According to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, the Wizards will come to the arena dressed in all black for Tuesday’s game against the Celtics. Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal apparently came up with the idea, which is supposed to represent the idea of a funeral.

Tuesday’s game in Washington will be the first matchup between the two teams since Jae Crowder and John Wall got into each other’s faces at the end of a 117-108 Celtics victory earlier this month (video here). Wizards forward Otto Porter Jr. also accused the Celtics of playing dirty after the incident.
