Washington has resisted in a series with "Boston"

It also marked the latest big performance by Thomas, in a playoff run that began in the haze of his younger sister's death in a vehicle accident. That says a lot about the team we are. "You always think of Game 7s".

Bradley Beal led the Wizards - which was playing it its first Game 7 since 1979 - with 38 points, including 24 in the second half. However, Beal's play at home compared to on the road is like night and day. Otto Porter scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and Markieff Morris contributed 18 points and nine rebounds.

Boston, which won Game 5 at home by 22 points, led Game 6 by 69-66 entering the fourth quarter, when a relatively blah game became much more compelling.

Boston trailed 76-72 late in the third quarter before a 13-3 spurt. For as much fun as it was to see Olynyk play out of his mind on Monday night, Boston is well aware that level of play from their third big man is not sustainable.

Washington stayed close as Beal continued to score, including a four-point play.

Boston has been damn near begging for Olynyk to be an aggressive, in attack mode scorer that a player with his skills has the potential to be. The Boston Celtics are averaging 106.4 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 103.3 points on 45.2 percent shooting. "He was the difference today - a huge difference".

Morris started out hot but he couldn't do a thing on Olynyk, and Wall turned back into a pumpkin as the going got tough.

Few saw Kim coming - including himself. "Well it's just the way this golf course is", he said after posted 73 in the final round. He also managed to take all the drama out of the final round, rare for this tournament and this golf course .

"A lot of people counted us out this year and I feel like every single game throughout this year we got better and better and better and better". These numbers are reminiscent of Russell Westbrook's horrifying fourth quarters against the Thunder, only with less scoring.

Oubre didn't make his first appearance of the game until the start of the second quarter, with the Celtics already holding a double-digit lead they'd never relinquish. But that's when Wall pulled up off the dribble with a three-point shot from 26 feet, right in the face of Celtics guard Avery Bradley to steal the victory.

Celtics great Bill Russell, arguably the greatest victor in the history of the four major sports, never lost one a winner-take-all game.

"Don't come to my city wearing all black talking about it's a funeral", Wall said on ESPN after that game.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' opponent for the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals will be decided Monday night. "So it's a not a satisfied season to me".

Curry scored 40 points and hit a tying 3-pointer with 1:48 remaining, and the Warriors rallied from way behind after Kawhi Leonard was lost to an ankle injury to beat the San Antonio Spurs 113-111 on Sunday in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.

While Bradley is looking ahead to the conference finals, Wall and the Wizards seem focused on the task at hand.
