Washington Wizards Rivalries

The Celtics have a single main rivalry, and that’s against the Celtics.

Fans of the Wizards will tell you how much they hate the Boston franchise!

It all started in January 2016, when Jae Crowder received a technical foul in the very final minute of the Celtics’ 119-117 victory in Washington.

Apparently, coach Randy Wittman exchanged some words with Crowder, with the first one calling the second one “soft.”

And, things have never been the same for these two franchises since then.

In fact, it’s of notice that the Wizards always play their best hoops vs. Boston, no matter how they played the game before the one against a Celtics meeting.
