However, the Celtics planned distraction only motivated the four-time All-Star, as John Wall hit the game-winning 3-pointer, lifting the Wizards to a Game 7 for the first time since 1979. In fact, after getting all decked out in black apparel and failing to cease the Wizards season, the Celtics pitifully denied their all-black outfits as just a coincidence.
Wall’s go-ahead 3-pointer lifted him to 26 points with eight assists in Game 6 after shooting just 1-for-9 with three points in the first half.

According to NBAhoopsonline.com‘s NBA playoff history database, the Bullets/Wizards franchise has appeared in nine Game 7’s in the NBA playoffs with a record of 6-3 all-time. In addition, two of the franchise’s Game 7 wins have come on the road, first in 1971, then again in 1978 when the Washington Bullets won the NBA championship.
One player besides Wall who must step up in Game 7 is Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal, who scored a game-high 33 points in Game 6. However, Beal’s play at home compared to on the road is like night and day. In this series, Beal is averaging 19 points and shooting just 38 percent from the field at TD Garden. On the other hand, Beal is scoring 24.3 points per game along with a much-improved 56 percent from the field at Verizon Center this series.
