If the Celtics were to score on their next possession, they would be up seven or eight points with no more than 1:25 left in the game.

"But Game 7 in Boston, we wouldn't want it no other way, I mean, other than winning tonight". The home team is 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Boston.

After all the bickering and shoving and now each side wearing black to a game just to prove that the joy of third grade never really leaves you, the C's and Wiz will push their season's chips to the middle of the parquet floor at 8 o'clock Monday night. Every player on our team, as a kid, you dream about playing a Game 7.

The Celtics led Game 6 by five points with less than 90 seconds remaining.

"That's where all the great players make their name", said Thomas. We can't let plays go by.

The second-round series between the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards has been responsible for some of the ugliest games in the 2017 NBA Playoffs, but it's also produced the two best words in all of sports-Game 7. Coach said blitz him, he can't see over our guys. In transition guys are trying to match up, guys are scrambling, the clock is running down. Heading home will make it easier for the Celtics to shake their brutal finish in Game 6.


There's been no shortage of drama when it comes to the second-round series between the Celtics and Wizards.

The Celtics thought they had the game in the bag just after Al Horford called glass from the short corner.

The team from Boston had 5 points lead coming into the last minute, but they just didn't know how to close the game.

However, Wall's heroics would give the Wizards the win and send the series to a do or die game seven.

It appeared that the Celtics lost a second on the game clock in the final seconds of their loss, and according to the National Basketball Association, they did in fact lose time on the clock, which forced them to put up their final shot earlier than may have been necessary.

Wizards vs Boston Game 7 is Monday - With a firm swing, fate seemed to turn the Wizards way in game 6 as they took down the Celtics 92-91 to force Monday's game 7 in Boston. But if they defeat Boston and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, their confidence will be sky high against the World Champion Cleveland Cavaliers. The Wizards were only down by two points.
