What you need to know:

  • The Celtics won an Eastern Conference-best 53 games last season before falling to the Cavaliers in the conference finals.
  • The Wizards bring back their core of John Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter Jr., all eager to challenge the Cavs and Celtics for supremacy in the East.
