Cavs Will Face Celtics In Eastern Conference Finals

You're risking quite a bit of your cap space (let alone the actual dollars) for a player whose ceiling still isn't quite clear - and a guy who didn't score in the Wizards' biggest game of the season.

Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas is introduced before Game 7 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series against the Washington Wizards, Monday, May 15, 2017, in Boston. The Celtics missed a load of shots early, the Wizards starters grew stronger, and the third quarter teetered back and forth; it nearly tumbled away from the Celtics, then they yanked it back to sprint past Washington.

This game comes down to which side can sustain pressure and not succumb to "Game 7 demons" when they face off for the right to take on Cleveland in the Western playoffs. Before this, Olynyk's playoff career-high was just 14 points - the same amount he scored in the fourth quarter alone. Boston also connected on 11 three-pointers, including 8 of 13 in the second half. Then Olynyk took over.

227.7. If things stay true to form, these two teams should have a high-scoring, entertaining set of games, even if the Celtics have no real chance at winning the series. "They had that little run at the start of the fourth quarter".

The Senate and House intelligence committees are also probing possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. The White House did not dispute the Times reporting on Trump's quote.

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.

The Cavaliers arrive in the conference finals eager to defend their conference title and get back to their presumed matchup against the Warriors. Boston's well-balanced offense and tenacious defense down the stretch ultimately was too much for the Wizards to handle, as the Celtics were in total control in the fourth quarter en route to victory.

After an Olynyk three, Beal hit a three and was fouled by Bradley to close the Wizards within four, 101-97 with six minutes left.

Down just six points, head coach Scott Brooks must have known it was danger time anyway. The C's also assisted on seven of their nine shots made. Still have not reached a conference final since 1979.

Celtics: Improved to 22-8 all-time in Game 7s and 19-4 all-time at home.Outscored the Wizards 58-40 in the paint.

The Cs edged Cleveland for first place in the East during the regular season, and have homecourt in this series. Well, Beal and Wall will have to conjure up more of what they were cooking in Game 6.

James has gotten strong support from point guard Kyrie Irving (23.8 points per game despite struggling with his shooting), and role players Tristan Thompson (10.8 rebounds) and Kyle Korver (48.5 percent on 3-pointers) have done what's required.
