It may not have mattered - and the Celtics probably don't want to hear it - but Boston should have had another second to get a potential series-winning shot off in Game 6 against the Wizards on Friday night, the National Basketball Association acknowledged in its Last Two Minute Report (via the Boston Globe).

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

Celtics guard, Isiah Thomas, put Boston up 87-82 late when he knocked down a baseline jumper and a three-pointer.

They say anything can happen in a Game 7, and that certainly rings true for the upcoming contest at TD Garden in Boston.

It was Wall who hit the game-winning three-pointer Friday night that extended the series. Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley each scored 27 points for the Celtics, while Horford finished with 20 points.

As a team, the Wizards shot 43 percent from the field and just five of 24 from the three-point line but with the season on the line, Wall drained the game-winning three with just 3.5 seconds left on the clock to force the series into a dramatic Game 7.

John Wall's statistics haven't been affected much by the venue.

Looking at the betting trends, the Wizards are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games playing on two days' rest, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last six road games.

After the Wizards' 92-91 victory, Wall offered his thoughts on the Celtics' failure to back up their fashion statement of wearing all black clothing to the arena Friday night.

Thomas made some big plays down the stretch of Game 6, but he also had a costly turnover and a blocked shot that allowed the Wizards to come back and win.

In the two-minute report issued Saturday by the National Basketball Association league office analyzing the final moments of the Wizards' 92-91, Game 6 victory, it was determined Washington benefited from an error that ran an extra second off the game clock.
