Surging Wizards host rival Celtics

WASHINGTON -- The Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards are among the better teams in the Eastern Conference. They also form one of the more random and heated rivalries in recent NBA history.

Despite no clear reason for tension, the two sides have been involved in several altercations over the past two seasons. Tuesday's clash comes less than two weeks after a postgame showdown on the court between Wizards guard John Wall and Celtics forward Jae Crowder moments after Boston's 117-108 win.

The matchup also comes as Washington continues its surge. The Wizards (24-20) have won eight of 10, including Monday's 109-99 road victory against the Charlotte Hornets, plus 13 straight at home. While Boston is 7-3 over its last 10 games, the Celtics (26-17) have dropped two in a row.
