There are two words that bring a heightened level of anticipation. Game Seven. The Boston Celtics & Washington Wizards face of tonight at 8pm for the right to go onto the Eastern Conference Finals.

Few teams in this era of the NBA don’t like each other like the Celtics & Wizards. in the 10 games they have played each other this year (6 in the playoffs, 4 regular season) there has been several heated exchanges, technical fouls, ejections & funeral themed wardrobes. Making the anticipation level grow into what fans hope will be a classic back and forth game.

This series has featured amazing games from the two of the top 10 point guards in the league today. We have seen both of them have amazing moments this series. (Isaiah Thomas 53 point Game 2, John Wall’s game winning three in Game 6). But like IT said after the game 6 loss, “Game 7 is where legends are born”. Both players will have to take their game to the next level if they want to meet LeBron & the Cavs in the next round.

Recent history is on the Celtics side. The home team has won every game this series which puts the pressure on Washington to go into Boston & take this win. But the Celtics were the number 1 team in the east for a reason, they are the deeper team. There is no reason they should lose this game.

The keys to a win for either team will be the play of their 2nd stars. Bradley Beal for the Wiz & Al Horford for the C’s. Games like this is why Boston signed Horford this past off-season & Beal is one of the premier scorers in this league. Whichever player has an amazing game will help swing the tide to that team.

Expect the Boston faithful to be at full force. Expect some chirping between the teams. Expect everything you want from a Game 7. Expect to see laying it all on the line to prove they are one of the elite teams in the NBA.
