Celtics-Wizards Game 6 What To Watch For

Horford was a force in Game 5, hitting eight of his nine shots for 19 points to go with seven assists and six rebounds.

Boston, Massachusetts - Boston Celtics has mastered winning the game on their home court by beating the Washington Wizards last Thursday with a score of 123-101, grabbing a 3-2 lead in the second playoff National Basketball Association games.

"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.

In Game 4, the Wizards and Celtics played a competitive first half and were tied at the break, but the Wiz broke the game open in the third quarter when they went on a 26-0 run to secure their fate and tie the series at 2-2.

Al Horford has been everything the Celtics wanted when they signed him to the ginormous contract over the offseason.

Thomas said the coaching staff did a good job of getting them ready for game five. So when Boston forward Jae Crowder mentioned that the team was familiar with the Wizards' plays after the 123-101 win, CSN Wizards tried to get to the bottom of things with a Spygate joke. Their efforts helped the Celtics win with Thomas in a complementary role, scoring 18 points with nine assists and numerous invaluable picks.

"I'm just amazed because we were so thrilled at the chance of getting Al even before he made a decision to come to us", he said.

"Now I'm seeing the game differently", Thomas said. John Wall was held to 21 points and 4 assists for the Wizards. "All we can do is focus on Game 6 at home", Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal told reporters. That wasn't the case, as Boston answered Washington's 4-0 start with a 16-0 run and that was essentially the ballgame. The Celtics made some good adjustments, played Thomas off the ball and even made him set screens for other players to keep the offense in rhythm. Both times, Smart, a career 29.1% three-point shooter, found the bottom of the net. So, here they are again, trailing 3-2 in the conference semifinals with a crucial Game 6 at home against the number one seed in the East. Their first quarter burst came after the Wizards scored the first four points of the game.

"There were a few guys that walked up to me and said 'I think Jimmy had said last game that we can't let guys like Avery Bradley score 20, '" Bradley recalled.

Celtics fans chanted "We want Oubre!"

Kelly Oubre not a popular man in Boston.

Hey, Bradley Beal, why does the host come out on top every time?

Even then, each team downplayed the rivalry claims, but little did they know that they would be on a collision course to meet in the playoffs. And, unlike the theme of Wizards' run this series - double-digit runs on the road, only to see the leads evaporate - the Celtics never relinquished their early lead.

They had 10 fastbreak points in the first quarter, and routinely turned turnovers and missed layups into transition buckets. The Wizards margin of victory over Boston in their four homes games are 15, 19, 25 and 27 points.
