Wiz to face Celtics after beating Hornets for 8th in East

WASHINGTON (AP) It wasn't until about 30 minutes before tipoff that Bradley Beal told coach Scott Brooks he could play for the Washington Wizards in their regular-season finale.

And it wasn't until the second half Sunday against the Charlotte Hornets that Beal really got going in his return from a three-game absence with a strained left hamstring.

The Wizards finished eighth in the Eastern Conference standings and set up a play-in matchup against the No. 7 Boston Celtics by coming back to beat Charlotte 115-110 as Beal poured in 20 of his 25 points after halftime.
