That's what sent the dressed-for-a-funeral Celtics back to Boston having to face down John Wall and the rest of his Wizards in Game 7 Monday night at the Garden if they are to reach the conference finals.
Washington would once again tie it up at 89 on a layup by Beal with 28 seconds to play.
Washington's Bradley Beal had 33 points and Wall scored 26 despite shooting nine of 25 from the field.

The basketball gods must be in a giving mood, as the wishes of hoops fans have been granted one after another in recent weeks. Sure, he has a career-low in rebounds per game, but sometimes the normal stats like points and rebounds do not really show how impactful players like Horford are. In deciding seventh games in front of what promises to be a raucous home crowd, look for one of the NBA's best closers to lead the Celtics past the Wizards Monday night. Wall isn't at his best firing from beyond the arc - and he started the game 1 of 12 from the field. "Avery did a heck of a job on (Wall) all night but he has that confidence to take that shot". Al Horford chimed in with 20 markers. Prior to Washington's Game 6 victory, home teams facing elimination were just 1-10 this postseason.
Washington countered with the help of a superb backcourt.
"I know when he got the ball he was shooting, " said Wall's teammate, Markieff Morris. The Wizards' other starting forward, Otto Porter, was scoreless in 36 minutes.
Gerald Green, who blasted the Wizards earlier in the series, promising reporters that the Celtics were 'Gonna beat their a** in Game 4, suddenly became puzzled, pretending that the Celtics all black attire wasn't planned and rather a coincidence.

In Game 6, the Wizards found some life in a choppy first half, turning a 28-28 tie into a 40-30 lead on Jason Smith's free throw with 3:46 remaining. Kelly Oubre Jr. fouled Kelly Olynyk on the floor to stop him from taking the game back, and it ended up being an unsung play of the game as the Wizards still had a foul to give. He scored 13 in the period as Washington entered the fourth trailing 69-66. The Celtics wanted to host the funeral for the Washington Wizards' season, a nod to what the Wizards wore during a regular-season meeting between teams who share animus toward one another.
