought for former Washington Bullets GM Bob Ferry, who died today. Lots of family memories between the Unselds and the man who ran the franchise during its most sustained run of excellence. – 6:06 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Wes Unseld Jr. says Raul Neto is OUT tonight with a left shoulder contusion. He is considered day-to-day. – 6:06 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Wizards head coach Wes Unseld Jr. begins his pregame press conference with the news that Bob Ferry, former Bullets player and the GM of their 1978 title team, has passed away. Bob is the father of Danny Ferry. – 6:05 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
We have enough depth so we’re good — it also moves Corey [Kispert] up in the rotation.
– Wes Unseld Jr. on Raul Neto being out – 6:04 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Raul Neto is day-to-day per coach Wes Unseld
He’s out tonight. – 6:03 PM

Marc D’Amico @celtics
Coach Udoka has been impressed with Jayson Tatum’s playmaking and balanced offensive attack: “He’s a guy that I feel should get five-plus triple-doubles a year, and he’s on pace with that the way he’s moving the ball.” – 5:58 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
James Borrego said he wants to see a better effort defensively tonight. Doesn’t think it was up to par in the fourth quarter against the Celtics on Monday. – 5:58 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
On Aaron Nesmith’s early struggles, Ime Udoka said he thinks Nesmith is “playing a little too fast. I think he’s pressing a little bit and rushing things. He needs to slow down some and settle.” – 5:55 PM

John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Al Horford is in, Romeo out tonight.
I asked about Nesmith – Udoka says there’s an opportunity there for him but says Nesmith is pressing and playing fast right now. He needs to slow down – 5:54 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka said that Romeo Langford had a clean MRI, so the team hopes his absence is not a long-term thing. – 5:53 PM

Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Ime Udoka says deciding who the captains are took a backseat during preseason due to Horford and Brown getting COVID and needing to focus on the roster churn. He hasn’t thought about it since early camp, but says he’s more concerned with his players leading than naming a captain. – 5:53 PM

Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
Ime Udoka says Romeo Langford got an MRI and it was nothing serious, so it shouldn’t be a long-term thing. – 5:53 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka said that Boston hasn’t named captains yet. He said it took a backseat when other needs popped up during the preseason. He said right now the Celtics are focused on getting on track vs having designated captains. Udoka said many players can be leaders without captaincy. – 5:53 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Al Horford WILL play for Boston tonight. Romeo Langford is OUT. – 5:52 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka says that Jayson Tatum should get “five+ triple-doubles” per season. Udoka said that’s all part of his improved playmaking. – 5:52 PM

Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Ime Udoka on Aaron Nesmith: “I think he’s pressing a little bit and rushing.” – 5:52 PM

Jay King @ByJayKing
Ime Udoka said the Celtics have not decided on their captains yet. – 5:52 PM

Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Al Horford is in; Romeo Langford us out for #Celtics5:51 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Celtics coach Ime Udoka says Jayson Tatum should get “five-plus” triple-doubles a year, and that he’s on pace to do that with what Udoka is seeing from him so far this season as far as his playmaking goes. – 5:51 PM

Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Ime Udoka says Al Horford is in but Romeo Langford remains out tonight. Also said he expects Jayson Tatum to get at least 5 triple-doubles a season. That’s pretty much everything. – 5:51 PM

Chris Grenham @chrisgrenham
Ime Udoka on Jayson Tatum’s skillset:
“He’s a guy I feel should get 5+ triple-doubles a year.” – 5:51 PM

Chris Forsberg @ChrisForsberg_
Al Horford is back vs. Wizards.
Romeo Langford remains out. – 5:51 PM

Jay King @ByJayKing
Al Horford will play tonight. Romeo Langford still out, per Ime Udoka. – 5:50 PM

Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Romeo Langford remains out tonight. Al Horford will play according to Ime Udoka. – 5:50 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Al Horford will play for Boston tonight. Romeo Langford remains out. – 5:50 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Two reasons why Wizards-Celtics tonight is interesting to me: 1) we saw what happened in Brooklyn, how close are the Wizards to the 2nd tier in the East? 2) J Tatum helped expose their lack of size at the 3 last year, so they added wing defense. How much did they help that cause? – 2:32 PM

James Plowright @British_Buzz
Watched the Boston 4th quarter back, have to say it feels like Boston made some good late adjustments. Full court pressure, intentionally fouling Plumlee, really through Charlotte off their rhythm and slowed the pace, watch for other teams to do the same – 2:01 PM
