John Wall scores 21 points in Wizards' Game 5 loss

The Celtics found themselves down double digits after the first quarter in three of the previous four games, and they led by only four points after the opening quarter of Game 4, a game they wound up losing by 19 thanks to a awful start to the second half.

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall told reporters after Wednesday's 123-101 Game 5 loss to the Boston Celtics that his team didn't expect to hear such vulgar chants directed toward Kelly Oubre Jr.in the aftermath of his physical altercation with Kelly Olynyk in Game 3.

The Celtics run marked the fourth time in the series that a team has run off at least 16 straight points, three of those times happened in the first quarter. If the Celtics win, they would move on to host the Cleveland Cavaliers to open the. "You've got to be prepared for anything".

On the other hand, the Wizards guards, John Wall and Bradley Beal led the team with 21-point for Wall and 16-point for Beal.

The two teams meet in Game 6 in Washington on Friday night. It was the latter that was most likely the cause of his anger with Gortat. "He played through it". We take him into the post, we try to hit him and run him off screens as much as possible but they do a good job of knowing my ball screens. He put his injuries aside and laced his shoes up and played.

"The great start kind of got us going on both ends of the floor", Bradley said.

"We just gotta stay in the moment", Thomas said of Friday's Game 6.

"I'm proud of him". The Wizards 3-point shooting has been a problem in the playoffs, with the team down at 32 percent through 11 playoff games after hitting 37 percent during the regular season.

Thomas and even Celtics TV play-by-play man Mike Gorman texted Bradley prior to this one.

Clothing jokes aside, the Celtics entered Game 5 looking to sharpen their cuts and better space the floor. "We lost the game". He was Angry Avery, even picking up a rare technical foul (though not for menacing any of the Wizards). Two days of vengeance plotting helped his head. "I wanted to be aggressive". "He makes it tough, I mean nothing's easy".

"Now I'm seeing the game differently", Thomas said. Avery Bradley led the scoring with 29 points on 12 of 19 shooting, Al Horford added 19 points on eight of nine shooting with seven assists, while Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder added 18 points each. "He came out and got hot early on". For one, in Game 4, the Celtics finished with only 10 fast break points. That's a big key.

That was pretty much it. "We know they were going to do that".

Added Wiz coach Scott Brooks, "We had an off shooting night". This Celtics core reached an all time low, and the players knew how unacceptable it was. He kept playing basketball.

"We had no answers for those guys".

Though clearly this roster will have a different look in a couple of months, the cast as presently constituted has desperately needed these counterpoints to Thomas. "We have a lot of guys that can fill it up on any given night". "My mindset was just to come out and be aggressive".

Meanwhile, Isaiah Thomas said he predicted a big game for Bradley, his backcourt partner. But if we lock in like we did tonight, limit our turnovers, limit their transition that gives us the best chance to win the game.

Avery may want to leave the sky out of it for now, particularly the atmosphere in Cleveland. "All indications are that he felt good after yesterday's game", Stevens said. People on the Celtics not named Isaiah have to play with confidence and an edge.
