Eastern Conference Finals Guide: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics

16 Mai, 2017, 13:48 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier
  • Boston Celtics v Washington Wizards- Game Six

But the Celtics opened up a 13-point lead early in the fourth quarter in what had been a mostly back-and-forth game to that point.

The Celtics were led by their star guard Isaiah Thomas with 29 points and a game-high 12 assists.

"But we have a special opportunity to get a chance to compete against them". I've seen them play before.

Boston, keeping the home-court dominance of the season series intact, trailed by five with 5:39 left in the third quarter but outscored the Wizards 21-9 over the remainder of the period.

Wizards: Dropped to 6-5 all-time in Game 7s. Oubre played just six seconds in Game 7, the crowd chanting his name in the final seconds.

Olynyk had 14 of his points in the fourth quarter and was the X-factor that swung the series in Boston's favour. "Marcus I thought, played as hard as he possibly could".

When the offense bogged down with overdribbling and bad pass turnovers, including by Beal during a 9-2 run for Boston to begin the fourth quarter, what had been a nervous sellout crowd exploded to carry them to the finish line.

The Celtics had led 2-0 and 3-2 in the best-of-seven contest but were twice pegged before a 115-105 win in game seven sent them through to a meeting with the Cleveland Cavaliers. In previous games, the Wizards had success with exploiting some of Olynyk's defensive weaknesses with their quick guards, but they just didn't have enough juice left to make him pay at the end of this one, and that was the difference. The first quarter was a yo-yo affair, the Celtics got up 8, and then the Wizards came back to tie it, the Celtics went back up by 7, and the Wizards tied it again.

Led by Olynyk, the Celtics got a huge lift from their bench, outscoring their Wizards counterparts 48-5. This was only the second time all season that Olynyk had scored 20 or more points, as he matched the 26 points he put up against the Hawks in January.

John Wall added 18 points and 11 assists for the Wizards, but missed his final 10 shots. The deciding game took place at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. John Wall had 18 but shot just 8 for 23 from the field.

With Isaiah Thomas leading the charge, the Celtics have rejoined the fray.

"I know that we're a franchise that expects championships, and that's great", Horford said. It would've been their first conference final since 1979 but the No. 4 seed in the East made their deepest progress in the postseason in 38 years regardless. Outrebounded the Celtics 43-31.

Cavaliers general manager David Griffin deserves a ton of credit for how he's augmented what was an extremely top-heavy Cleveland team's bench throughout this season. Coincidentally, his two best have come against Wizards in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
