Here are the five best plays or moments from the Wizards' 111-103 win over the Celtics on Christmas Day...
1. Kelly Oubre, Jr. provided a huge lift for the Wizards off their bench with 16 points and five rebounds. He had nine points in the first half alone.
On this play he stole the ball and found Bradley Beal for a breakaway slam. It was moments after Celtics fans booed him when he checked in:

2. The Wizards held Kyrie Irving (20 points, five assists) almost five points below his scoring average, but he did have one of the best plays of the game. It was vintage Kyrie: crazy dribbling capped with a tough finish at the rim that he made look easy?

3. John Wall also had himself a game. He put up 21 points and 14 assists, including this one to Beal for another nice dunk:

4. Wall made several key plays to help seal the victory, including this one where he used a hesitation dribble to get past rookie Jayson Tatum for an easy layup. It was a pure veteran move by a four-time All-Star on a 19-year-old still learning the tricks of the trade:

*Tatum should take angle & give some ground as he was not very accurate from mid range vs very tight
*Trunk integrity collapses a bit forward on decel but he is able to still control/balance & accelerate @bballbreakdown pic.twitter.com/gPE8IjS04W
5. This game ended much better than the last time the Wizards played in Boston and Wall was in a great mood. He wished Celtics fans a Merry Christmas several times as he walked off the court:

That's Grade A gloating right there. The rivalry is still alive.
