John Wall Told Celtics: "Don't come to my city, wearing all black"

John Wall, Wizards, Washington Wizards

John Wall's late-game heroics saved the Washington Wizards' from the brink of elimination. Players from the Boston Celtics' had an all-black pregame attire, but John Wall's 3-pointer with 3.5 seconds to play delivered Friday's saved the Wizards that even the series and forced a Game 7.

"Don't come to my city, wearing all black, talking about a funeral," Wall told ESPN on the court after the 92-91 win.

With a chance to bag the series, the players of the Boston Celtics arrived at the Verizon Center nearly all decked out in black suits, shirts, pants and vests.

"I didn't know that they wore all black today," Wizards guard Bradley Beal said. "But it doesn't faze us. It is what it is. They came in and played hard. We're not going to take anything from them."

"It was just funny to me," Wall told reporters of the Celtics' attire. "I mean, talking to family and friends, they get to see what's happening on social media. I try to stay off it ... and they just said they were gonna wear all black, so we knew it was kind of copy-catting what we did. It was in my mind throughout the game. I didn't want them to come here in all black and basically call it a funeral and we lose at home. We made some plays and the ball went our way at the end, and now we get to force a Game 7 at their place."
