Tuesday night provided many NBA fans with great playoff basketball. The Boston Celtics took on the Washington Wizards at home in game 2 of the eastern conference semifinals. John Wall and Bradly Beal planned to steal the second game of the series with hopes of keeping their playoff run alive.

The Celtics were able to steal the first game of the series with a victory of 123-111. The Celtics came ready to play again in game two as they forced the game into overtime and never looked back.

Isaiah Thomas was on fire!

It is no surprise that the Celtics’ point guard isaiah thomas is a scoring machine. The five-foot-nine-inch guard averaged close to 30 points a game as he helped lead his team to the first seed in the NBA Eastern Conference standings.

During Tuesday night’s performance, Isaiah was cold blooded.

He was able to score 27 points in the 4th quarter and overtime which propelled the Celtics to a well-deserved win in game 2 of the series. The Wizards could not provide answers for Thomas, and it showed as time began to expire and the hopes of winning decreased for the Washington. Thomas finished the game with 53 points and four assists.

Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley were also able to help contribute to the win by providing a total of 29 points combined. The highest individual shooting percentage of the night was 55 percent which was held by no one other Isaiah Thomas. The Wizards simply did not have answers for the hungry point guard as he almost single-handedly defeated John Wall and the Wizards.

Just could not finish...

The Washington Wizards did not play a bad game. The team finished with seven players bringing in double-digit points. John Wall led the offensive charge. He was able to score a team high of 40 points. Wall also shot 50 percent from the field as he tried to hold the Celtics off the best he knew how.

Bradley Beal was unable to provide points the way he usually does.

He finished the night with only14 points and shot a horrible 26 percent from the field. Markieff Morris picked up the slack by contributing 16 points in his way. When Bradley Beal is unable to produce points, the Wizards are not the same team.

The role of scoring falls on a teammate that is not equipped with the necessary skills to score at the same offensive rate. If Beal was able to score more efficiently, the Wizards would have had a better chance of pulling off a win.

Game 3 is a must-win

Game 3 is simply a must win the game for the Washington Wizards. They cannot fall behind three games especially when Isaiah Thomas has proven that he is ready to play. The next game will be played in Washington, and the Wizards need to impress their home fans.

John Wall has continued to play good minutes, but he needs his shooting guard to step up as well. If Bradley Beal is unable to provide points for the struggling Wizards, the team might have their work cut out for them in the games that remain ahead.
