Jayson Tatum and Bradley Beal dueled early, before Jaylen Brown bolstered the Celtics ahead in tandem with his teammate while Russell Westbrook struggled alongside Beal. Beal ultimately erased a 26 point deficit in the third quarter, where he produced 21 points on his scoring and assists and reached 37 points before the end of three. The Wizards broke back within four, but Beal only scored five points in the fourth and key Westbrook miscues cost Washington the win, with Tacko Fall and Payton Pritchard flushing critical late buckets before Brown sealed the game from three. The Celtics won their fourth straight to move into the two seed at 7-3 behind Philadelphia.
