"Quad God" Carsen Edwards scores career-high 18 points in Celtics 140-133 shootout win over Wizards

Make no mistake - this contest was an absolute shootout, with the Celtics walking away with the 140-133 win over Washington. Bradley Beal was high man for the Wizards with 44 points. Rookie Rui Hachimura notched 21 points, while former-Celtic Isaiah Thomas started at point guard and came away with 18 points and seven assists. On the Celtics side of things, it is starting to look like Jim McIntyre's very-early projection of Carsen Edwards could come true, and it is great to see my "Quad God" moniker for Carsen may stick - thanks to @TaylorCSnow.


Kemba Walker poured in a team-high 25 points, and the Jay Team combined for 45 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. Jayson Tatum was 9-of-20 from the field, coming back from his horrendous 1-of-18 outing versus the Mavericks on Monday. But the high point of the night may have been supplied by rookie Carsen Edwards who came off the bench to score a career-high 18 points on 7-of-12 from the field and 4-of-5 on 3-pointers. Carsen also managed four rebounds and three assists, showing that he could very well become a complete player in this League.

Both Rob Williams and Daniel Theis were out of action last night with injuries, but we saw both Enes Kanter and Vincent Poirier in action at the center position. With Gordon Hayward out for roughly six weeks following hand surgery, it is starting to look like Edwards could play a significant role off the bench for Boston. With that in mind, take this opportunity to take a quick look at the @DHobeika video of Edwards' highlights below. It is delightful.

    1. As you are well aware, great quads are important - for looks and practical purposes. "Hungry thighs". That's why I don't neglect leg workouts.
