  • John Wall: Hero Wall: John hits game-winning 3-pointer

He recovered from a brutal first half in which he missed eight of his nine field-goal attempts, finishing Game 6 with 26 points and eight assists.

The pace and quality of play picked up in the third quarter.

This probably shouldn't come as a surprise to the Wizards, who had twice as many road losses as home losses in the regular season. Game 7 now heads back to Boston a chance to set a date with the well rested Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.

The NBA's last-two-minute report for Friday's heart-stopping Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics showed a trio of errors - as determined by the league after the fact - in the final 41 seconds of play.

Boston head coach Brad Stevens proved why he's considered one of the most creative play callers in the National Basketball Association, setting up the flawless in-bound play that gave Celtics forward Al Horford an open jumper that gave Boston a 91-89 lead with seven seconds left.

If the sale materialises, it would mark a deal ahead of rumoured acquisition of Snapdeal by bigger rival Flipkart. SoftBank is known to be one of the most prolific, high-profile investors in the Indian startup ecosystem.

Wall would tie the game on two free throws, before the Celtics would reclaim the lead, 89-87, on a jumper from Avery Bradley with 39 seconds left.

Washington forced a Game 7 on Monday after winning last night by one point. Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley each scored 27 points for the Celtics, while Horford finished with 20 points. Point guard Isaiah Thomas took the pass and was left to chuck up a prayer after the clock, reading 1.7 seconds, was started.

Wizards guard John Wall scored the game-winning shot in Friday's 92-91 win over the Celtics.

John Wall's statistics haven't been affected much by the venue.

And shortly after sinking what might have been the biggest shot of his entire career, Wall spoke with ESPN and ripped the Celtics players for showing up for the game in black. The Wizards came down with a Bradley Beal crossover on Kelly Olynyk, tying it up.
