CELTICS JOURNAL: Boston has had mixed results in Game 7s


The winner of Game 7 between the Celtics and the defending champion Raptors at Disney World moves on to face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals starting next week.


The Raptors held training camp in South Florida starting in late June before arriving at Disney World.


The Celtics had to fight off Bradley Beal, who made five 3-pointers and scored 38 points, and were fortunate that John Wall (8-for-23, 1-for-8 on 3s) had a rough shooting night.


Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics with 29 points and 12 assists and was joined in the starting lineup by Amir Johnson, Jae Crowder, Avery Bradley and Al Horford.


The NBA released its last Two Minute Report from the Raptors’ 125-122 Game 6 win in double overtime, and the league said two calls in favor of the Celtics were missed.


According to Elias Sports, when eight Celtics and Raptors played at least 50 minutes each Wednesday night, it was the first time in playoff history that had happened.
