Wall leads Wizards to National Basketball Association win over Celtics

With Game 7 on Monday, both teams will be fighting for the right to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Conference Finals. "Seems like it was meant to be". Otto Porter Jr added 20 points while John Wall and Markieff Morris scored 18 each. "All day and night I watched Paul Pierce vs. LeBron James and how special that was, two superstars going at it, guarding each other and it was a historic game".

The crowd went into a frenzy after the shot as Wall started into the stands with his chest out and his arms flexed, taking in the moment. The "Boston" for 27 points scored Thomas and Bradley. When John Wall hit a buzzer-beating three pointer in Game 6 to lift the Wizards to victory, the pressure is now on the Celtics as the series returns to Boston. Washington countered with Beal draining a shot from three-point range and Wall tying the game at 87-all by hitting two free throws with 41 seconds left.

While Thomas is anxious for the opportunity, one thing he says he won't be is nervous.

But Bradley could do nothing defensively to stop Wall on the winning shot, coming off an inbound play that was created to get Beal the ball. "It was on my mind throughout the game that I didn't want them to come here with all black and call it a funeral at (my) home".

But as it has been the case since the start of the year, the Wizards bench could not be trusted.

The Boston Celtics can advance to their first conference final since the 2011-12 season with a victory here.

Game 2: Spurs (0-1) at Warriors (1-0) 9:00 p.m. ET - It will be hard for San Antonio to focus and bounce back after squandering a 25-point lead Sunday, and losing star forward Kawhi Leonard in the process.

With the series tied at 3 games a piece, it is important to remember that the home team has won every game this series thus far, . Coincidentally, his two best have come against Wizards in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

In January a Wizards team showed up in Boston wearing all-black as a motivational device and they left Bean-Town with a win.

Wizards: Had lost seven consecutive elimination games at home. They're going to have to match the intensity from Thomas and the Celtics if they hope to extend their season. We didn't think that. Totals 32-79 16-18 91.

The league's report noted that Oubre's foul was "whistled with approximately 2.7 seconds on the clock but the clock runs to 1.7 seconds before stopping".

The Celtics All-Star will get his first chance to do the same on Monday night when Boston hosts the Washington Wizards with a trip to the Eastern Conference finals at stake. Boston also connected on 11 three-pointers, including 8 of 13 in the second half. All 11 meetings this season (four in regular-season and seven postseason) were claimed by the home team.
