Celtics vs Wizards live score, updates, NBA play-in tournament highlights

Tuesday night’s NBA play-in game between the Celtics and the Wizards features two teams that finished the regular season on very different scores.

Boston saw all hope of a deep playoffs evaporate when Jaylen Brown underwent left wrist surgery in the final week of the 2020-21 campaign. The Celtics had already stumbled down the home stretch even with Brown available, so it’s hard to imagine a path to the Eastern Conference Finals now that their All-Star forward is out until next season.

Washington, meanwhile, entered the play-in tournament winning 15 of its last 20 games. The Wizards are led by the dynamic duo of Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook, who have averaged a triple-double for the fourth time in five seasons.

Will the Wizards continue their hot streak and get into the first round? Or will the Celtics snag the No.7 seed?
