"Avery was on fire", Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. The Celtics get it done in 6. Against a team as good as Boston, before you blink it can be over.
Heated disagreements aren't uncommon around the league, either; the Golden State Warriors made headlines for a vicious locker room spat in February 2016, midway through a season in which they won an NBA-record 73 games. The last player other than Thomas to score 30 for Boston was Bradley on October 29.
Washingtons John Wall is a blur who has personally dragged his team on 20-0 runs that turn close games to routs and make the Celtics look like the Generals. He continued to stay aggressive and drive to the basket, but for the most part was unable to get around his defender.
In game five the Celtics not only came in with the mentality that this was the biggest game of their careers, but they put together the best game this team has every played together. We take him into the post, we try to hit him and run him off screens as much as possible but they do a good job of knowing my ball screens. That's another troubling development for the Wizards: All the Celtics' role players are engaged again. But according to Avery Bradley, that's exactly what happened. In the first half! In fact, the Washington Wizards guard says he's looking forward to them. They didn't disappoint, and it was Bradley doing most of the damage. Al Horford helped prevent Boston's lead from becoming less and scored 8 points. Neither team has won an away game so far in this series.
He said he's found maturity to step back and not force plays that he might not have had earlier in his career. Wall noted that the Wizards limited Boston to only four transition points after the opening quarter, but by then the result had been cast. The Celtics went into halftime up 16 on the Wizards with a score of 67-51.
Besides the performance by Bradley, Al Horford also was lights out. I'm proud of him. For one, in Game 4, the Celtics finished with only 10 fast break points. The next two, or perhaps three, games will determine the narrative for this team as well as the Boston Celtics teams to come in the years ahead.
They certainly did that Wednesday night. Thomas hadn't scored less than 20 in any consecutive games during the regular season. The Washington Wizards are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.5 rebounds per game.
The Wizards shot 38.5 percent and 7-of-29 from beyond the arc.
It's been blowout basketball all over the second round, where Cleveland didn't even trail in the fourth quarter against Toronto until it was in the midst of finishing a sweep Sunday with a 109-102 victory. His only game with less assists was on November 11th against Cleveland (3 assists). However, I think Washington wins Games 6 and 7.
As the Wizards face the most important game in franchise history in almost 40 years, the Wizards need to treat this as such. The Boston Celtics have won five of their last seven home games. However, the Celtics were very lucky to win Game 2. Boston bested Washington in all three. "We made it in the game and we stopped it but we were already down 16". This was the Wizards lowest point total since Game 4 against Atlanta.
The Boston Celtics controlled Wednesday's Game 5 from the jump. Let's hope that streak doesn't continue on Friday.
It is done, and I will be fine, although I will miss you and the mission deeply", Comey said in a letter to agents and colleagues. In his first remarks since firing Comey , President Trump said, "He wasn't doing a good job".
For instance, the AARP is lobbying against changes to how insurers price plans that are sold to older Americans. Trump tweeted from his private golf course in central New Jersey, where he has stayed since late Thursday.
Based on overall profits, roughly 85 percent of the net income reported by the group was taxed at less than the 35 percent rate. Fourth, the tax plan - especially when coupled with Trump's budget proposals - is enormously regressive.
Playing in Game 7 at home for the fourth straight season, Anaheim has been outscored 8-0 in the first period of those games. Even though 97 was kept off the scoresheet in that 7-1 rout, he was as risky as ever and teams have to respect that.
But the Spurs and Rockets did play four tight games in the regular season, with three decided by two-point margins. The Rockets will no doubt be looking for revenge after their loss in game 3 , a game everyone said they would win.
But there hasn't been much fun in being a Browns fan in recent years, especially during last year's 1-15 season. Garrett wasn't anxious because head coach Hue Jackson told him he would be the first pick a couple weeks ago.

Washington is one of the best fast break teams in the NBA, so it is extremely important to take care of the basketball on offense. Both know their roles and do it well as they have recorded career-highs in field goal- and three-point percentage.

Penguins chase Holtby, beat Capitals to take 2-0 series lead
Presidents' Trophy winners the Capitals, who have a knack for wilting in the postseason, find themselves in a 2-0 series hole. After watching that game, I do not think people have been fairly rating the Penguin's - without Letang they're screwed.

Portland's Nurkic out Game 2, Warriors' Durant questionable
I love the player, and he is capable of carrying this team to a title, but there's not room for him on my DFS roster this evening. Also, in the Game 1 , the Blazers Damian Lillard added 34 points on 12-26 shooting and CJ McCollum had 41 points on 16-28.
