Boston Celtics at Washington Wizards - 5/7/17 NBA Playoffs Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Boston Celtics at Washington Wizards - 5/7/17 NBA Playoffs Pick, Odds, and Prediction

"I had to get them back in", Thomas said when asked about missing the start of the second half.

Celtics: Horford led the team with 16 points. (22) during the first half in Game 3 of a second-round NBA playoff series basketball game, Thursday, May 4, 2017, in Washington. The Celtics lost a game because they quit in an embarrassing third quarter display. The Celtics won all three games in the first series on the road.

Game four in a 3-1 series is always a potential turning point, but with the insane home and away split of the Wizards, it means even more. Not quite the way it turned out. However, this series might mean more to the Wizards than to the Celtics. 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". The Celtics, who will host Game 5 on Tuesday night (Wednesday AM in Manila), took a 53-48 lead with 11:10 remaining in the third quarter.

To round off the teams, both have a reserve force of agitators and spark plugs who are crucial for deep playoff runs.

Considering the way the Boston Celtics leading scorer drives to the hoop, incidental contact can certainly happen. Boston has improved win totals the last three seasons, with 48 past year.

Amir Johnson got his second start of the series and quickly picked up two fouls in the first five minutes. C Marcin Gortat had 13 points and 16 rebounds, saying he has to dominate in the paint if the Celtics go small.

Thomas had six turnovers for the game. At least he never got to the point where he pulled himself out of the game as he did so oddly in the opener of this series. He was loudly booed every time he touched the ball, including a missed three with a minute left in the first quarter. He was tossed from Game 3 for charging and knocking over Kelly Olynyk. Kendrick pitched pretty well for three innings and had a 3-1 lead before he fell apart in the fourth and gave up five runs punctuated by the Machado homer.

The Wizards have a great scoring duo of Bradley Beal and John Wall.

Rozier was coming off the best game of his National Basketball Association career in Game 2, having delivered 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists - as well as an enormous 3-pointer that tied the score at 110-110 in the fourth - in the Celtics' overtime victory. The Wizards were led by guard, Bradley Beal, with 29 points. The margin reached 12, but Wall roared from there with all 14 of his first-half points coming in the second quarter. The Wizards were carried by a 26-0 third quarter run that propelled them to a 121-102 victory Sunday night.

Then, later in the game, John Wall dedicated one of his free throw shots to a player on the Celtics in a, shall we say, not-so-kind way. In Game 3, the Wizards got the lead and didn't look back despite Kelly Oubre's eventful ejection. Thomas' first field goal didn't come until 1:21 into the second quarter.

The victor of this best-of-seven series will face the two-time defending Eastern Conference Champion Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals.

Green also had seven rebounds, six assists, four steals and another block to bring his six-game playoff total to 20. The Washington Wizards have won 12 of their last 16 home games.

Five months after the Jazz coach commented about allowing the emotional Golden State star to shoot from way out, Snyder said before the game he had learned his lesson about fueling the All-Star forward.
