All black everything for Celtics before Game 6 at Wizards

Jaylen Brown Fits Into Celtics Winning Ways

Jaylen Brown Fits Into Celtics Winning Ways

"I wanted the city to know that we love them for all the support they give us". "It was in my mind throughout the game that I didn't want them to come here, wear all black, and basically call it a funeral".

Whether Boston loses possession from a turnover or just a missed shot, the Celtics need to hustle to their defensive end, get their backs to the basket, and work on containing Wall, Beal, and Porter.

The most competitive game we saw during the Celtics-Wizards series felt like a boxing match that went the distance.

The Boston Celtics showed up to Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals dressed in all black, which on its own isn't insane. Boston hosts Game 7 on Monday night. The victor gets the dubious honor of facing the Cleveland Cavalier in the Eastern Conference Finals.

In the last nine games between the teams, the home team has won every time.

Wizards head coach Scott Brooks and Celtics head coach Brad Stevens were asked about the fashion statement before the game began. "Seems like it was meant to be". Bradley Beal and Markieff Morris carried the load in the first half, as Avery Bradley and Al Horford continued to abuse the Wizards.

After the Wizards' victory over the Celtics in Game 6 of their second round series, a fired up John Wall jumped up on the scorer's table.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions runs counter to a recent emphasis on treatment and less prison time for low-level drug offenders . Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, has been one of the most vocal Republicans leading the effort and was critical of Sessions' new policy.

Like the rest of his teammates, he was left to get back into his dark outfit afterward. All they have to do now is actually win, or else these shots of them walking into the arena will turn into memes.

Surprisingly, given that this was a potential playoff elimination game and an 8 p.m. tipoff on a Friday, there were plenty of empty seats around the arena at the outset. The Celtics scored 6 straight to lead 58-52 with 5:14 left. Then Isaiah Thomas drove and dished to Al Horford for another go-ahead bucket with 7.7 seconds remaining. "Couldn't finish it. We can't dwell on this".

Wall continued his trend of slow starts. The rest of the Wizards helped outrebound the Celtics in the half 22-15.

"If I go 1 for 30", he shrugged, "that's the way I go out". They look to close it out tonight and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, but have had a brutal time trying to win in Washington recently.

"We don't win Game 7", Wall said, "we feel like it was a failure".

Following 3-pointers from Thomas and Horford, Bradley's alley-oop dunk in the closing seconds sent Boston into halftime leading 42-41 despite shooting 35 percent from the field. Trying to defend John Wall is a time when those situations arise. This was the first win by a home team facing elimination on its court in these National Basketball Association playoffs; hosts had been 0-10 in that situation until Friday.

In what has been an enthralling series so far, The Celtics take a 3-2 lead into the best of seven fixture at the Verizon Center in Washington. Joked Brooks: "I'm going to talk to my lawyers".
