His numbers have been down a bit in March - 26.4 points, 4.6 assists per game - but he still remains of the most explosive scorers in the league on a night-to-night basis. He picked up the slack with Isaiah Thomas out as he took 16 shots, the most in one game he has taken in over two months.

Isaiah Thomas is expected to return to the lineup Monday night in a game that could get a little chippy.

Despite the loss, Horford was the best player on the floor on Sunday, posting a 41.6 net rating and a 35.41 nERD score.

With a victory, the Celtics can distance themselves from the Wizards for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Boston is 21-7 when it has its preferred starting five of Thomas, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, Al Horford, and Amir Johnson together.

United Kingdom to trigger Brexit on 29 March, starting two years of talks
In London triggering Article 50 became a political battle cry for Brexiters anxious about backtracking from leaving the EU. The developments come as an independent think tank warned today that up to 15 new bills could be needed to deliver Brexit.

It seemed that the Celtics gravitated away from doing the things that helped them pull ahead by as many as 13 points, chief among them was playing nearly exclusively through Horford who also had eight rebounds, six assists and two blocked shots along with his 27 points. "I know it's a big game for us". I did a lot of treatment in order to be able to play tonight. He had signed a four-year contract worth $94 million with the Grizzlies in the off-season but has averaged only 6.2 points in 34 games this season, nagged all season by knee injuries. The Wizards are just 1.5 games behind the Celtics and out to prove that they are a force to be reckoned with. The forward/center scored a season-high 27 points against the Philadelphia 76ers in a losing effort.

Somehow the Sixers are going to win, like, 28 games this season despite missing Embiid for 2/3 of the season and Simmons and Bayless the whole year.

"I think they remember that probably, [so] no", Stevens said. We just did some different looks. Marcus Smart has started in place of Thomas for Boston, while Jason Smith has filled in for Morris for the Wizards. Join the Chowder and Champions team!
