Wall's game victor quietens Celtics' funeral talk

Here's a more detailed breakdown of the play, which came after John Wall's clutch go-ahead 3-pointer. "They want to be us so bad", Wizards forward Markieff Morris said. "I got too much heart. That's why he's a superstar".

John Wall and Bradley Beal present their own problems, especially in regards to who Thomas will have to defend, and Gortat was a terror on the glass in Game 6 to buy his team extra possessions, but it feels as if the Celtics have made the necessary adjustments over the course of the series. The only thing he did not do with any level of proficiency was shoot the 3-pointer (1-for-8) but to be fair, no one in a Wizards uniform did (the rest of the team shot 4-for-16). A nine-point haul from Thomas in overtime, led the Celtics to the win.

The expression goes, "dance with the girl who brung you", and by that logic Bradley Beal should be the MVP of the Wizards' 92-91 victory. The third of those came via an acrobatic move in which he switched hands while in mid-air hanging underneath the basket, tying the game at 72. The Wizards were playing for their playoff lives and they did just enough to pull away from the Celtics by a point to survive and force a Game 7. His attacking approach yielded 14-for-17 shooting on two-point attempts in addition to five assists in almost 43 minutes, the most playing time among any player on either team.

Had the Wizards lost to the Celtics in Game 6 they would have met the same fate as the Wizards of 2015, 2014 and 2005-death by second-round defeat at home. Wall then hit his go-ahead three that gave the Wizards the win. "Brad missed seven straight [3-pointers]". When the buzzer sounded, he ran to a corner of the court, then made his way to the sideline, jumped up and yelled and popped his jersey.

When it comes to Game 7 experience, the Celtics have a lot bottled up in the minds of their two most veteran players -- Avery Bradley and Al Horford.

After losing at home in Game 6 of the second round in his previous two playoff appearances, he doesn't yet know the feeling of a Game 7. Brown has been too shot happy and needs to use his driving ability more as Boston needs that kick off the bench. Bradley Beal is scoring 24.3 points on 18 shots per game at Verizon Center and just 19 points on 17.7 shots at TD Garden. "It would be so good for this city and so good for this team to win tomorrow night".

After hitting the game-winning shot, Wall was clearly still upset about the Celtics' pre-game attire.
