Celtics take down Wizards 115-105; now face Cavs

BOSTON (AP) - Isaiah Thomas scored 29 points and had 12 assists, Kelly Olynyk scored a career-playoff high 26 points and the Boston Celtics used a big fourth quarter to outlast the Washington Wizards 115-105 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Monday night.

In the end, the Celtics managed to let a 5 point lead slip away in the game's final seconds as John Wall hit the biggest shot of his career, a stunning three-pointer that sealed a 92-91 victory which forced a Game 7.

For both the Celtics and the Wizards, the next round means a meeting with the defending NBA Champions, the Cleveland Cavaliers, which hasn't gone good for any team to face them in the last two years. All tipoffs are now scheduled for 8:30 p.m. and all games will air on TNT.

His play backed up his confidence and, with the help of Kelly Olynyk and the Boston Celtics bench, Thomas earned the biggest win of his career.

While Boston's Olynyk, Smart, rookie Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier all made significant contributions in Game 7, Washington's cast of Mahinmi, midseason acquisition Brandon Jennings and Jason Smith put up the goose egg, and Kelly Oubre Jr. saw the floor for just six seconds after being a factor earlier in the series.

The Celtics will be in the conference finals for the first time since 2012, when they lost to Miami. "But we kept going and stayed the course".

The Boston Celtics cannot slow down the Washington Wizards in the first half of Game 3 tonight, but the bad blood is still running hot on the Washington side. I love the way he plays, I love the way he competes, and he's only gonna get better. Cleveland needed just four games to beat the 60-win Atlanta Hawks in that series. They will matchup against the top seeded Boston Celtics in what should be a competitive series. He scored 11 of 13 points for Boston as the Celtics pushed their lead to 110-100.

'Canelo' Alvarez And Gennady Golovkin To Finally Fight
There was no title on the line Saturday as Alvarez moved up in weight to fight the much bigger Chavez at a catchweight of 164lbs. Alvarez will fight "Triple G" on Sept.16. "He's a good fighter, very fast and very consistent".

After an Olynyk three, Beal hit a three and was fouled by Bradley to close the Wizards within four, 101-97 with six minutes left. They start the night in the No. 3 spot, and if they fall any lower - there's about a 53 percent chance they will - their pick goes to Philadelphia. "I still feel like we were in control of the game". But Olynyk then took over. So that's why they play the games.

"They have a lot of guys that play physical defense, and others guys who space the floor and knock down shots", Wall said. He scored 12 of his 26 points in a three and a half minute stretch in the fourth quarter.

Isaiah Thomas has proved this postseason that he is one of the best point guards in the game.

Game 5: Thursday, May 25, 8:30 p.m.

They are also now the envy of just about every franchise in the association.

The top-seeded Celtics host the National Basketball Association champs in Games 1 and 2 Wednesday and Friday nights. The Wizards had all of the momentum, Bradley Beal was on his way to a 38-point night, and it looked like the C's were on their way to a second-round playoff exit.
