John Wall Confident Wizards Can Win Series, Isaiah Thomas Talks Refs Postgame

Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas drives
That's the Tooth: Celtics guard Thomas has more dental work

Although Thomas made his first five three-pointers (15 points), he made only one more shot from the field and scored just four more points. They also paid a lot more attention to me.

Playoff caliber teams can get embarrassed every once in a while but what's happening to the Celtics is inexcusable in any context.

Still, the Wizards should have more confidence after winning two games by a combined 46 points. The Celtics lost a game because they quit in an embarrassing third quarter display. Now he must decide how to approach Game 4 as his team trails Boston 2-1 in the second-round series.

Thomas attempted at least 11 free throws in each of the first three games against Washington, but did not get to the line once Sunday night as Boston fell, 121-102.

Not having Oubre shouldn't matter too much, as he didn't log big minutes in Game 3 and has had a poor series. Not quite the way it turned out.

If the Wizards can't beat the Celtics in Boston, this is all irrelevant. The Wizards got into the paint with nearly no resistance and despite starting Amir Johnson, there was zero presence on the glass. Additionally, the Wizards outscored the Celtics in the paint 56-38.

"You guys were good", Brooks said in the huddle as shown on TNT. I think, especially in that quarter, I might have hit the ground five or six straight times. The Celtics self-destructed with nine turnovers in the third quarter, leading to 21 Wizards points, one more than the Celtics scored the entire period.

"Definitely, we were up six with two minutes left in that game", Morris said of Game 2. Bradley Beal agreed with Brooks' claim, and added some more insight into how the 26-0 run happened: defense. Memphis coach David Fizdale was fined $30,000 for criticizing the officials with his memorable "Take that for data" rant during a first-round series against San Antonio, while Houston owner Leslie Alexander was hit with a $100,000 fine for confronting a referee during a first-round game against Oklahoma City. He has averaged 6.3 points and 2.6 rebounds off the bench for Wizards this playoffs while completing 40 percent of his 3-pointers. Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder were held scoreless and Al Horford had just two points.

Toronto posted back-to-back 50-win seasons for the first time in franchise history and reached the playoffs for the fourth straight year. Just ask last year's Golden State Warriors team or last year's San Antonio Spurs after they blew out the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1 of their series.

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

"Each game we're getting better and better". Oubre has already been fined and suspended for Game 4.

First points in each run:Markieff Morris free throws. Boston could not close the gap in the final stanza, and the game ended with the loss. "He runs around the floor all day, I've been chasing him all first half". Wall ripped a pass from Isaiah Thomas, who sizzled at the start but flamed out in a flash, and broke away for a finger-roll fastbreak. Curry and Durant hit back to back 3s to give Golden State a 92-84 lead with 3:04 left. Wall had seven points, three assists and two steals during the third-quarter spree that featured eight Celtics turnovers.

The "best stretch" of the season allowed the Wizards to come back from a 2-0 hole and even this Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Like Game 3, the Wizards won by a pretty comfortable margin.
