Wizards hold off Celtics reserves late: It didn’t come easy for the Wizards about Boston’s deep reserves but Washington managed to come away with their first win of the Orlando bubble on Thursday, snapping Boston’s four-game winning streak. Javonte Green had a team-high 23 points for the C’s who rested all of their starters and Marcus Smart in the seeding games finale. Thomas Bryant had a game-high 26 points for the Wizards who snapped a seven-game losing streak in the bubble by holding the C’s to 13 points in an ugly fourth quarter for both teams. Semi Ojeleye (13 points) was the only other Celtic in double figures as Boston’s offense sputtered without their main shot creators, making just 40 percent of their attempts from the field. The Celtics finish their seeding game slate with a 5-3 record.
