Wizards vs Boston Game 7 is Monday

If you thought something funky happened with the clock late in the Boston Celtics' Game 6 loss to the Washington Wizards, the National Basketball Association agrees with you.

The best-of-seven series is now tied, 3-3.

Meanwhile, the Celtics will be feeling that they let one get away as they were actually up by five points with possession in the final 1:15 of the game before things went sour. Washington's win in Game 6 was the first time all postseason that a home team won an elimination game during the 2017 playoffs.

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

The play in question came when the Celtics inbounded the ball with 3.5 seconds remaining and the Wizards holding onto their one-point lead thanks to John Wall's late three-pointer. Wall sank the game-winning 3-point shot.

CBSBoston.com writer Brian Robb joined Kaufman to break down Isaiah Thomas's struggles in the final 90 seconds of the contest, other concerns from the loss, and why in the world the C's elected to dress in all-black on the way to the game.

Celtics players made no mention of the possibility of extra time coming off the clock during their postgame media access after Game 6, and it might not have changed how quickly Thomas acted to get off a final shot.

While it's easy to think of what could have been with that extra second, the report also indicated that Horford should have been called for an illegal screen on the Avery Bradley go-ahead basket scored with 39 seconds left in the fourth quarter. At this point Wall and back court mate Bradley Beale are set to carry the load the rest of the way however long that may be but the Wiz were pushed to victory by the dirty work of Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat, who together out rebounded Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson and Al Horford 24-16.
