Wizards force Game 7 after Wall 3-pointer, Thomas miss at buzzer

And they have John Wall to thank for that.

Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas, left, pushes against Washington Wizards guard John Wall during the first half of Game 6 of an NBA basketball second-round playoff series, Friday, May 12, 2017, in Washington. Beal (from 40 percent in the regular season to 28 in the playoffs) and Porter (from 43 to 31), in particular, have been off, and they're supposed to be Washington's most productive from beyond the arc.

Prior to that game-winning shot, Wall was shooting just 8-of-24 from the field and he had 24 points-13 of those came in the third quarter when he shot 5-of-11. Thomas hit two shots in a row towards the end of the game to give the Celtics a five-point lead. "Just go out there and compete, give it our all and see what the outcome (is)". "He's not anxious about his stats, he's anxious about winning the game". Thomas then hit a three over Wall to give the Celtics a 87-82 lead with under two minutes remaining and the Wizards looked dead in the water. Bradley Beal hit a clutch 3-pointer after Washington forced a key turnover to help get the game back in reach. Game 6 between the Boston Celtics and the Washington Wizards was as closely contested as it gets.

On Friday, Bradley told ESPN's Chris Forsberg that the best feeling in the world is ending a series on your opponent's turf.

No, success is when the final buzzers sounds and John Wall is leaping on the Garden's scoring table, telling Boston what time it is.

"We had our best on-ball defender on their All-Star", Stevens said, describing the game-deciding play. "Avery did a heck of a job on (Wall) all night but he has that confidence to take that shot". This season, he's made 1.1 out of 3.5 attempts per game, 32.7 percent. He took three dribbles - the first two advanced the ball forward, the third was between the legs for misdirection purposes - then he shot, and made, his first 3-pointer of the night, which brought the Wizards within two points with 1:09 left in the game. But some defensive lapses by the Wizards followed, and the Celtics scored the next 10 points en route to going up 42-41 at halftime. "It's hard to believe that will continue to be the case, but sometimes the playoffs do follow certain trends". Washington ended the period with a 22-17 lead. The Wizards' out-rebounded the Celtics 59-47 overall in the game and outscored the Celtics 48-26 in the paint. The concept came after a matchup earlier in the month at Boston that included a scuffle when Crowder poked Wall in the nose. However, the Celtics still had an opportunity to win the game.

Sterling also suffered from news of falling industrial production in Britain and a widening of the country's trade deficit. It said growth had fallen "markedly" in the first quarter and added a "slowdown appeared to be in train".

"It's only right", Wall said.

"It was kind of something that just happened", guard Avery Bradley said. They probably didn't even hear me and they didn't need to, because they already knew what they had to do.
