Celtics' Thomas fined $25000 for comment to fan

Celtics' Thomas fined $25000 for comment to fan

He had 13 points and claimed to have heard an expletive-laced chant in the fourth quarter. Both times, Smart, a career 29.1% three-point shooter, found the bottom of the net. That should give the rest of the Celtics all the confidence they need to finish things off on Friday night.

The Boston Celtics will try to put the brakes on a four-game losing streak in Washington and clinch a berth in the Eastern Conference finals on Friday when they take on the Wizards in Game 6 of their second-round National Basketball Association playoff series as five-point underdogs on the National Basketball Association betting lines.

The Boston Celtics are just one victory away from reaching their first Eastern Conference Finals since the 2012 NBA Playoffs. They were so much better than Boston in winning Games 3 and 4, and nearly prevailing in Games 1 and 2.

"We really worked on, if we're wearing white, make sure to get it to the guy in white".

Bill Belichick is elusive when it comes to the media, but it's not out of the ordinary to see him and other members of the New England Patriots at Celtics games. "We didn't have the focus we had to have going into this game". 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.

"They're doing a good job of changing up their defense a little bit", Beal said. And their length and athleticism was a real factor in the last two games. "But if we miss shots, we all have to get back". He scored 21 points, with Bradley Beal shooting 16 points. Thomas had as many made field goals as fouls (1) in the first half, but it didn't matter.

Bradley scored a playoff career-high 29 points, and the Celtics beat the Washington Wizards 123-101 to take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

When Bill Simmons takes over his website's Twitter account for a crucial Celtics-Wizards playoff game, Boston fans can feel assured that the former Boston Sports Guy will still be in their corner. These breakdowns came in the first quarter, so fatigue can't be blamed.

Thomas said the coaching staff did a good job of getting them ready for game five. You just have to be prepared. "Tonight it happened to be me". He does a hell of a job on him. With the Wizards making things tough for him, he decided to make this easier for his teammates and shifted to facilitator mode, both with his passing and setting screens. As much as Isaiah Thomas has been the engine for the Celtics on offense this postseason, Avery Bradley has been counted on just as much on the defensive side of the ball. He was frustrated by Game 4 in Washington.

Thomas pointed at the fan and responded with, "I will (expletive) you up, and you know that". "I do it all". The Celtics were defeated by at least 19 points in the each of the two losses, highlighted by a 26-0 run Sunday night.

"They had a lot of energy coming out in the first quarter", Markieff Morris said after his Wizards took a 4-0 lead only to submit to a 16-0 run by Boston. He also dished out nine assists.

"I was actually talking to Jay Larranaga before the game, one of our assistants, and he was like, 'Isaiah might come over and screen for you, '" Horford said. "I think they kind of surprised us". We know it's going to be a hostile environment.
