PBT Extra: History favors Boston vs. Wizards, but this series could be different

Celtics and Wizards are tied with two games apiece, so who has what it takes to advance and take on the Cavs? PBT's Kurt Helin gives the Wizards a slight advantage, but sees it going the full seven games.

History favors Boston to knock off Washington. Sure the series is 2-2 heading into Wednesday’s Game 5, sure the Wizards have held Isaiah Thomas in check for a couple of games in a row while John Wall has gone off, but history suggests none of that matters.

Still, in this PBT Extra I discuss why I think this series may be the exception to the rule, and that Washington is a better matchup against Cleveland in the next round. Not that anyone in the East is a threat to Cleveland right now, but relatively.
