G Avery Bradley scored 20 points and hit the game-winning 3-pointer for the Boston Celtics with 0.1 seconds remaining in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals in Cleveland on Sunday. Bradley's shot left his hands with about 2.8 seconds remaining. It bounced off different parts of the rim four times, and it didn't roll into the basket until there was 0.1 seconds to go.

So when it bounced around, I was actually hoping it went in, obviously, but not completely disappointed that it was bouncing up there."

G Avery Bradley torched the Wizards for 25 of his 29 points in the first half of Wednesday's 123-101 victory over Washington that gave the Celtics a 3-2 lead in their Eastern Conference best-of-seven semifinal series. Bradley, playing on balky hips, went 10 for 13 from the floor and 4 for 5 from 3-point range in the first half as the Celtics used a 16-0 first-quarter burst to take control and hold home-court serve in the series. "It can't just be Isaiah Thomas every night," Bradley said. "Tonight it happened to be me. Next game it could be Marcus Smart. You just have to be prepared. If we're able to understand that and he's able to believe in us, the sky's the limit." Bradley's 25 in the first half was already his career playoff high and his 29 -- he rested in the fourth quarter and logged only 30:27 -- left him one point shy of becoming the first Celtic other than Thomas to score 30 in game since Bradley on Oct. 29, which was the game of the season. "I had no idea that Avery had 25 at halftime and I had no idea that Isaiah had one field goal until I looked at the stat sheet, because we were making the right plays," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. "That's really all you're looking for." Bradley also picked up his second career technical foul, saying: "I can't get any more technicals. I need to save my money."

We wanted to continue to attack and pressure and be aggressive on the defensive end without fouling -- to try to be smart. Offensively, we just kept the mindset that if we're open, just let it fly."
