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.

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".

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".
