With a 3-2 series lead, the Boston Celtics can eliminate the Washington Wizards with a road win on friday night. Meanwhile, John Wall, Bradley Beal, and company are looking to force a deciding Game 7. With their fan base behind them at the Verizon Center, the high-powered backcourt will try to do just that, like Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, and the Celtics will try to harass them with tight defense.

Here's the latest preview for tonight's NBA Playoffs Game 6 featuring the Wizards and Celtics game odds, as well as how to watch it live online or via TV.

Game 6 preview

So far the trend in this series has been the home team gets the victory in each meeting. Boston took the first two games at TD Garden while Washington captured the next two at the Verizon Center. In Game 5, it was a Boston "beat down" with a final score of 123-101. That put the Celtics in the driver's seat for tonight's sixth game where they can advance to the Eastern Conference Finals with a win.

Bradley's playoff career-high of 29 points on 12-for-19 shooting helped lead the way, including his 4-for-7 three-point shooting rate. Al Horford scored 19, while Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder each added 18 points. The Celtics also shot nearly 53 percent from the game 48.5 percent from downtown, while holding their opponents to 24.1 percent from three-point range in the game.
