While the home team has won ever game between these two Eastern rivals this season, let's just hope that Game 7 is as exciting as Game 6 ended up being. He had to just be better than Thomas who had 27 points but it took 24 shots.
A matchup between Cleveland and Boston would be the first between the two since the Eastern Conference opening round in 2015 when the Cavaliers swept the Celtics in four games.
With the lead stretched to seven, Washington's bench came in and blew the lead. The Wizards turned to Beal on their next opportunity, who would bank in a shot near the cylinder with 28.7 seconds left.
Thomas finished this one with 27 points and 7 assists, while Avery Bradley once again performed very well with 27 points shooting 10 from 18 from the field. If it is Washington, the Cavs will host Game 1.
John Wall provided that pleasure, with a game-winning shot, and the closest game of this series was ended with a home team's thrilling victory. Like games past, Washington felt like they weren't getting the calls and at times in the third quarter, it got into their heads. But Washington could not take full advantage, leading only 22-17 after that period.
The Wizards continued to hang around though.
The report also revealed that the Wizards had two missed calls go against them in the final minute Friday.
John Wall started the game 1/11, but ended up making eight of his last 16 shots, including that game-winner. They were poor from three-point range (20.8%) and bad from the foul line (61.9%). The Celtics scored 6 straight to lead 58-52 with 5:14 left.
The Celtics had a chance to steal the game back from the Wizards, but Isaiah Thomas' 3-point heave bounced off the backboard and Wall was the hero. Beal would answer on the other end.
Boston's Al Horford knock down what looked to be a potential game victor with 7 seconds to play to give the Celtics an 91-89 lead. Wall ended up with the ball in his hands and hit a three over Bradley to give the Wizards a 92-91 lead.
Game seven is in Boston on Monday night. The victor will be decided in Boston on Monday evening.
A whole second more, actually. Of course, it came down to the most physically gifted player on the court in Wall to deliver the dagger to the Celtics from the Wizards.
When it comes down to crunch time, those percentages skyrocket, just as they did during Friday night's fourth quarter. He may have struggled out of the gates, but Wall put together another clutch performance in these playoffs.
