The Washington Wizards are traveling to Boston to play a red-hot Boston Celtics team that currently sits atop the Eastern Conference with an 8-1 record. Washington, on the other hand, has lost two in a row to fall to 2-6.
Their rosters have changed quite a bit over the past few seasons, but the Wizards and Celtics have built a rivalry that surely will still be felt among the fans.
With Isaiah Thomas also making his return to Boston as a starter, there is plenty of game action to pay attention to. Take your Wizards experience to the next level and get involved in the action with NBC Sports Washington's new Predict the Game contest.
'PREDICT THE GAME' HOW TO WATCH
What is this broadcast? Predict the Game is an easy-to-enter, free contest that allows fans to predict various game and player performance outcomes through a series of approximately 12-15 questions per quarter that will appear on-screen during the alternate telecast on NBC Sports Washington Plus. Predict the Game leaderboards will be displayed at select times, and the winner of each contest will be revealed throughout the game and during NBC Sports Washington’s postgame coverage.
Where can I find it? Contest questions and leaderboards will be displayed on NBC Sports Washington Plus (Channel Finder).
The NBC Sports Washington Plus presentation will, for the first time, feature special hosts, who will appear at various times to address Predict the Game participants and provide contest updates, information and results. The enhanced experience will contain the majority of the same video and audio (including announcers) as the primary live-game coverage, which will be available simultaneously on NBC Sports Washington.
How do I win? Fans will earn points for both answering questions (1 point) and correct predictions (1 or 2 points, depending on the question), with the top eligible scorer at the end of each game earning or splitting the $500 prize.
Each quarter will be its own contest, with an entirely new leaderboard starting from scratch, so even if fans miss out on the start of the game there will still be plenty of time to play and win.
Fans must enter Predict the Game, which is open to join throughout the entire game, and submit their predictions at www.nbcsportswashington.com/predict.
