Celtics Victorious in Game 7 to Eliminate Wizards

Bradley Beal led the Wizards, playing their first Game 7 since 1979, with 38 points - including 24 in the second half.

Thomas scored 29 points and dished out a playoff-career-high 12 assists, while Al Horford had 15 points, six rebounds and five assists, Jae Crowder 14 points and five boards, and Smart 13 points, six rebounds and four assists in the win. His points haul includes a 26-foot 3-point shot that capped a 13-3 Celtics run to start the fourth quarter, and gave them the biggest lead of the game.

Kelly Olynyk scored 26 points off the bench, Isaiah Thomas added 29 and the Boston Celtics beat the Washington Wizards 115-105 in game 7 at TD Garden in Boston to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. They will matchup against the top seeded Boston Celtics in what should be a competitive series.

After Monday's game, Stevens hinted that Thomas is battling some bumps and bruises on top of the emotional grief he endured with the loss of his sister at the start of the playoffs. Now it's time to see if they belong.

If the Celtics were superstitious, they can nearly lock down the win before they step onto the court, with home teams 101-26 in National Basketball Association seventh games.

On Monday night, the Celtics stood tall on the dramatic, nerve-infested stage that is an Eastern Conference semifinal Game 7.

The defending champion Cavaliers won three of the four meetings between the teams in the regular season, including a dominant victory in early April with the Cavs back at full strength after some early season injuries. The Celtics will have their hands full with the Cavaliers, who are healthy and clicking at the right time of the season. They rallied around Thomas following his sister's sudden death in the first round, coming back from an 0-2 deficit against the Chicago Bulls.

As a team, the Celtics outpaced the Wizards 48-5 in points off the bench, while Boston made 11 shots from 3-point attempts. Lost season series to Cleveland 3-1. They combined for 59 points in Game 6. "I knew it wouldn't be easy at all", All-Star guard Thomas said. We outlasted them there. Both teams played hard. We were just living in it. "He's the main guy, and we had to stop him", Gortat said.

Avery Bradley did not have as much of an impact on the offensive end like he had in the previous games, scoring only nine points. They were freshmen and Olynyk hadn't been coached up yet - but look at him now.

Boston's mettle has been tested. In Game 4 of that series, Boston's Kelly Olynyk yanked Kevin Love's shoulder out of place fighting for a rebound, which forced Love into season-ending surgery. "So even though you have more people, sometimes less work gets done".

Olynyk was the victim of a Kelly Oubre Jr. shove in Game 3 that got the Wizards forward suspended for Game 4. "We know it's going to be tough but, at this point, anything can happen, we really believe that". "I get my treatment every day and I'm ready to play". Plus, Boston could earn the No. 1 pick in the draft at the draft lottery on Tuesday. The Celtics' lone win against the Cavs took place on March 1 in Boston. The Celtics were red-hot and looking to take control of the Eastern Conference. There's only one thing between James reaching his seventh straight finals appearance and doing it with a week of rest and that's the Boston Celtics.

"Been here before, so we have to be smart", he said.
