Washington Wizards guard John Wall hit one of the biggest shots in franchise history in Game 6 to save the team’s season. Now the team plays the pivotal Game 7 in Boston on Monday night. What are the keys to the game for the Wizards?

In a series where the home team is 10-0 through the regular season and playoffs, the deciding Game 7 takes place in Boston. While Washington would prefer to play in front of its home crowd, there’s many aspects to playing a Game 7 on the road that will be exciting to the Wizards.

With the quickly developing rivalry between the two teams, getting a chance to end the other’s season in front of its home fans will be an enticing opportunity. Boston had the chance to complete the same feat on Friday, but John Wall ended those hopes with his electric game winning three pointer.

To advance and keep their hopes alive, the Wizards will need to play focused, sharp, and limit some mistakes that have crushed the team throughout this series.
