The Wizards lost, 100-94, in overtime last night to the Celtics, but this game-tying dunk by Chris Singleton to send them into extra time had fans — and Kevin Garnett — paying attention.
“I saw KG under the basket and I had him before in the fourth quarter and I went in and missed the layup. That was like, ‘I got to go in there harder.’ I made the move and finished the play,” Singleton explained to Michael Lee. “It feels good and we should’ve had that. If we didn’t have those turnovers at end, [Celtics fans] should’ve been [quiet] the whole fourth quarter and overtime.”
Garnett showed his frustration in a very weird and profanity-laced postgame interview. Celtics fans were also not happy, if this tweet from Lee is any indication.
Frustrated BOS fan sitting behind me can’t believe C’s are only up 4 with 5 mins left in 4thQ. “C’mon! It’s the [bleeping] #wizards!”
