This one photo captures the intensity of the Celtics-Wizards series

John Wall: Hero Wall: John hits game-winning 3-pointer

John Wall: Hero Wall: John hits game-winning 3-pointer

If there were any doubters left, the shot proved that as Washington heads to Boston for a chance to advance to its first Eastern Conference finals appearance since 1979, the Wizards have the best version of Wall yet at their disposal.

In the best game of the series by far, Washington's John Wall hit a pull-up three over Boston's Avery Bradley with 3.5 seconds left to play in the game to give the Wizards a 92-91 lead. Beal, after missing all seven of his 3-point attempts, drained a shot from beyond the arc and Wall tied the game by hitting two free throws with 41.2 seconds remaining. Despite the incessant clock stoppages that permeate the end of National Basketball Association games, officials missed this one, which led to a rushed shot by Isaiah Thomas at the buzzer which bricked off the rim, clinching the win for the Wizards.

Meanwhile, the Celtics will be feeling that they let one get away as they were actually up by five points with possession in the final 1:15 of the game before things went sour.

Now, Wall feels more prepared than ever to take the Wizards to the elusive Eastern Conference finals, where he has never been before. This gave Isaiah Thomas more room on the offensive end, which helped him take control of the game in the second half.

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

Yankees Place Aroldis Chapman On DL
The Yankees announced the move Sunday, May 14, before the first game of a day-night doubleheader against the Houston Astros. He underwent an MRI on Saturday morning that did not show any evidence of damage to his shoulder.

NOTES: Game 7 is slated to start at 8 p.m. ET Monday night.

After losing at home in Game 6 of the second round in his previous two playoff appearances, he doesn't yet know the feeling of a Game 7. They were the Bullets, not the Wizards, back then, and they ended up losing in five games to the Seattle Supersonics, who they had defeated to win their one and only title just one year prior.

Beal and wall together scored 59 points, while Morris and Gortat have provided "to Washington" the advantage on the boards (selection 24 for two). You can't dwell on it too long, or it can roll over into Game 7.

Mahinmi, who has played more Game 7s than anyone on the Wizards roster, expects it to be yet another opportunity to marvel at the development of his teammates who were once opponents. The play of both teams has been largely unpredictable over the course of the last six games.

Game 1 was played the day after the funeral of Thomas' sister, Chyna, who was killed in a auto accident in mid-April in their home state of Washington. After undergoing roughly 11 hours of dental work, he scored a career-high 53 points and led the Celtics to a 129-119 overtime win.
