Celtics players made no mention of the possibility of extra time coming off the clock during their postgame media access after Game 6, and it might not have changed how quickly Thomas acted to get off a final shot.
Olynyk's contributions may have been more surprising, but Thomas was still the catalyst.
But if the C's are able to close out their second-round series with the Wizards in tonight's Game 7 at TD Garden, the core pieces of this team - many of whom have been here since the beginning of the post-Big Three rebuild - take that next step towards proving that their time is closer than the current National Basketball Association landscape would suggest. However, Beal's play at home compared to on the road is like night and day. "We can't let plays go by, every possession is going to count".
The victor will want to be at full strength for the finals against the Cavaliers but the possibilities of scuffles and technical fouls to earn players suspensions is a very real possibility this series.
It's a pretty safe bet to say that the Wizards' wardrobe selection in Boston on Monday night is going to contain quite a bit of black. Otto Porter scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and Markieff Morris contributed 18 points and nine rebounds.
Washington stayed close as Beal continued to score, including a four-point play. Boston took a 2-0 lead to kick off the series, but then Washington responded by winning Game 3 and Game 4. The Boston Celtics are averaging 106.4 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 103.3 points on 45.2 percent shooting. "It was in my mind throughout the game that I didn't want them to come here and basically call it a funeral if we lose at home".
With EPL title a formality, challenges await for Chelsea
There will be no Premier League trophy presentation at the Hawthorns on Friday even if Chelsea are confirmed as champions. Commitment and hard work are buzzwords for the 47-year-old Conte but he urged his players to enjoy their moment.
The crowd went into a frenzy after the shot as Wall started into the stands with his chest out and his arms flexed, taking in the moment.
Their second round against the Wizards has not been as smooth of a ride. Wall finished with 26 points and eight assists and Bradley Beal chipped in with 33 points.
Heavyweights Cleveland and Golden State are a combined 17-0 after the Warriors rallied from a huge deficit to beat the Spurs in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday. The Wizards have virtually zero experience when it comes to Game 7's. "So it's a not a satisfied season to me". In fact, after getting all decked out in black apparel and failing to cease the Wizards season, the Celtics pitifully denied their all-black outfits as just a coincidence.
Which team will be reaching the conference Finals?
The betting odds favor a win for the Celtics, who would have home-court advantage in a series against the Cavs.
The upcoming series between the Celtics and Cavaliers could be a classic. Washington's win in Game 6 was the first time all postseason that a home team won an elimination game during the 2017 playoffs.
