The Celtics have been sliding for a couple weeks now, having won just three of their last 11 games. Garnett has missed the last eight games, while Pierce has taken off two of the last three. With just six games remaining before the postseason, Boston needs both players back to right the ship.
Boston stands at 39-37 and in a largely different position than the 29-47 Wizards. Still, this game is stocked with intrigue as both teams have something to prove.
