Boston battle back to beat Washington in semi-final series opener

Thomas became just the fifth Celtic in franchise history to tally at least 50 points in a playoff game, and finished just one point shy of John Havlicek's team record of 54.

Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas dedicated his stunning, match-winning performance against the Washington Wizards to his late sister Chyna, who was tragically killed in a auto accident last month and would have turned 23 on Tuesday.

The first game of the day took place at TD Garden with Isaiah Thomas' Boston Celtics going head-to-head against John Wall's Washington Wizards.

Celtics outscored Washington 36-16 in the third quarter, in which they seized their first lead at 73-71 and stretched it to 95-80 entering the fourth.

Wall made 7-of-10 shots and set-up 15 points in assists in the first quarter as the Wizards too advantage of nine Boston turnovers while making none in building the 13-point first-round edge, their largest lead of the first half.

Chelsea manager says his players deserve Premier League title

The Celtics after winning four straight against the Chicago Bulls when down 2-0 in a first-round series, won the opener against the Wizards, 123-111 to make it five in a row.

"I was playing great defense on him 1-on-1", said Wall.

Rozier was impressed that the Celtics were able to overcome several deficits, especially in the final minutes of the fourth quarter to force the extra frame.

Smith, who is rebounding from a hyperextended knee, only played 10 minutes n Game 1 and made 2 of 3 shots for five points but wasn't much of a factor otherwise. It's going to be hard for any team to win two games in a row in this series.

BOSTON CELTICS ALL-STAR Isaiah Thomas plans to get his tooth fixed quickly after his smile was left a little worse for wear in the National Basketball Association playoffs. Morris was a plus-seven at the time of his departure, and Crowder and Horford went on to have stellar games in his absence. Late in the first, Wall had to shake it off after landing on a prone Kelly Olynyk.

Bradley Beal led the Wizards with 27 points. A few hours after practice ended, he came by the office for a minute, but was still.

Thomas and Morris got into it midway through the third, drawing double technicals.

At the same time, Porter and Thomas appeared to bang heads and Porter headed to the locker room bleeding from the nose.
