Wizards guard John Wall drained a game-winning three for Washington with just three seconds left in the 92-91 victory, and didn't appreciate the Celtics playing copycat before the game.
In the first quarter, the Celtics led the Wizards 15-0 in transition points, a surprising statistic given just how good Wall is at orchestrating that part of the game.

Isaiah Thomas had one last shot for the win, but his tightly contested, off-balance 3-pointer was off the mark as time expired. For a time, it seemed like the fourth quarter would belong to him like it had on so many other occasions this season. He scored 13 in the period as Washington entered the fourth trailing 69-66.

After Al Horford banked home a 16-foot jumper with 7.7 seconds to play to snap an 89-89 tie, Wall responded while capping a 26-point night in which he had struggled while making only nine of 25 shots.
The Celtics got off to a bad start, going 4 for 17 in the first quarter and not making a field goal over the final 5½ minutes or so.
If the Celtics can limit their turnover total to single digits, then Boston has a real chance of suppressing the Wizards from going on another one of their gargantuan scoring runs.
