Celtics slammed in Game 4 by Wizards, series tied

On top of that we converted, we're one of the best teams in the league at converting off turnovers.

Cavaliers: Cleveland has swept its opponent all nine times it has taken a 3-0 series lead.

Rapid reaction from TAI's Rashad Mobley to the Washington Wizards' 121-102 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. But with the series shipping up to Boston, the Wizards have to figure out some way to change their fate up north: The Wizards are 0-4 in Boston this season, including losing Games 1 and 2 of this series.

John Wall had another double-double with 27 points and 12 assists.

The Wizards outscored the Celtics 42-20 in the third with Wall, Beal and Markieff Morris combining for 34 points in the period. "It was probably our best stretch of basketball".

"Were able to force a lot of turnovers", Beal said. In the first three games, Bradley moved between Wall and Bradley Beal. He started Game 4 shooting 5 for 5 from 3-point territory with 17 points and was held to two more on 1-of-7 shooting the rest of the way. "We just got to stay physical, stay rebounding, stay controlling the paint and keep corralling (Isaiah Thomas)". "He's a small guy". "Like all the great players in this league, they see your hands down, they are going to go through it and get easy calls". How can you make the shot? "Just got to figure it out".

Terry Rozier had 16 points and Kelly Olynyk added 14 points for the Celtics.

The Celtics led by 12 about five minutes into the second quarter but came unhinged after halftime - 19 of the Wizards points during their 26-point run came off Boston turnovers.

Trailing 53-48 before the run, Washington led 74-53 on Porter's layup with 5 minutes left in the third. Porter had 18 points.

"We the better team, and we feel like we've been the better team", said Morris, who had 16 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and three steals. His two free throws gave Washington its largest lead at 86-60.

After finishing off their season on a high note, the Boston Celtics successfully set their postseason advancement.

The game has a scheduled start time of 6.30 p.m. ET and takes place from the Verizon Center.

Yasir Shahs 6-for brings Pakistan to drivers seat against West Indies
However within sight of a maiden Test hundred, he drove Shah to cover where Azhar Ali held the catch that triggered the late slide.

"They obviously were locked into him the whole game, but obviously more so after the barrage of 3s", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, crediting the Wizards for switching and sticking on Thomas off pick-and-rolls.

Thomas later talked about how unbalanced the calls were.

Wall has now scored at least 20 points and recorded 7 assists in each of Washington's ten playoff games.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were a combined 7 for 29 from the field and 3 for 15 from 3-point range, leaving Durant to lead the Warriors. But I can't be allowed to be held and grabbed every pin-down, every screen. I think, especially in that third quarter, I might have hit the ground five or six straight times.

Though nothing compared to eight technical fouls and three ejections in Game 3, tensions bubbled up late after the result was no longer in doubt.

Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas called for more whistles from the referees after failing to earn a free throw attempt during a Game 4 loss to the Washington Wizards.

Boston flipped the script Sunday.

But as has been mentioned in the MVP and X-Factor sections, Wall and the Wizards' defense shut the door on any hopes the Celtics may have had on winning the game, and the first quarter was a distant memory.

Washington did just what they needed to, they won the game.

Rashad has been covering the National Basketball Association and the Washington Wizards since 2008-his first two years were spent at Hoops Addict before moving to Truth About It. Rashad has appeared on ESPN and college radio, SportsTalk on NewsChannel 8 in Washington D.C., and his articles have appeared on ESPN TrueHoop, USAToday.com, Complex Magazine, and the DCist.

Kelly Olynyk, fresh from his controversial appearance in Game 3, made his debut with two minutes left in the opening quarter.

Washington point guard John Wall credited his team's effort on defense.
