Wall's walk-off forces game 7 for Wizards

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

Looking at the betting trends, the Wizards are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games playing on two days' rest, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last six road games.

Celtics guard, Isiah Thomas, put Boston up 87-82 late when he knocked down a baseline jumper and a three-pointer.

Game 7 of this Eastern Conference semifinal is set for Monday night in Boston (8 p.m. ET, TNT), the victor of which gets the Cavaliers in the conference finals.

As luck would have it, Wizards star John Wall would put the nail in the coffin for the Celtics as he hit a dagger three in the final; seconds to send the second-round series to a final 7th game. The splits for Avery Bradley (20.3 ppg vs.13 ppg) and Al Horford (18.3 ppg vs. 15.7 ppg) are also noteworthy.

In the two-minute report issued Saturday by the National Basketball Association league office analyzing the final moments of the Wizards' 92-91, Game 6 victory, it was determined Washington benefited from an error that ran an extra second off the game clock.

Mourinho rested players last weekend in preparation for this game, making eight alterations to his starting line-up for the 2-0 Premier League defeat at Arsenal.

While that series probably needed to go seven games, this one between budding rivals in the Celtics and Wizards absolutely did.

John Wall did exactly what he was supposed to do Friday night. Wall sank the game-winning 3-point shot. But that's when Wall pulled up off the dribble with a three-point shot from 26 feet, right in the face of Celtics guard Avery Bradley to steal the victory. At home in Game 2, Thomas scored more than half of his 53 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, outdueling Wall and putting on a historic playoff performance.

Boston has been the better team all year, and they've continued to protect their home court against Washington.

The Celtics were denied an extra second to run their final play and the situation was not reviewable.

The gesture didn't end up working out all that well for the Celtics.
