Prediction

The Wizards team is looking good for this year with Porzingis in the lineup but they will face one of the best teams in the league who have been on fire so far. The Celtics had a great season as they made it to the Finals and with the additions of Brogdon and Gallinari the team will have more diversity in offense. They lost only 13 games at home last season so it will be tough to beat them there again. Take the Celtics to win the first game of the season.
