John Wall couldn’t buy a bucket in the first half, but he came alive after the break to lead Washington to a thrilling Game 6 victory.
Wall scored 23 of his 26 points in the second half, including the game-winning three-point shot with 3.9 seconds left to give Washington the W.
Bradley Beal had a heck of a game himself, finishing with 33 points on 15-26 shooting.
After Isaiah Thomas hit a trey to give the Celtics an 87-82 lead with 1:34 left, Beal and Wall orchestrated an epic comeback.
The duo scored 10 points in the final 90 seconds to pull off the unthinkable and force a Game 7.
After the game, Wall had some choice words for his opponents in his post-game interview.
“I ain’t going home.
“Don’t come to my city, wearing all black, talking about it’s a funeral.”
The series will conclude in Boston on Monday at 8 p.m. EST.
