After an out-of-character showing against Cleveland, the Wizards will look to re-establish their style of play in their home opener Saturday night as they host the Boston Celtics at Verizon Center.
They’ll have to make at least one new adjustment, though, as Kevin Seraphin will be back in the mix after missing three weeks with a strained right calf muscle. Seraphin won’t start, but however many minutes he sees off the bench will give the Wizards a low-post presence once again.
Coach Randy Wittman will use the same starting lineup as he did in the season opener, with Bradley Beal, A.J. Price, Emeka Okafor, Trevor Ariza and Trevor Booker. The Celtics will start Rajon Rondo, Courtney Lee, Jared Sullinger, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
