John Wall, Wizards blow out Celtics again, series tied

Excessive rain can rattle already packed snow. After his 0-9 start, he shot 50 percent from the floor. Washington went on to win Game 4, 121-102, evening the series at two wins apiece as both teams will head to Boston for Game 5 on Wednesday(8:00 p.m. EST, TNT). With Game 5 in Boston on Wednesday, here are some takeaways from the Game 4 win. Since the Wizards left there, the feeling around the matchup has taken a decided turn.

The bottom fell out as Washington scored the next 26 points to effectively seal the game and ensure there will be at least two more games in the series.

Each team has held serve on their home court in the 2-2 regular-season series and now in the playoffs. "Their attack in transition killed us". "Ryan, Lou, Eric, Trevor, Pat, and if we're going to have a chance at this series they're going to have to make plays, and they did tonight".

Game four in a 3-1 series is always a potential turning point, but with the insane home and away split of the Wizards, it means even more. His suspension will likely mean more run for the Washington starters, and possibly more playing time for reserve Bojan Bogdanovic.

The 5-foot-9 guard started white hot in Game 4 but attempted only one 3-pointer over the final 35 minutes and never got to the free-throw line. Afterward, a sudden and sustained surge of dominance came.

The Wizards broke out to another fast start with an 8-0 run to start the game. By the end, Washington was in front, 74-53. "We can't have that", said Wizards coach Scott Brooks.

It is a game that the Celtics may not want to remember, but they will have to learn from their mistakes.

We just have to take better care of those leads we get, just play smart basketball down the stretch. "We talked about that many times". By halftime, the game was tied at 48.

SALT LAKE CITY - Kevin Durant had 38 points and 13 rebounds as Golden State beat Utah to take a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinal series.

Celtics' all star Isaiah Thomas has been remarkable, but his supporting cast has been uneven through three games.

The first quarter of Game 4 could dictate where this game eventually ends up. To make matters worse, Isaiah Thomas appeared to be returning to his 53-point form from Game 2, by hitting all three of his 3-points. Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) takes a shot as Toronto Raptors forward P.J. Tucker (2), center Jonas Valanciunas (17) and Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson (13) look on during second half National Basketball Association playo. Wall had seven points, three assists and two steals during the third-quarter spree that featured eight Celtics turnovers.

Curry finished with 23 points on 6-for-20 shooting. Fortunately for the Washington, just last contest they added big man Ian Mahinmi back to their rotation after his recovery from a calf strain.

During Thomas' early ascension, Wall scuffled.

"The fact that we play our best basketball in the postseason lets us know that we're up for the challenge", said James, who had nine rebounds and six assists. The Celtics constructed a 13-point lead during his inaccurate shooting. They also didn't slow the Rockets transition game.

"Definitely, we were up six with two minutes left in that game", Morris said of Game 2.

Wall's resurrection began when he checked back in with the Wizards in trouble in the second quarter. I'm not the one who likes hitting the ground. Wall was able to fuel the pace and himself.

With tonight's win, the Wizards now move to 21-5 at home since January 1, including a ideal 4-0 at home during the playoffs.

But they seem to have a belief that they can win in Boston that they haven't had until now.
