Washington Wizards stay alive in Game 6 thriller

Thanks to John Wall's game-winning 3-pointer in Game 6, the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics will face off Monday night for the chance to play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals.

Heading into Monday's Game 7 between the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics, I found some great Game 7 betting trends by digging into the past nine National Basketball Association postseasons.

The Wizards pulled even with a 92-91 victory Friday that was easily the best game of the series. The team that wins will not have to pack their bags, they will keep their season alive, and advance to the next round of the playoffs, the conference finals.

Porter has never played in a Game 7, but he showed no nerves looking ahead to the matchup. Despite the momentum from John Wall game-winner, the Celtics are playing Game 7 at home and look to have the upper hand. Thomas' heave at the buzzer clanked off the rim.

The correct response, as muttered by several players, would be "Game 7" - the dessert of this delectable Eastern Conference semifinal series between rivals that happens Monday night inside TD Garden.

Despite a slow start-Wall scored 23 of his 26 points in the second half-Wall stepped into the game-winner and drained it with confidence. "The ball went our way in the end and we get to force a Game 7 in their place".

Later, Wall added: "It was just amusing to me".

The Wizards will play in a Game 7 for the first time since the 1979 Eastern Conference Finals (won, 107-105 over the Spurs).

Almost all of the offensive credit for the Celtics' strong Game 6 play, despite the loss, goes to their starters.

Game 7 of this series is set to tip May 15 at 8 pm EST on TNT. Wall has overcome some shooting droughts to be outstanding throughout, and he hit the 3-pointer that won Game 6. So by that point I think our group - what hit us was something different because the energy in the Garden was unbelievable. He and Avery Bradley each had 27 points. Since his incredible 53-point outburst in Game 2, however, the point guard has failed to reach the 20-point mark three times. I like how Thomas said that he was the first one at the gym so he was not aware on the all black attire.

The Wizards also exorcised some elimination-game demons by snapping a streak of seven straight elimination game losses at home.

Isaiah Thomas is 1-for-13 on shots off drives in that span.

Stopping Horford is going to be easier said than done.

"To get on the scorer's table, it was for how much love I have for this city, how much love I have for my teammates and how much fight we have", he said.

John Wall and Bradley Beal present their own problems, especially in regards to who Thomas will have to defend, and Gortat was a terror on the glass in Game 6 to buy his team extra possessions, but it feels as if the Celtics have made the necessary adjustments over the course of the series.

"It was just amusing to me", Wall said to CSN Mid-Atlantic of the Celtics' all-black.
