The wizards pulled off a tough comeback win in double overtime to beat the celtics 124-125. The Wizards were down by 20 in the first half, but pulled it back in the second and were down by three with 5.5 seconds left after the ref called the ball out of bounds on a celtics player. They passed it in to Otto Porter who drove in and instead of taking a wide open layup, he passed it out to Jodie Meeks who hit the three to tie the game.
In overtime, the wizards came out hot, taking a 7 point lead but the celtics had a comeback to bring it within two points. On the final play of the game with celtics ball, down by two Jayson Tatum drives in, gets fouled and makes the layup. He ties the game up but misses the free throw to send it to double OT.
In double OT the game is pretty close throughout the whole time but Wizards go up by 1 with celtics ball for the last possession. Jayson Tatum gets a good look at a three pointer, but misses and the wizards hold on for the win.
