Boston Celtics bailed out by Canadian Kelly Olynyk in Game 7 win

Boston Celtics bailed out by Canadian Kelly Olynyk in Game 7 win

When the Boston Celtics beat the Washington Wizards 115-105 in Game 7 of their series, they most likely merely secured their spot as the team that LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers will beat on their way to their third straight NBA Finals.

Isaiah Thomas top scored with 29 points, adding 12 assists, while Kelly Olynyk registered a post-season best of 26.

Kelly Olynyk was a vital contributor with 26 points off the bench as the Celtics set up a meeting with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Celtics center Kelly Olynyk, who before Game 7 was widely known for his dust-up with Wizards forward Kelly Oubre in Game 3, stole the show in the fourth quarter of a tightly contested battle.

The Wizards can feel that they have better talent than the Boston Celtics, but only one team is advancing to the conference finals to face the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The future may be bright for Boston, but the cruel reality for the team's present day is the team is about to get swept.

When their season ended, the Washington Wizards walked over to the Boston Celtics with white towels draped over their shoulders. The only aging piece of the team's core is Horford, Thomas should continue his rise into the game's elite players, Jaylen Brown is a great talent and the team should get another great draft pick courtesy of the league's worst Brooklyn Nets. Second-seeded Cleveland, 8-0 in the playoffs, took the season series 3-1.

Nick Ritchie scored the tiebreaking goal late in the second period, and the Anaheim Ducks roared back from an early two-goal deficit to even the Western Conference finals with a 5-3 victory over the Nashville Predators in Game 2 on Sunday night. The Wizards had all of the momentum, Bradley Beal was on his way to a 38-point night, and it looked like the C's were on their way to a second-round playoff exit. The play resulted in an injury to Love that forced him from the game.

The 12 assists were a playoff career-high for Thomas as part of his third career playoff double-double and first during the playoffs this year.

The two teams had won three games apiece coming into the clinching 7th game, and Washington took a 55-53 lead at the half.

Mr Rosenstein said, although he was personally fond of Mr Comey, "I thought it was appropriate to seek a new leader". The Justice Department on Friday issued the text of Rosenstein's opening remarks for the briefings on Capitol Hill.

Thomas is averaging 25.4 points per game in the postseason, and his teammates have picked him up when he's needed it, too.

The reason the Celtics advanced was simple: They had more in reserve. They won all four games at home in the series against Washington. "The regular season for them is just kind of like, let's get through it". "They are going to give them a hell of a fight, and it is going to be an interesting series for you guys to watch". The players from both teams hugged, their new bitter rivalry deferring to mutual respect.

"It was ridiculous, I don't think this building reached that level, since I've been here at least", Brad Stevens said of the TD Garden crowd.

As the series went on, Beal's play seemed to get better and better.

    The Ottawa power play, despite chances, again proved futile, at times so much so that the crowd loudly booed the final moments. A late goal by Maatta on Anderson, and certainly one he'd like to have back, gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead after the first.
