The Washington Wizards defeated the Boston Celtics 92-91 at home to force Game 7 in Boston. It was a low-scoring game, as both teams played well on defense. The Wizards had some trouble shooting the ball from the outside and from the free-throw line, but they somehow managed to win the game following heroic performances from Bradley Beal and John Wall.

John Wall's game-winning three-pointer

The Wizards shot a poor 5 of 24 from the three point line, but one of them was crucial.

John Wall made a three-point shot with just three seconds left on the clock to give the home team a one point lead. Isaiah Thomas had a chance to win the game at the buzzer, but he missed a tough three-pointer from long distance. Wall made just one shot in the first half and entered the second half with only three points. He finished the game with 26 points, eight assists and two blocks, while shooting 9 of 25 from the field, 2 of 5 from downtown and 6 of 8 from the free-throw line.

Bradley Beal led all scorers with 33 points, but he struggled from the three-point line. He made just one of his eight three-point attempts, but he was very effective below the arc, as he made 14 of his 18 two point attempts. Markieff Morris added a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds, as he shot 5 of 14 from the field, two of five from the outside, and four of five from the free-throw line.
