Weigh in on how this wild series will end. This was the first win by a home team facing elimination on its court in these National Basketball Association playoffs.

While NBA players often deny paying attention to such head games by opposing teams, John Wall was refreshingly candid after Game 6 about his level of awareness. We made It to Game 7, it really doesn't matter if we win or not.

Isaiah Thomas' 53 points in overtime.

Monday's victor earns an Eastern Conference finals matchup with the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers, who have been awaiting an opponent since sweeping Toronto on May 7.

With one game on their home floor separating them from the Eastern Conference Finals, the Boston Celtics are where they want to be. Either the home team takes it or John Wall, Bradley Beal, and the Wizards overcome the major pressure on the road. This Boston team has some experience in Game 7 environments, but not a ton.

"It was just amusing to me. This is why you put in work all throughout the summer, and then in October, and then play a long regular season", Stevens said about an hour before hosting the Washington Wizards for the right to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

The shot by Beal, who carried the Wizards until Wall showed up, gave his team life. Washington's victory evens the series at three games apiece, and sets up a decisive Game 7 in Boston on Monday (8:00 PM ET, TNT).

John Wall provided that pleasure, with a game-winning shot, and the closest game of this series was ended with a home team's thrilling victory. That didn't stop him from going off for 33 points and leading Boston to a 123-111 win. But the guy who was consistently the best guard for most of the game was Bradley, who scored 27 points while being the primary defender who kept Wall bottled up most of the night. Beal drained a shot from three point range and Wall tied the game by hitting two free throws with 41 seconds left.

Operations were canceled, emergency room services were scaled down, and medical personnel went back to using handwritten notes. Portugal Telecom was hit on Friday by a cyber attack but no services were impacted, a spokeswoman for the company said.

Boston followed that defeat with a 121-102 loss as a five-point underdog in Game 4, extending the club's current run when pegged as a road underdog of five or more points during the postseason to a dismal 2-17 SU and 7-12 ATS, according to the OddsShark NBA Database. Brandon Jennings has also played in one Game 7; he was a rookie starting point guard for the Milwaukee Bucks when they lost to the Atlanta Hawks in the first round in 2010.

Thomas and Bradley led the way for the Celtics with 27 points each.

The city of Washington D.C. will be watching Monday night's game intently.

"I don't believe in pressure", Thomas said.

For the series, Wall is averaging 26.3 points per game. The Wizards wore all-black to a regular-season matchup with Boston in January before soundly beating them.

The Boston Celtics arrived dressed in black, hoping to bury the Washington Wizards.

I thought it was cute too after learning the Celtics' denial after Wall buried them in Game 6.
