John Wall and Bradley Beal each have 13 points apiece at halftime, numbers that the Celtics can certainly live with. But look for the two Wizards stars to amp up their games in the second half and try to get to the line more. Wall has yet to shoot a free throw and Beal has only taken two free throws.

With Markieff Morris (ankle) questionable to return, Marcin Gortat, Otto Porter Jr. and Kelly Oubre Jr. have stepped up big for the Wizards. Gortat (14 points and 10 rebounds) already has a double-double while Porter has been very all over the floor with nine points and eight rebounds. Oubre has 10 points, a massive lift for the Wizards' much-maligned bench. No other Wizard sub scored in the first half.

Bojan Bogdanovic picks up his third foul and sits. Kelly Oubre Jr. in with two fouls. And Otto Porter Jr. has two fouls. With Markieff Morris back in locker room, Scott Brooks praying his team doesn't fall into further foul trouble in first half.

Markieff Morris walks off to the locker room under his own power to have left ankle checked out. Wizards left with Marcin Gortat and Jason Smith as only bigs they use regularly with Morris in locker room.

Markieff Morris stayed in game after rolling his ankle to shoot a free throw. Wiz fouled and subbed him out. Morris walked gingerly to locker room.

Markieff Morris came down and rolled his left ankle badly landing on Al Horford's foot while making a jumper with the foul. Morris was immediately down writhing in pain. Morris stayed in to make the free throw before coming out of the game.

With backup center Ian Mahinmi out and Jason Smith coming back from a calf strain, the Wizards desperately need Markieff Morris, who badly rolled his left ankle.

Wizards struggling with its second unit as Scott Brooks goes with his bench and Markieff Morris on the floor. Boston uses a quick 8-0 run to slice deficit to 40-37.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

With Isaiah Thomas in the locker room presumably seeing if his tooth can be put back in his mouth, Celtics have cut what was once a 17-point deficit to just 3. Marcus Smart has been huge for Boston.

Marcin Gortat has played better in the first quarter against Boston than he did in his previous four games against Atlanta. Not only did he set a physical tone for Washington with his screens and early rebounding inside, Gortat made four shots and had nine points. He made a total of four field goals (4-18) and scored a combined 11 points in the last four games of the first round.

Isaiah Thomas lost a tooth in the first quarter against the Wizards. He responded by immediately hitting two 3-pointers.

It's win or go home for the Clippers and the Jazz in Sunday's Game 7. ESPN's BPI gives the Clippers a better chance of coming away with a victory and advancing to play the Warriors in the second round. ( 3 p.m. ET, ABC/WatchESPN)

The Wizards had their way inside the paint, getting off the majority of their early shots inside cleanly. They made an effort to move the ball and probe inside first on several possessions, outscoring Boston 14-2 in points in the paint to start the game with a 22-5 run.

We are midway through the first quarter and the Celtics finally got their first rebound.

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

Marcin Gortat has his finger prints all over the Wizards' 9-0 start to the game. He scored the first basket inside, grabbed an offensive rebound, delivered a screen that freed Bradley Beal for a 3-pointer and then delivered a give-and-go assist to Beal for a layup. Gortat may feel a lot more comfortable this series going against Al Horford than the physical and bigger Dwight Howard.
