Celtics power past Wizards in Game 7, 115-105

Boston will be playing its 30th Game 7 (21-8). "Seems like it was meant to be". John Wall wasn't much help either, finishing with 18 points on 8-of-23 shooting and disappearing late in the game. "All day and night I watched Paul Pierce vs. LeBron James and how special that was, two superstars going at it, guarding each other and it was a historic game".

Ultimately, Isaiah Thomas would miss a desperation heave - sending this hard-fought series back to Boston for Game 7 on Monday.

But on a night that both Thomas and Bradley Beal were spectacular, it was Boston's 7-foot backup center who somehow stole the show.

After Al Horford banked in a 16-footer to make it 91-89 with 7.7 seconds left in Game 6, all the Celtics had to do was get one more defensive stop to secure the series.

The victor will want to be at full strength for the finals against the Cavaliers but the possibilities of scuffles and technical fouls to earn players suspensions is a very real possibility this series.

He was forced to take a penalty stroke but then nearly holed out with a wedge from 115 yards to leave himself with a tap-in bogey. Defending champion Jason Day closed with an 80, keeping very much in tact the streak of no victor ever repeating in the Players.

"I don't believe in pressure", Thomas said.

Wizards leader finished the game with 26 points but struggling with field goal percentage as he had 9 of 25 in the game, 1 from 9 in the first half.

Wall had 13 points and Bradley Beal notched 14 points to put the Wizards on top at the half, 55-53. The Wizards have to fix their bench this summer. The Wizards haven't reached the Eastern Conference Finals since 1979, when the team advanced to the NBA Finals. The difference of the game may have been a matter of one point, but it was a costly point. He was 2-0 with Oklahoma City, both wins over Memphis.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said the agency would seek deportation for Banda-Acosta after any prison sentence is served. He was arrested in 2009 and twice in 2011 for driving with a suspended license and was charged with a DUI in 2009.

The Wizards now will be trying to be the first team in this matchup to win on the opponent's home floor in 2016-17.

Usually NBA players say that they just block out all the noise before a big game, so for Wall to say he was thinking about the Celtics' wearing all black "throughout the game" is significant. I think we have that trademarked, right?

"It's either go on vacation or leave everything out there on the floor, and that's what I'm going to do". Boston F Jae Crowder had 10 points.

The whistle blew with 2.7 seconds on the clock but an extra second ticked off and was not noticed by officials or the timekeeper. All 11 meetings this season (four in regular-season and seven postseason) were claimed by the home team.

Boston also got key contributions from reserves Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown, and the Celtics' bench players outscored their Washington counterparts 48-5 on the night, while none of their starters were on the court for more than 40 minutes.
