What Had Happened Was: 5/16/17 Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

For Washington, D.C., sports fans, the conference championship game eludes one of the major four professional teams again. It has been 19 years (Washington Capitals in 1998) since a D.C. franchise went to its league’s conference title round.

With the Washington Wizards’ 115-105 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Monday night, D.C. sports fans will have to wait until September for another shot at the promised land. The Wizards forced Game 7 with a butts-glued-to-your-seat Game 6 in which All-Star guard John Wall hit the game-winning shot with 3.5 seconds remaining, but his 18 points (8-of-23 shooting) on Monday weren’t enough to advance to the conference finals.

Although Bradley Beal scored 38 points, and Wall and Otto Porter Jr. combined for an additional 38, Boston role player Kelly Olynyk poured in a game-changing 26 points, along with five rebounds and four assists.

Last week the Capitals were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference semifinals by the Pittsburgh Penguins for the second year in a row. After battling back from a 3-1 series deficit, the Caps then lost Game 7, 2-0, in the Verizon Center on May 10.

The Celtics will face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals. Game 1 tips off Wednesday in Boston.
