The Wizards talked the talk before their highly anticipated rematch with the Celtics on Tuesday night.
The game, like their previous meeting in Boston, was a chippy affair. The two teams tussled throughout the game, and Celtics guard Marcus Smart even got into it with one of his own coaches.
But the Wizards did walk the walk, defeating the Celtics for their 14th consecutive home win.
But the frustration is clearly still there. Following the game, an unnamed Celtics player took out his frustration at a wall in the Verizon Center.
With the win, the Wizards moved to 25-20 on the season, while the Celtics fell to 24-15.
The two teams will meet again in Washington, D.C. on Monday, March 20.
