For the first time since 2012, the Boston Celtics are headed back to the Eastern Conference Finals for a shot at LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers!
For the duration of the first half, the Celtics couldn't really get a lot going, but still managed to only trail by 2 points heading into halftime. For most of the third quarter, the Celtics looked to be in danger, as they couldn't get any offense going and Bradley Beal was scorching hot.
Then, it happened. Isaiah Thomas began knocking down his shots. But it was Thomas who was Mr. Fourth Quarter in this game. The man-bun himself, Kelly Olynyk could not miss and he scored 14 of his 26 points in the final quarter, closing out the Wizards for good.
Last night was a very entertaining game, especially due to Olynyk's heroics. Twitter also had its fair share of fun as well:
After two years of being first round exits, the Celtics are on their way to their first conference finals under Brad Stevens. The Wizards are nothing compared to what the Celtics are going to be up against when they take on the Cavs with LeBron, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love.
Now the Celtics have to quickly turn around and get ready for the Cavs who are coming into town tomorrow night. But before all of that, the Celtics will find out what their future entails when the ping pong balls are dropped today at 8:00 PM EST.
