National Basketball Association says officials missed three calls down stretch in crucial Game 6

John Wall: Hero Wall: John hits game-winning 3-pointer

Wall's walk-off forces game 7 for Wizards

When Game 6 against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Semifinals came down to the final seconds, Wall saved the Wizards' season with this fantastic 3-pointer to tie the series at three games apiece.

The best-of-seven series is now tied, 3-3.

Thomas scored five straight points to put Boston up 87-82 with 94sec remaining.

Game Seven is set on Tuesday in Boston, as the Celtics and Wizards continue to battle it out while the thee other semifinals have been completed. Neither team have yet to win on the road in this series but anything can happen in a Game 7, so you can scrap the form guide.

Thanks to him and backcourt mate Bradley Beal, Washington's season will last at least one more game.

Wall's late game-winning shot sets up a deciding Game Seven tomorrow with the victor advancing to the East final against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

After quietening talk of a funeral on Friday with his game victor, Wall will hope to put the final nail in the Celtics' coffin tomorrow.

As is the case when officials have the opportunity to watch the game back and then deliberate, it was noted that Celtics center Al Horford - who put the team up by two with a jump shot prior to John Wall's game-winning 3-pointer - should have been called for both an offensive foul and a defensive three seconds in the final two minutes of the game. But that's when Wall pulled up off the dribble with a three-point shot from 26 feet, right in the face of Celtics guard Avery Bradley to steal the victory.

And shortly after sinking what might have been the biggest shot of his entire career, Wall spoke with ESPN and ripped the Celtics players for showing up for the game in black. He recovered from a brutal first half in which he missed eight of his nine field-goal attempts, finishing Game 6 with 26 points and eight assists.

The Celtics were denied an extra second to run their final play and the situation was not reviewable.
