They look to close it out tonight and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, but have had a brutal time trying to win in Washington recently.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Bradley Beal, Otto Porter Jr.

One win away! The Boston Celtics head into game six against the Washington Wizards with a 3-2 edge and would love to lock things up in their semifinal series. He and Isaiah Thomas reprised their Game 2 battle with each taking turns making big shots down the stretch. The other huge factor in the first half was Avery Bradley's defense on John Wall, holding the Wizards point guard to just 1-for-9 from the field.

The surprising resurgence of Al Horford has been crucial to the Boston Celtics playoff run.

The duo scored 10 points in the final 90 seconds to pull off the unthinkable and force a Game 7.

Wall's heroics came after Al Horford's jumper with 7.7 seconds left put the top-seeded Celtics ahead 91-89. I didn't want them to come here in all black and basically call it a funeral and we lose at home.

"It factors into it a little bit".

Soler, who was injured in spring training, hit.308 with a.538 slugging percentage in 11 rehab games with Triple-A Omaha. Whit Merrifield and Mike Moustakas led off the inning with singles, but Lorenzo Cain grounded into a double play.

"I thought it was going in", Thomas said. "(With) the home court, you always have a comfort level", Brooks said.

"I wish I knew", was the shooting guard's reply. "Next game, we need to come out and play with objective. I enjoy it. This is how hoops should be". All of a sudden, both teams had to face the possibility of only playing one more game this season.

The Celtics got off to a bad start, going 4 for 17 in the first quarter and not making a field goal over the final 5½ minutes or so. Wall got going in the third quarter, though, and finished with 26 points and eight assists. The Wizards went from a 40-30 led to trailing 42-41 at halftime. If you're yowling about Horford and his max contact now, give it up. His offensive rebound with 45 second left led to a Crowder layup that tied the game. "All indications are that he felt good after yesterday's game", Stevens said. Don't be surprised to see a fourth quarter comeback to finish it.

This sort of reminds me of when Russell Westbrook wore the photographer vest before playing against Kevin Durant then later said it had nothing to do with KD.

-Neither team shot the ball well from three-point range, but that didn't make either bashful.

The Celtics and Wizards have won all their homes games not only in this series but in all nine meetings between the two teams this season.
