Wizards 123, Celtics 108: Washington put some pressure on itself after electing to wear all black to Tuesday's game. Riding an unstoppable Bradley Beal in the fourth quarter, the Wizards tore open a game they led comfortably for most of the night. After some flare-ups in recent meetings, the two teams were largely on their best behavior. Beal finished with 31 points, while John Wall added 27. The Celtics rarely offered resistance and never made a sustained charge because of their lackluster defense.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Isaiah Thomas has now scored at least 25 points in each of his last eight games. The last Celtics player to do that in eight consecutive games within one season was Larry Bird in 1987-88.

Bulls win it 100-92. Butler and Wade finish with a combined 41 points. Doug McDermott and Cris Felicio each chip in with 12 points off the bench.

Cris Felicio having another solid game for the Bulls. He's got 11 points and 9 rebounds in 18 minutes. Bulls have a lot of holes on the roster, but Felicio has proven to be a solid rotation player.

Jimmy Butler has 14 points and is 6/6 from the free throw line. He starts the fourth quarter on the bench, but Bulls will be going to him a lot down the stretch. These are the times Butler has shined all season.

Nogueira delivers putback Jam

With time winding down in the second quarter, Lucas Nogueira rises to follow up Kyle Lowry's miss with a two-handed slam. But the Spurs lead the Raptors 63-54 early in the third quarter.

Bulls need to do a better job of staying in front of Serge Ibaka in the second half. The Magic big man is 3-for-3 from beyond the arc and already has 13 points. He is stretching the Bulls' defense out.

Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer 

Doug McDermott playing with some confidence tonight. He's 4/4 from beyond the arc and doesn't have any hesitation. Bulls need to keep looking for him like they did in Memphis.

Wall beats buzzer after flashy move

John Wall dribbles behind his back beautifully and then hits a shot at the first-quarter buzzer. The Wizards now lead the Celtics 49-42 in the second quarter.


Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer 

Michael Carter-Williams has gone from the starting lineup for the past two weeks to out of the rotation. Jerian Grant had little impact in eight early minutes. Bulls looked sloppy in the first quarter.

LeBron James @KingJames

ESPN Stats and Information  

Celtics PG Isaiah Thomas has scored at least 20 points in each of his last 27 games. If he does it again tonight he would tie Kevin McHale (1986-87) for the 2nd-longest such streak within one season by a Celtics player, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. John Havlicek holds the team record with 40 straight 20-point games in 1971-72.
