🏀Celtics: Hold off on that manicure, it’s play-in tournament time. The C’s host the Washington Wizards tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET with a trip to the playoffs on the line. These squads faced each other three times during the regular season, with the C’s winning two of the three (the last back on February 28th). But, the Wizards are one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now.

  • And if they can’t, at least they’ll have another chance on Thursday. The loser of tomorrow’s game will face the winner of the Eastern Conference’s No. 9 vs. No. 10 seed matchup. Confusing, right? So let’s just get the dub tomorrow.

🏒Bruins: Mondays don’t have to suck when you’re from Title Town. Spend your afternoon grabbing your vaccine and a photo with one of the Patriots’ six Super Bowl trophies, then watch the Bruins bounce back from their heartbreaking Game 1 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals. Puck drops tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET.

⚾️🥎On the diamond: The bad news? The Red Sox couldn’t pull out the weekend sweep, falling 6–5 to the LA Angels yesterday. The good news? BU softball got it done on the dirt, winning their third straight Patriot League title and advancing to their 11th NCAA softball tourney. Diamonds really are a girl’s best friend.
