Wall nailed a 3-pointer with 3 1/2 seconds left to give the Wizards a 92-91 win over the Celtics, sending the series back to Boston for Game 7 on Monday. Wall (26.3 PPG) and Beal (21.7 PPG), meanwhile, have accounted for 43.6 percent of Washington's 660 total points. No matter how many points he could put up in a single game - he's averaging 27.9 this postseason after 23.1 in the regular season - if he couldn't get a basket when the Wizards needed it the most, nothing else seemed to matter. Despite the incessant clock stoppages that permeate the end of National Basketball Association games, officials missed this one, which led to a rushed shot by Isaiah Thomas at the buzzer which bricked off the rim, clinching the win for the Wizards.
The Celtics led Game 6 by five points with less than 90 seconds remaining. The Celtics lost three of four in the head-to-head series with the Cavaliers during the regular season. The victor will face the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals. "After Game 6 on Friday, Thomas downplayed any connection, saying that there was no coordinated outfit among the Celtics". "It hurts right now, because we just lost".
"It makes you want to go play Game 7 tomorrow", Crowder said.
John Wall provided that pleasure, with a game-winning shot, and the closest game of this series was ended with a home team's thrilling victory. After undergoing roughly 11 hours of dental work, he scored a career-high 53 points and led the Celtics to a 129-119 overtime win. He took three dribbles - the first two advanced the ball forward, the third was between the legs for misdirection purposes - then he shot, and made, his first 3-pointer of the night, which brought the Wizards within two points with 1:09 left in the game. It's Game 6. Their season was on the line, so they should have been motivated by everything else, just like we're motivated for Game 7.

Andy Murray loses out as Austrian lands a British hat-trick
Thiem started strong, breaking Murray's first two service games before adding a third break en route to taking the first set. Thiem's game just fell apart since then thanks to that deadly Nadal blow and he cut a sorry figure for the rest of the set.
Will there be any more controversy in Monday night's winner-take-all Game 7? The play of both teams has been largely unpredictable over the course of the last six games.
"I thought it was going in". The team is giving up 125 points per game in Boston, compared to 94 points per game in Washington.
The Wizards have not been involved in a Game 7 since 1979 when they defeated the San Antonio Spurs in the Conference Finals, 107-105, from the now-defunct Capital Centre in Landover, Maryland.
