Wall's late 3 leads Wiz past Celtics 92-91, forces Game 7

Wall's late 3 leads Wiz past Celtics 92-91, forces Game 7

Luckily for them, the Wizards made three of their last four after starting an unfathomable 2-of-20 from distance.

Following 3-pointers from Thomas and Horford, Bradley's alley-oop dunk in the closing seconds sent Boston into halftime leading 42-41 despite shooting 35 percent from the field.

After having a tied game with 14.1 seconds left, Al Horford banked a hard angled shot from the baseline to give the Celtics a two-point lead. And they have their superstar point guard to thank for (at least temporarily) saving their season.

The hosts have won all 10 games between the Wizards and Celtics this season.

"All we asked for was one more game", Wall said, "and we got it". The largest lead in an action-packed fourth quarter was five points, and that shattered in a hurry.

Boston was up 87-82, but did not hold on.

The Wizards blitzed Thomas off a screen.

Trump warns ousted Federal Bureau of Investigation chief against talking to media, threatens 'tapes'
Trump has said that Comey asked for the meeting and that during dinner, Comey told him he was not the subject of an investigation. He loves being talked about, and the press briefings are basically the closest thing the White House has to its own TV show.

"Keef's [Markieff Morris] minutes were tremendous all game long", Brooks said. I had nowhere to go.

Besides, if you lose, who really cares how people respond? Their trap, they took away the next pass as well.

After the final buzzer sounded and Game 7 was ensured, John Wall leaped on the scorer's table at the Verizon Center and exulted. "I still haven't heard anybody talk about it, so I don't even know what the deal is". Out of the timeout, John Wall was looking for Beal, but the Celtics covered him well.

Washington's Bradley Beal had 33 points and Wall scored 26 despite shooting 9 of 25 from the field. Coach Brad Stevens later highlighted some of the main points of emphasis during a conference call with the media.

"They're just trying to be like us, man". But hats off to him and them. Washington won the game 92-91 in what was mainly a defensive battle and offensive struggle for both teams.

He paused, grinned, then added: "That's why I was here before all of you". If that counted as a sin, it was because they failed to own the decision. He was facing elimination; it wasn't another team's fashion decisions providing his edge. "But John stepped up and made a big shot".

Looking to repay the favor, Boston went all-black entering this game.

But what this title victory also revealed were some spectacular numbers that the blues managed to put up. It was something I was thinking about (on Thursday). "So it's important to celebrate now".

"The mood right now?"

"When I played", said Washington coach Scott Brooks, "if I missed two shots, I didn't think I was going to make the next shot". It speaks for itself. "They make it tough to move, so we have to do a better job with that. We had a lot of other mistakes, and we still had a chance to win".

"We put ourselves in position to win the game, " Al Horford said calmly.

The team from Boston had 5 points lead coming into the last minute, but they just didn't know how to close the game. In the tunnel, as Smith watched on as the Wizards forced a Game 7, Morris gives him a (little) butt tap heading back. "I was the first one in the gym too, so I didn't see nobody else wearing it", he said with a shrug. Asked if it felt like poetic justice for the series to go the distance, Wall and Beal nodded for several seconds.

Western Conference finals Game 1: Spurs at Warriors, 3:30 p.m. ET - The Spurs are banged up, but still had no problems dispatching the Rockets on Thursday.

Hours earlier, the Celtics star had recalled Pierce's message. "Honestly, I did", Thomas said. "I feel like that's so true".
