Packed into the middle of Sunday's triple-header of NBA Playoffs action will be game 4 of the Boston Celtics vs. Washington wizards series. Things took a dramatic turn in Game 3, where the Wizards captured a victory to make it a 2-1 series in Boston's favor. They'll try to get another home win on Sunday to tie the series at two games apiece. Here's a look at the latest playoffs matchup preview including odds, time, TV channel and how to watch a live stream of the Celtics vs. Wizards Game 4.

Boston vs. Washington Game 4

In Game 3, tempers started to flare between the two teams. In an incident in the second quarter, Washington's Kelly Oubre Jr. was knocked to the ground on a screen set by Kelly Olynyk of the Celtics. That caused Oubre to take exception to the bump and rush over to shove Olynyk with a referee in the middle. While the referee didn't hit the ground, Oubre Jr's conduct earned him a one-game suspension.

That means the Wizards' bench player is out for Game 4 and other reserves will need to step up.

Washington will still look to its two main stars, Bradley Beal and John Wall, to get another home win today. In Game 3, the pair went for just 35 combined points, with Wall scoring 24 of those. The duo has scored as much as 70 or more before, so their scoring output is certainly one that could explode at any time.

Marcin Gortat continues to play solid games, as he is a double-double monster. In Game 3 he had 13 points to go with 16 boards. Otto Porter Jr. and Bojan Bogdanovic had 19 points each, so look for these two to get involved more with Oubre out of the lineup.

The home team will be 4.5-point favorites to win in today's matchup. The Wizards are also -185 favorites on the moneyline while the Celtics will be +165 underdogs. For the over/under points total in this game, a number of 215.5 points for the game was the latest as of this report.
