Bradley Stuns Wizards as Celtics Win-Lead Series 3-2

Thomas and Jae Crowder both scored 18, Thomas with nine assists and Crowder with eight rebounds.

The second-round series between the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards in the 2017 NBA Playoffs has been characterized by one thing: home-court dominance.

"The great start got us going on both ends of the floor, and we have to be that type of team", said Bradley, who scored 12 points combined in Games 3 and 4. They just need the series to hold form once more - Friday - in order to break it Monday by winning on the road.

"He played like he's supposed to", said Isaiah Thomas, who made one shot and had five points at the half before finishing with 18.

We all know Bradley is one of the NBA's premier defenders and is a good knockdown shooter, but will he able to cut to the basket and create easy baskets for himself now that Washington knows what the Celtics are looking to do when they double- and triple-team Thomas?

The Celtics now lead the best-of-seven series, 3-2.

Washington left the Celtics to 27 points unanswered for.

The Wizards would never get the lead under 10 points in the second half.

"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, via The Washington Post.

"Now I'm seeing the game differently", Thomas said.

In Game 4, Wall had his breakout game, scoring 27 points, dishing out 12 assists and running the show to perfection for the Wizards, leading them to a 121-102 victory notching the series up at 2. The Wizards threw out a similar strategy in Game 5, except this time Thomas was more than willing to set screens and be a passer, and Al Horford absolutely shredded the Wizards high-pressure defense.

Chinese Chicken Is Headed To America. But It's Really All About Beef
US trade experts offered a more muted assessment, calling the agreement a modest fulfillment of past assurances made by China . But with China , which accounts for half of America's trade deficit, Washington is now assuming a starkly different attitude.

"I just thought we all came out with a better sense of goal today than we probably did in those games", Stevens said.

In the first quarter, the Celtics led the Wizards 15-0 in transition points, a surprising statistic given just how good Wall is at orchestrating that part of the game. His streak of consecutive playoff games under 20 points reached three (previous high was 1), but all he's looking for is the W.

"We have guys that can penetrate", Wizards coach Scott Brooks added. The home team is 0-10 in elimination games this postseason.

Now Wizards fans can send their own disparaging chants at a Kelly, with Oubre's buddy Kelly Olynyk hitting the Verizon Center floor once again (no pun intended?). They made adjustments, it must have been something they saw in the film, and they killed us with it in the first quarter. Later they booed him loudly when he touched the ball.

And Bradley put them there, choosing to (insert bad word here) not just Gortat, but all of Washington and even a few of the Maryland and Virginia suburbs.

This roller-coaster of a series and season between the Celtics and Wizards is heading down the final stretch. "We knew that they were going to come out aggressive and they did". Now, the Wizards' season is on the line Friday night.
