Boston Celtics Win, On To Eastern Conference Finals Against LeBron James And The Cleveland Cavaliers
The Boston Celtics won a legendary game 7 against the Washington Wizards at home in Boston to the tune of 115-105 to move on from the semi-finals and proceed to their first East Finals series since the 2012 season.
Boston was supported by Kelly Olynyk who came off the bench to score 26 points in 28 minutes of play including some big shots in the fourth quarter to help give Boston the late lead.
Mr.Fourth Quarter himself Isaiah Thomas also was critical to the late push by Boston with a team high 29 points in 40 minutes.
But Olynyk was the star in this game, without him there is no shot the Celtics would have won the game. Props to the others on the team recognizing what Kelly was doing and feeding him the ball.
Overall the Celtics played a solid team effort and will now rest before they play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first game of the East Finals in Boston on Wednesday night.
For fans they will also have an opportunity to get excited on Tuesday though with the NBA Draft Lottery taking place where Boston has a 25% chance at the number 1 overall draft pick. Representing the C’s will be owner Wyc Grousbeck.
Things are looking up for the Celtics, a lot of big things are coming in the near future for this team.
