East finals trip on line as Wizards, Celtics head to Game 7

Sandy Vega | 16 May, 2017, 11:41

The Boston Celtics held on as victors of a freakish back-and-forth Game 7 against Washington Wizards in which backup big Kelly Olynyk heard chants around TD Garden in the fourth quarter.

Boston advances and will host Cleveland in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday.

In a see-sawing series typified by fourth-quarter comebacks, the Wizards snuck home in Game 6 on the back of some John Wall and Bradley Beal magic.

About the only drama in Boston's Game 5 win was when the Wizards scored the first two buckets of the game, for fear the Celtics would get off to another slow start. But the second half was all Olynyk, as he poured in another 14 points, including two clutch 3-point shots as the Wizards fought to trim Boston's lead. The duo combined for 42 of the team's 51 second-half points, proving that a powerful pair can take on an entire team - seven Boston players pitched in through the second half and yet still got outscored. But Washington also had 15 turnovers, leading to 17 Celtics' points.

Though the Wizards pulled off a 92-91 Game 6 win on Friday, the game was marred by controversy after the National Basketball Association admitted that the Celtics had an extra second for a final shot during its two-minute report.

"Now's our chance", Bradley Beal said Monday morning.

Isaiah Thomas, the Celtics' point guard and scoring engine, said he had no second thoughts about the black attire, and insisted he would have no earthly reason to.

Washington did respond to Boston's run with a 7-0 run to climb back into it, but they were never able to get over the hump. I can tell you Wall's stats, and how he is averaging 28 points and 10 assists this post season, but that's not what you want to hear. Ever since that game, Thomas has only gotten over 20 points once. Very few teams have the ability to go eight or nine deep in the playoffs, but the Celtics certainly do.

Here is the complete schedule for the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals between the Cavs and the Celtics. He scored 25 points in the first half of the game that piled up 22 points against the opponent. "It was unbelievable to be in there and feel that energy, that enthusiasm and passion", Olynyk said after his best game in a Celtics uniform. After going for 53 points in Game 2, Scott Brooks and the Wizards made it a point to keep Thomas from beating them. Just one win and the Wizards return to the conference finals for the first time since 1979.

Two No. 1 seeds met in the NCAA title game, with the most popular pick (North Carolina) winning the title. If it lost by 12.5 or more points ATS in Game 6, its record in the decisive Game 7 was 7-4 (63.6 percent) which is not much more that the overall winning percentage of this strategy.

Boston, on the other hand, has multiple rotations it can play and be effective with.

Mahinmi said he had watched a replay of Wall's 3-pointer a "million times". Neither team has won on the other's court this season and Washington hasn't won in Boston since the 2014 regular season.

No matter what hairstyle he goes with, hopefully Olynyk can continue to provide a big boost for the Celtics off the bench.
