Brad Stevens spoke to the media after the Celtics’ practice today. He said that Robert Williams will be a game-day decision tomorrow, but everyone else is ready to go. Jaylen Brown is still out after undergoing season-ending wrist surgery, but the rest of the team feels good.
He was asked how the team can prepare for the challenges ahead with the Wizards game tomorrow night. Stevens spoke about their ability to play in different ways and really pick up the pace. The Wizards have been rolling since the All-Star break.
The Celtics are 2-1 against the Wizards on the season, but all three games were close and hard-fought. Washington is 6-4 in their last 10 games, and star point guard Russell Westbrook has been leading the charge.
Westbrook recently passed Oscar Robinson for the most triple-doubles in NBA history, and he averaged 11.7 assists per game, the most since John Stockton in 1994.
