Boston Continues War With Wizards Thursday

Share

Boston, Massachusetts - Boston Celtics has mastered winning the game on their home court by beating the Washington Wizards last Thursday with a score of 123-101, grabbing a 3-2 lead in the second playoff National Basketball Association games. Horford, who of course spurned the Wizards this offseason, shot 8-9 for 19 points, with 6 rebounds, 7 assists, and 3 blocks.

The Celtics are led by guard Isaiah Thomas, who averaged 28.9 points per game in the regular season, while the Wizards are led by guard John Wall, who averaged 23.1 ppg.

After the San Antonio Spurs closed out their series against the Houston Rockets on the road in emphatic fashion, the Boston Celtics will look to do the same tonight as they hit the road for Game 6 against the Washington Wizards.

Leave it to Markieff Morris to explain this Eastern Conference matchup between the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics, a series lacking symmetry and any trace of predictability.

"Next game I might drop 40". The Celtics found themselves down double digits after the first quarter in three of the previous four games, and they led by only four points after the opening quarter of Game 4, a game they wound up losing by 19 thanks to a terrible start to the second half. He did just about everything, which is what we've grown accustomed to seeing this postseason.

"I guess that's how I've got to play", he said.

NOTES: Celtics G Isaiah Thomas was fined $25,000 by the National Basketball Association for "directing inappropriate language toward a fan" in Washington during Game 4. "We've got to come out desperate, so to speak".

Bradley eclipses previous playoff-high of 24 points.in the first half. "We're a team, and it's going to take a team effort to be able to beat the Washington Wizards".

Currently, their second-round playoff series is tied 2-2 with each team winning both their home games so far.

Avery Bradley led the scoring for Boston with 29 points to make sure Washington need to win game six at home at the Verizon Centre on Friday to keep alive hopes of facing the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals. The Celtics bigs outplayed the Wizards bigs and though Marcin Gortat still grabbed 11 boards, he was ineffective for much of the game. With Wall on the court in the playoffs against Boston, Washington scores 21.8 points off turnovers and 19.6 fast-break points per 100 possessions.

"Um, I still hear my name ringing in my head because that's all I heard when I was on the court, but I was just going out there to play", Oubre told reporters, according to The Washington Post.

Bradley averaged a career-high 16.3 points per game this past regular season, shooting 46 percent from the field and 39 percent beyond the arc. But they couldn't get the stops they needed to put much of a dent in the Boston lead.

Hey, Bradley Beal, why does the host come out on top every time? "You've got to be prepared for anything". "He (Bradley) was the key to this game". If Wizards gets the victory, the seventh game will happen, and the victor will face Cavaliers next Wednesday. "I want to go out there and give my all". Some of this was because they were able to get the Wizards to miss shots, but it was also in part by design as they leaked a few guards out after a Washington shot attempt and it resulted in a few easy buckets.
