Good morning, everyone!
I hope you are ready for some early-afternoon NBA action today, as the Boston Celtics host the Washington Wizard at 1 p.m. in the TD Garden. It’s funny: both of the teams I cover for Fansided are in action today at the Garden: first, the Celtics, and then later tonight the Buffalo Sabres, who take on the Bruins at 7 p.m.
Why don’t I cover the Bruins, you ask? Who cares – this is an NBA site!
Onto the links!

Bad news for the Brooklyn Nets, who apparently have lost Brook Lopez for the year. [Sporting News] Good news for Boston, though, as Lopez terrorized them two weeks ago.
