Celtics vs. Wizards dwell rating, updates, highlights from the NBA play-in event

The NBA play-up tournament on Tuesday evening between Celtics and Wizards consists of two teams that ended the regular season with very different grades.

Hopes for a deep playoff run faded in Boston when Jaylen Brown underwent left wrist surgery in the final week of the 2020-21 campaign. The Celtics had already stumbled on the final stretch even though Brown was available. Hence, it is difficult to imagine a way back to the Eastern Conference finals as their all-star striker is out until next season.

Washington, meanwhile, got into the play-in tournament by winning 15 of its last 20 games. The Wizards are led by the dynamic duo Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook, who averaged a triple-double for the fourth time in five seasons.

Will the wizards continue their hot phase and advance to the first round? Or will the Celtics grab the # 7 seed?
