The Washington Wizards are still alive, barely. And they have their superstar point guard to thank for (at least temporarily) saving their season.

Trailing 91-89 in Game 6, Wall drained a three with 3.5 seconds left on the clock to give the Wizards a one-point lead:

The Celtics’ star point guard Isaiah Thomas tried to match it, but his fadeaway, contested three missed to send the series to a Game 7:

The Wizards’ backcourt was particularly fantastic in this game, with Wall (26 points) and shooting guard Bradley Beal (33 points) combining for 59 points.

Game 7 is Monday in Boston, and the winner of that game will take on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.
