On Fan Appreciation Night the Washington Wizards gave their loyal fans a little bit more than they paid for in the way of an exciting overtime victory over the playoff bound Celtics. Boston sat out Shaq, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo and instead went with a lineup that featured Delonte West, Big Baby, Jeff Green, Von Wafer and Jermaine O'Neal. The end result was a 95-94 Wizards win that locked the Celtics into 3rd place in the Eastern Conference Playoffs and gave the Wizards their 23rd win of the season.
The Wiz kids have one more game remaining against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Ohio on Wednesday.
The question for the fans is, would you rather see them lose in the standings or lose what could be a better draft position?
After seeing what happened last year, give me the win and something to build on in the summer.....
Enjoy the game as I saw it.
