Bradley Stuns Wizards as Celtics Win-Lead Series 3-2

Isaiah Thomas is standing up for his Boston Celtics teammate. More

The Boston Celtics, holding home-court serve, used an early 16-0 run and never looked back, cruising to a 123-101 blowout of the Washington Wizards in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Wednesday night.

"It can't just be Isaiah Thomas every night", Bradley revealed. Avery Bradley tallied a playoff career-high 29 points, Al Horford added 19 points, and Jae Crowder chipped in with 18 points of his own. "Oh man. I just really enjoy playing with him", said Bradley, via ESPN. That's when we're at our best: "when we're able to move the ball around and everyone's touching it and everyone's making plays for each other".

It was just announced that the Boston Celtics player was fined $25k for "directing inappropriate language" towards a Washington Wizards fan during last Thursday's playoff game.

Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley (0) drives to the basket against the Washington Wizards during the second half of Game 5 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series Wednesday, May 10, 2017, in Boston. "Tonight it happened to be me". John Wall is averaging 28.1 points and 10.5 assists while Bradley Beal is averaging 22.9 points and 3.4 rebounds.

Tom Brady To Be On Cover Of 'Madden NFL 18'
When Madden NFL '18 releases August 25, he said it's likely to be a popular topic for conversation in the Patriots lockerroom. On top of it all, there will be a Franchise mode where players have full control via the Madden Companion smart phone app.

Expect John Wall to start at point guard, Bradley Beal at shooting guard, Otto Porter Jr.at small forward, Markieff Morris at power forward and Marcin Gortat at center. Superstar Isaiah Thomas contributed with 18 points and a game-high 9 assists.

He had 13 points and claimed to have heard an expletive-laced chant in the fourth quarter. "We helped them make shots by giving up a lot of transition points".

"Avery was on fire", Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. He attempted nine shots as opposed to four in the first half.

Wizards are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. Boston G Isaiah Thomas was fined $25,000 by the National Basketball Association for "directing inappropriate language toward a fan" in Washington during Game 4. The Wizards have not lost on their home floor this postseason, and the Celtics know just how hard it is to win down in DC, dropping all four of their contests there this season (the home team is 9-0 overall this season and postseason).

New Chinese missile can attack aircraft carriers, THAAD
Meant to shoot down incoming North Korean missiles, Beijing has called the system a threat to its own national security. There is a strict Chinese boycott of South Korea that has been in effect since the THAAD defenses were installed.

But in this series, as it was during the regular season, the home town has won every game.

"They told me they felt like it was going to be a big game for me", he confirmed. "I think we eliminate those runs and cut down on our turnovers, that puts us in a better position to win those games".

But as important as their individual performances were, it was their collective effort that was impressive and in what was the biggest game of the season for Boston, an absolute requirement for them to emerge with the win.

However, the Celtics may have to wait until Game 7 to win the series. On the above one, he was caught well behind the play and didn't get back in time to guard Bradley (and nobody else stepped up, either). While the Celtics can rely on the fact that a deciding Game 7 would be played at the TD Garden, it'd be best to just take care of business tonight.

Former AG Eric Holder Calls Jeff Sessions New Policy 'Dumb on Crime'
Unfortunately, according to Sessions' 2-page memo, prosecutors are ordered to forget these measurements. Holder agreed with Collins, stating "The policy announced today is not tough on crime".

Boston would prefer for this trend to continue, but the Wizards have five good reasons to remain confident ahead of Game 6.
