Isaiah Thomas back in lineup as Celtics face Washington

"He's feeling a lot better", said coach Brad Stevens in his pregame media session.

Celtics guard Avery Bradley acknowledged that they should have made getting Horford the ball a bigger priority in the fourth, especially how well he had played through the first three quarters of the game.

Let's take a closer look at the matchup. In the 123-108 beat down, the Wizards backed up their talk and clearly got the Celtics attention.

"It was like we were playing 1-on-1 basketball", Bradley told reporters after the loss. But we're playing a very good team (tonight). Keef Morris has missed the last two games for the Wizards with an illness and his status for tonight is also unknown. And worry about Washington. "And if we do play well, we'll have a chance to win". "It's our job to make sure we're prepared mentally and physically".

Dorsey Sends Rams To End Of Rhode
After Dylan Ennis' jawing earned the Ducks a warning, Brooks received a first-half technical - and Altman didn't like it one bit. OR only had Dorsey and Brooks in double-figures though Bell led the way in rebounding with 12 and also had two blocked shots.

"I don't think so", said Stevens. "We probably got away from running some of the offensive stuff we ran earlier in the game". Marcus Smart is expected to start in his place.
