The 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs second-round series lives on in the Eastern Conference side of the National Basketball Association playoff bracket as the Washington Wizards vs. Boston Celtics Game 7 takes place Monday night on TNT at 8:00 p.m. ET. DeMar DeRozan knows what I'm talking about.
Added Thomas: "We came out on top".
"We needed it", Olynyk said. He's the first Celtics reserve player to score 25-plus points in a playoff game since Eddie House scored 31 points against the Orlando Magic in 2009. The Cleveland Cavaliers are waiting for the victor in the Eastern Conference Finals and tonight's victor has to feel positive moving into that series because LeBron James and the Cavs have been sitting around waiting to play.
That can't be fixed - so Boston, aiming for its first conference finals appearance since 2012, will have to win it at home.
"He was terrific", said Celtics head coach Brad Stevens. It also marked the latest big performance by Thomas, in a playoff run that began in the haze of his younger sister's death in a vehicle accident. "They didn't give us a chance in this series, they didn't give us a chance when we were down 2-0 in Chicago". "You always think of Game 7s". I wasn't able to play against the 76ers in the second round but when we went to Game 7 against [Miami] I know that was our mindset; We weren't gonna settle.
For the Wizards, Bradley Beal led all scorers with 38 points with John Wall chipping in with a double-double of 18 points and 11 assists. Knowing that we're on the road we have to play great. "The end result.The only thing that matters is getting a win".
The Wizards hung tough, paced by Otto Porter Jr., and closed the gap to 46-45. John Wall finished with just 18 points on 8-of-23 shooting overall. The run grew to 22-5 in the opening minutes of the fourth as the Celtics' lead became 94-81.
Washington would once again tie it up at 89 on a layup by Beal with 28 seconds to play.
Two of the biggest stars on one side delivered when the best player on the other went down. "He was the difference today - a huge difference".
Wall and Beal both shook off slow starts. "It was in my mind throughout the game that I didn't want them to come here and basically call it a funeral if we lose at home". The Celtics are assured of no worse than the fourth pick in Tuesday night's draft lottery as they still reap the benefits of the Kevin Garnett/Paul Pierce trade to Brooklyn. It was the Celtics' offensive efficiency and roster depth that ultimately won them the series.
The Wizards were bidding for their first trip beyond the second round since 1979.
In a series filled with blow-outs, flagrant fouls, and missing teeth, Game 7 looks to be the climax of this series.
"It was just amusing to me", Wall said to CSN Mid-Atlantic of the Celtics' all-black. The victor will tip off the Eastern Conference finals Wednesday in Cleveland. "So it's a not a satisfied season to me".
The Wizards may have the emotion on their side heading into game 7 and the memory that they won their in January could give them some sort of edge.
Which team will be reaching the conference Finals? Outrebounded the Celtics 43-31. Lost season series to Cleveland 3-1.
