Shorthanded Wizards, Celtics meet up in Washington

WASHINGTON -- A pair of teams that played short-handed last time out meet when the Boston Celtics visit the Washington Wizards Wednesday night in search of their seventh straight win.

The Celtics (16-10) overcame a handful of absences and utilized their impressive depth to post a 113-100 win against the New Orleans Pelicans Monday night. Boston was without Kylie Irving, Gordon Hayward, Al Horford, Aron Baynes, and Guerschon Yabusele due to various ailments.

"We're not going to play perfect," Celtics coach Brad Stevens told the Boston Globe. "We never are. But when you have a lot of guys missing, we just have to kind of stay with it -- even if it's not going our way -- until it does."
