BOSTON — The morning routine was the same. The Washington Wizards stayed in the same hotel as previous visits to Boston during the playoffs. They used the same basketball floor in an adjacent gym to go through shootaround on. Even the weather remained mediocre.
However, the Wizards would like to discard any consistency of their Boston visits once Game 7 begins Monday night at TD Garden. They are 0-5 there this season and have not won in Boston since 2014.
“Now’s our chance,” Bradley Beal said Monday morning.
Washington and Boston have played to a predictable standstill in their Eastern Conference semifinals series, which is knotted at 3-3.
