Celtics power past Wizards in Game 7, 115-105

Isaiah Thomas has been averaging nearly 30 points per game this series to lead the Celtics to this point. Thomas had five assists, more than Washington's entire team (four) in the period. After looking frisky for the first few games of the series, Kelly Oubre inexplicably didn't play tonight, while Ian Mahinmi looked like an oversized fan on the court, picking up four fouls, missing his only shot, and doing nothing to stop the Celtics big men. Knowing that we're on the road we have to play great. "We're going to have to play really well".

The Celtics had the largest lead of the first half at 10-2, but that gap was quickly erased by Washington as Boston started to accumulate fouls. Beal nearly singlehandedly kept the Wizards afloat late in the second half, hitting big shot after big shot. John Wall and Markieff Morris each finished with 18. He dominated, launching daggers left and right during the Celtics' 18-2 run to open the fourth and grab their first double digit lead of the night.

The Wizards responded with more energy after half-time, but each of their mini-runs were quickly beaten back by Boston, which continued to share the ball and take advantage of their fast break opportunities.

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.

Washington would once again tie it up at 89 on a layup by Beal with 28 seconds to play. Boston carried their positive momentum into the fourth quarter, where Olynyk took over.

"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".

Brooks played Beal and Wall 46 and 45 minutes, respectively, but said it was necessary to try to stay in the game.

The Wizards were bidding for their first trip beyond the second round since 1979. Wearing a black shirt, he scoffed at the idea Wall and the Wizards derived some boost from knowing about the Celtics' choice of attire.

Washington's Ian Mahinmi, who was part of the 2014 Indiana Pacers' team that eliminated Washington in the East semifinals, said both Wall and Bradley Beal have matured a lot since then.

"Washington" and "Boston" continue to dispute the ticket to the Eastern conference finals.

Wednesday afternoon storms could be severe
Now that we are past that, the odds may go down some, but we don't really come out of tornado season until the end of May. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 6 PM for Pueblo, Crowley, Otero, Bent, Huerfano, and Las Animas counties.

"It's tough. We came out here Game 7 and gave everything we had".

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

It has been an ugly series and the bad blood between the two teams dates back tot he regular season.

Mimicking what the Wizards had done before a regular-season game, the Celtics wore black into the Verizon Center for Game 6, and it may have backfired and helped add fire to the home team.
