April 9th, 2010 might have been the low point of the Celtics season. On that night, the Washington Wizards came into the TD Garden and waxed the Celtics 106-96. In that game, Wizards forward Andray Blatche scored 31 points while embarrassing Kevin Garnett and making him look very bad.
That night might’ve been on the Celtics minds heading into last night, as Garnett and the Celtics extracted revenge with a 114-83 waxing of the Wizards. Blatche was limited to 10 points, while KG scored 18 points in 23 minutes.
