Boston Celtics All-Star Isaiah Thomas is embracing the challenge of his team's upcoming Game 7 against the Washington Wizards in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
The Boston Celtics arrived dressed in black, hoping to bury the Washington Wizards.
Game 7 will be Monday in the TD Garden at 8 p.m. ET.
John Wall hit a go-ahead three-pointer with 3.5 seconds left to lift the Wizards to a 92-91 victory over the Celtics.
In addition to defending Wall, who finished 9-for-25, and was a grisly 1-for-9 at halftime, Bradley scored 27 points two days after he scored a playoff career-high 29 in Game 5.
Well the closing seconds of Game 6 was indeed one of those moments, as Wall raised up for a 3-pointer, a deep 3-pointer, that all Bradley could do was pray to not go in. He has the best field goal percentage, best three-point percentage, the most rebounds, the most blocks and has the second most assists, only trailing Isaiah Thomas by two.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Tokyo would remain in close touch with the USA and South Korea about developments in North Korea. It's the latest in a series of tests by Pyongyang as it pursues a nuclear-tipped missile that can reach the US mainland.
After Bradley and Beal traded shots to even it at 89, the Celtics had the ball and, coming out of a timeout with 14.1 seconds remaining, Al Horford made a 16-foot bank shot for the lead. 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. The victor will face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the East finals starting Wednesday.
"We just came in with the mindset that we just wanted to play great", Wall said.
"To get on the scorer's table, it was for how much love I have for this city, how much love I have for my teammates, how much fight we have", Wall said. The Wizards must find a way to win on the road, which neither team has managed in the series or in any of their four regular season meetings.
The Wizards have not been involved in a Game 7 since 1979 when they defeated the San Antonio Spurs in the Conference Finals, 107-105, from the now-defunct Capital Centre in Landover, Maryland. Those near-misses provide confidence, but also the lesson Game 5 hammered home: They can not afford lapses. The team is giving up 125 points per game in Boston, compared to 94 points per game in Washington. "We feel like we did everything to give ourselves a chance to win".
Actually, if there's one thing he could take back in the final possessions of the game, Bradley said he wished the Celtics had let Thomas work in isolation instead of going to the pick-and-roll play where Thomas wound up getting trapped and making a bad pass, losing the ball to Marcin Gortat.
"It makes you want to go play Game 7 tomorrow", Crowder said.
