Celtics Power Past Wizards In Game 7

The Wizards can feel that they have better talent than the Boston Celtics, but only one team is advancing to the conference finals to face the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The victor advances to meet the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James in the conference finals.

The Boston Celtics advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals after defeating the Washington Wizards in Game 7 of the second round. The Wizards bench defensive rotations were sad, which helped Olynyk get clean looks. Days after his season-saving three, Wall finished with 18 points on 8-of-23 shooting, and 11 assists. With the Celtics down by three, Isaiah Thomas, who had 29 points and 12 rebounds - making him the first player to put up those numbers in a Game 7 since 2007 - hit two 3-pointers and Smart one in a 1:13 span to put the home team ahead to stay.

Washington actually led Boston 55-53 at half, but the combination of Thomas and Al Horford scored 20 points in the third quarter to give them a 85-79 lead heading into the fourth.

"He just made shots", Washington's Marcin Gortat said of Olynyk. Olynyk had experienced many moments inside TD Garden during the first four seasons of his career, but none were like this. The five-foot-nine guard is averaging 25.1 points and six assists a game in the playoffs that started a day after his younger sister died in a auto accident. But you can be sure, the Celtics will compete - it's who they are.

In the second quarter, Wall scored eight points and Beal nine to help the Wizards take a two-point lead into halftime.

The Cavs will have to adjust to not holding home-court advantage for the first time this postseason, as the Celtics held the No. 1 overall seed in the Eastern Conference after the regular season. The Golden State Warriors defeated the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1, and Game 2 is set for Tuesday night at Oracle Arena.

Olynyk was the victim of a Kelly Oubre Jr. shove in Game 3 that got the Wizards guard suspended for Game 4. They didn't give us a chance when we were down 2-0 to Chicago.

I love LeBron as much as everyone else, but there will be some regression against Boston.

"I thought about it a lot", he said.

We won't have long to enjoy this break in normality as the Eastern Conference Finals start on Wednesday and Cleveland will most likely remind us all what the status quo is in the National Basketball Association.

Wall did have six of his 11 assists in the fourth quarter, but was ice cold with his shot. All seven games are scheduled for 8:30 start times.

Boston will host defending champions Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the conference finals on Wednesday night.

Olynyk's highlight basket of the night came during the first quarter, when he faked a dribble-hand-off to Thomas on the right wing and turned the corner for a drive to the rack that eventually turned into a three-point play.
