Wizards Fall to Celtics in Game 5 of Semifinals

Wizards Fall to Celtics in Game 5 of Semifinals

The Celtics worked their way back into the game and cut it to five at the half, but it was the third quarter when things really got out of hand for the Wizards.

The Wizards' loss Wednesday in Boston wasn't as devastating as the Capitals' loss that night at Verizon Center. The Boston Celtics are averaging 107.8 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 104.3 points on 45.4 percent shooting.

Thomas scored 53 points in a game-two Boston victory but has been contained in the past two contests by Wizards defenders.

"He played like he's supposed to", said Isaiah Thomas, who made one shot and had five points at the half before finishing with 18.

The Celtics went 16-for-33 from 3-pointers and became the sixth team in National Basketball Association history with at least 10 treys in six straight playoff games. Washington, which dominated the first quarter for most of the series, won both games at home by average of 23 points. The home team has won all nine games - with Boston 5-0 at home, where it has won eight straight over Washington.

He also said that it is increasingly important that infants exposed to hepatitis C are monitored to see if they get the virus. Symptoms of hepatitis C infection include fever, abdominal pain nausea, loss of appetite, joint pains, vomiting and jaundice.

Gortat laughed off Bradley's heat-of-the-moment warning, but today he and the Wizards are laughing out of the short side of a 3-2 series deficit. They got it down to 13, before letting Boston score the next four points going into a timeout.

If the top-seeded Celtics win Friday, they would open against Cleveland on Monday night.

Besides the performance by Bradley, Al Horford also was lights out. He's been even better against the Wizards, upping those percentages to 69 percent and 59 percent, respectively. Avery Bradley tallied a playoff career-high 29 points, Al Horford added 19 points, and Jae Crowder chipped in with 18 points of his own.

Much of that should be credited to Horford, who blocked three shots in the win. That's when we're at our best: "when we're able to move the ball around and everyone's touching it and everyone's making plays for each other".

He's made the most of being healthy this time around.

Postal workers said they're the flawless people to collect it, and they get help from some volunteers. Here's how it works: People put out boxes of nonperishable food for their mail carrier to pick up.

Not scoring, but screen setting? Some of this was because they were able to get the Wizards to miss shots, but it was also in part by design as they leaked a few guards out after a Washington shot attempt and it resulted in a few easy buckets. "Get a win and hopefully come back to Boston".

"It can't just be Isaiah Thomas every night", Bradley revealed. It's often excessive and downright frustrating, but it's one of their deadliest weapons.

This result would've been more understandable in the previous round, when the Wizards went to Atlanta for Game 6. But rather than preventing a layup or dunk, he pauses at the free throw line to prevent Thomas from pulling-up from the 3-point line. Oubre tried to downplay what he heard from the fans Wednesday. A bad word at a sporting event - the horror! "I think Kelly (Oubre) did a great job of handling it", Wall said. He was booed every time he touched the ball or committed a foul.

Behind Bradley the C's jumped out to an early double-digit lead and never relinquished it. If they exited the game with a win, they would have the Celtics right where they wanted them, facing elimination. Pregame coverage begins at 7:30pm!
