Celtics lose to the Wizards 95-94 in OT

The Boston Celtics didn’t play with the usual starting lineup, giving their second unit some extended minutes and letting their top players get some much needed rest. Sadly the result was a 95-94 overtime loss to the Washington Wizards. With Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo watching from the bench, Celtics coach Doc Rivers made it clear that a fresh crew ready for the postseason was more important than using up energy to try to climb one rank in the standings.


Jeff Green scored 20 points and tied his career high with 15 rebounds in his first Celtics start. Glen Davis also had 20 points. Jermaine, who needed the playing time after missing much of the season with a sore knee, had 15 points and 13 rebounds both season highs for him. Delonte West had 11 points, five assists and five rebounds before leaving with a sprained right ankle in the third quarter, the same injury that cost him eight games earlier in the season.
