Pivotal Game 5 awaits Boston as it returns home vs. Wizards

Instead, it was Avery Bradley who paced Boston with 29 points - a playoff career high - to go along with six rebounds and six assists.

Suspended for Game 4 of his team's second-round playoff game on Sunday, Washington forward Kelly Oubre Jr. had to watch from afar - at his home, with his father - while his teammates handled Boston without him. That defense is the Boston Celtics Achilles Heel.

Game 5 of the 2017 Eastern Conference Semifinals between the No. 1 Boston Celtics and the No. 4 Washington Wizards is the pivotal game in this best-of-seven series. Isaiah Thomas scored 18 points and handed out nine assists.

Brad Stevens is sticking with Amir Johnson for Game 5 against the Wizards.

The Boston Celtics and the Washington Wizards are fighting it out for the chance to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals. The home crowd at TD Garden has been Boston's fuel all series, and Wednesday was no different as the Celtics' supporting cast came alive in a friendly atmosphere.

But with the East's top seed locked in 2-2 tie with Washington, the outcome of this series could go a long way toward affirming the recent moves Ainge has made, or exposing the holes that still exist as his team chases banner No. 18. Wall, who had his worst game of the series, combined with Bradley Beal for 37 points on 36 shots. "We said it before the playoffs started, you lose a couple and you might get swept". In game one they fell behind 16-0 and trailed by as much as 17 before rallying with a strong third quarter.

While most would agree that Olynyk's screen in Game 3 was legal, the debate has been raging on whether or not he's a dirty player.

The airports affected include those in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morrroco, Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. If a ban is indeed coming, perhaps the DHS is giving airlines some time to prepare for such a hit to their operations.

"They were the more physical team today", Wall said. The home team has won and covered the spread in all four games of this series.

The Wizards responded with more energy after half-time, but each of their mini-runs were quickly beaten back by Boston, which continued to share the ball and take advantage of their fast break opportunities. He had 13 points and heard an expletive-laced chant in the fourth quarter.

After brushing off initial overtures, Ainge was lured back to Boston as the president of basketball operations in 2003 with the endorsement of none other than Celtics' legend Red Auerbach.

He said he's found maturity to step back and not force plays that he might not have had earlier in his career. Let us know who you got in this game? Al Horford came up with some blocks for the Celtics, even though one still resulted in a lay up for the Wizards. The half ended with Boston leading, 67-51.

Wall wasn't much better, making just 7-of-22 shot attempts for 21 points and only four assists.

Celtics: Shot 53 percent (46 of 87) from the field for the game, their highest of the postseason. They want control this time. Game 1 brought a 3-point bombardment from the Celtics that has not been seen since.
