NBA Playoff Action, Wednesday 5-10-2017

Game 5, Washington at Boston

Washington Wizards vs Boston Celtics in Game 5 of NBA Playoff Action

Will Game 5 of the NBA Basketball playoffs be any different than the rest of the2016/2017 season? All season long both the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards have both been led by their respective guards and going into Game 5 we see no change in plans. As you know it appeared the Celtics were in for a great ride by winning the first two games against Washington. The Wizards, however, had a different game plan going into Game 3. As only wizards can do it they magically brought back Ian Mahinmi back into the fold and beat the Celtics in games 3 and 4 to tie this one up at 2 apiece.
 
As far the Celtics they do have Isaiah Thomas racking up some good numbers averaging 33.0 points and 5.7 assists in three games over Washington in addition to a 53-point performance in Game 2, but I think he needs to stop the whining a bit, It is getting old. He claims the referees are letting the Wizards get away with too much grabbing, something I have not noticed, but hey, maybe it is me.
 
I'm counting on John Wall to continue to be a driving force for the Wizards against Boston and with Ian Mahinmi back and looking good I look for them to finish this soon and take the series against Boston and Mr. Isaiah Thomas.
