Wall continued his historic run, becoming the only player in National Basketball Association playoff history to record 11 straight games of at least 20 points and seven assists. But next game I've got to be more aggressive.
"He did not suffer a fractured or broken jaw", the Celtics said.
The second-round National Basketball Association playoff series between the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards has been physical, to say the least. In the first quarter, the Wizards' defense was predicated on optimism - hoping that Thomas and the Celtics would miss.
In Games 1 & 2 in Boston, the Wizards had leads of 17 and 14 points, respectively. The Wizards, according to Coach Scott Brooks, played perhaps their best stretch of the season on that front during a 26-0 run in the third quarter that allowed them to pull away for good in securing a second straight double-digit victory and improving to 5-0 at home in this postseason.
Next up? Game 5 on Wednesday night in Boston.
Game 3 is Saturday night in Salt Lake City. Additionally, the Wizards outscored the Celtics in the paint 56-38. The Wizards got into the paint with nearly no resistance and despite starting Amir Johnson, there was zero presence on the glass.
"You guys are good".
You have to be able to execute our game plan. They went on a 26-0 run and we can't have that on the road.

There has been no buddy ball between the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards. The Celtics rely on the defensive mirroring of Marcus Smart, Avery Bradley, and Jae Crowder to keep up their intensity, but they were horrendous.
Insane is just how the Wizards like it. (Marcin) Gortat ended up on Isaiah on more than a couple of occasions. But for the Wizards to make such a quick turnaround at the expense of the Celtics' confidence was quite a surprise.
Oubre's outburst in the second quarter of Game 3 on Thursday resulted in a flagrant 2 foul and an ejection. Oubre was automatically ejected from the game.
That's definitely an eye-popping statistic, as Thomas averaged 8.5 free-throw attempts per game during the regular season and is recording 8.4 attempts a night during the playoffs.
Thomas not only had four fouls in Sunday's 121-102 loss, he struggled offensively with only two of his 19 points coming after halftime.
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were a combined 7 for 29 from the field and 3 for 15 from 3-point range, leaving Durant to lead the Warriors. They started him on Wall, but the Wizards promptly put him into hard Gortat screens, draining his energy.
Washington never led by 50, but after trailing 53-48 early in the third it was 74-53 by the time Porter made a layup with 5 minutes left in the quarter. Wall continued warming up has he hit a pair of field goals to help close the Wizards within three, 42-39, as the only basket in the 11-2 Wizards run was a Bradley dunk. I'm not the one that likes hitting the ground.
The Wizards and Celtics would both finish with 20 turnovers, but it was the points off turnovers that gave the Wizards the advantage. In all, the Celtics tried 10 players to stop the blitz. After walking the first two batters, Tillman bounced back nicely in his first appearance since the 2016 AL wild-card game.
