John Wall [1] had 13 points and 10 assists in leading the Wizards [2] to a 118-92 rout of the visiting Celtics [3] on Wednesday night as Washington clinched a playoff berth for the first time since 2008.

Marcin Gortat hit 10-of-13 shots and finished with 22 points for the Wizards, and Bradley Beal shot 7-for-8 and scored 19 points.

Jared Sullinger scored 25 points for the Celtics [3], who lost their sixth straight overall and 11th straight on the road.

The C’s, playing without Avery Bradley [4] (strained right Achilles) never led, falling behind 19-4 five minutes into the game. The Wizards shot 61 percent in the first half en route to a 57-46 lead at the break, then outscored Boston 32-16 in the third quarter as the Celtics made just 4-of-18 shots with six turnovers in that period.

“We laid an egg,” C’s coach Brad Stevens [5] said. “We didn’t provide any fight tonight.”
