Isaiah Thomas Could Add to his Legend in Game 7

Posted May 16, 2017

As the Celtics and Wizards gear up for a Game 7 throw down Monday night at 8 PM Eastern, it got me thinking, which team is the better matchup for the Cavaliers?

In the post game interview, Wall said he drew his motivation from the Celtics decision to wear all black before Game 6.

"We just came in with the mindset that we just wanted to play great", Wall said. "I put in too much work".
