Washington Wizards

Good: The Wizards have been a team that has seemingly finally gotten it together. Bradley Beal is fun and exciting to root for while John Wall is the superstar everyone has been waiting on. Let’s be honest, D.C. sports fans haven’t exactly had the best of  luck recently, so this one can be theirs.

Boston Celtics

Good: The team has been built with patience and intelligence and that’s commendable. Isaiah Thomas exudes confidence in his play style, as though he always knows where the ball is going. Also, prior to the Celtics’ game 2 win, Stevens put the lineup of Isaiah Thomas, Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, Avery Bradley and Al Horford on the court, making for what was very dominant game play.
