This looked nothing like the Boston Celtics' smashing of the Wizards by 20 points three weeks ago.
Wizards big man Nene suffered a left calf strain in the first quarter of Friday's game against the Celtics. After his exit, the team announced he would not return.
Usually when players-only meetings are called the team is reeling like the 2-7 Wizards were a couple seasons ago, not 11-4 going into Friday's games like the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Matchup: Washington Wizards (6-6) at Boston Celtics (8-7)
When: Friday, 7:30 p.m. (TV: CSN, CSNMidatlantic.com via NBC Sports Live Extra)
Yet again, the Wizards are back at the same crossroads at 6-6 that they were at 2-7 two years ago.
