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

But John Wall's game-winning 3-pointer gave Washington a 92-91 win in Game 6 of the second-round National Basketball Association playoff series at Verizon Center.

By Friday night, Wall confidently backed up his words by hitting the game-clinching three-pointer in the Wizards' 92-91 win over the Boston Celtics.

"The great start got us going on both ends of the floor, and we have to be that type of team", said Bradley, who scored 12 points combined in Games 3 and 4.

Wizards guard Bradley Beal led all scorers with 33 points on 15-for-26 shooting.

After a game as close as this, Celtics fans could easily point to Al Horford missing an uncontested layup in the first quarter, as it led directly to a Wall layup about three seconds later.

Wall finished with 26 points, recovering from a 1-for-12 start from the field by making eight of his final 13 shots. The teams will play Game 7 on Monday night in Boston.

So how can the Celtics steal a game in D.C. and end the series before heading back to The Garden? "We have nothing to hold our heads down about, we're going to take a few days to figure out our adjustments and win Game 7".

Until Washington's Kelly Oubre Jr. delivered the most positive foul of the game after the Celtics allowed the clock to run down to 1.7 seconds before Kelly Olynyk broke free to take an Isaiah Thomas pass under the basket.

Although effective in his point guard role with six assists in the opening quarter, Wall struggled to find his shot.

Wizards: Had lost seven consecutive elimination games at home. "I wanted to take the open shots that were there and make plays for guys".

"I thought it was going in", Thomas said.

After falling behind 40-30, the Celtics clawed their way back with a 10 straight, the last of which being a Jae Crowder lay-up after Jaylen Brown grabbed an offensive rebound that tied the score at 40 with 44.5 seconds to play in the first half. "A guy like John Wall you're not gonna stop.He does a hell of a job on him". Avery Bradley scored 25 of his 29 points in the first half and fueled a 16-0 run in the first quarter that gave the Celtics all the breathing room they needed. The Nationals have played just more than a quarter of their games.

"Two best words in playoffs is "Game 7", Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. The Wizards fell one win short of their goal of 50 for the regular season, but that would certainly make up for it. We'd be nowhere near where we are without him, and I don't think there's any player, coach, anybody that is around him day to day that doesn't understand and appreciate him. The rational mind tends to think there will be a Game 7 back in Boston.

Wall had only hit 29.9 percent of his pull-up 3-pointers this season, according to NBA.com.

Asked about his players' sartorial decision, Boston's Brad Stevens said: "I'm not on the text chain".

Over their last two trips to the postseason, the Wizards are 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in 10 playoff home games per the OddsShark NBA Database.
