In the five home games, Washington has held opponents to 40.9 percent shooting, the second lowest among all playoff teams.
Not to say that Brooks' players were passive, but they appeared to stage a sit-in while the Celtics raced up and down the court.
Following the win, Celtics coach Brad Stevens spent a lot of time talking about goal, something his team showed plenty of in Game 5 to get the win.
INJURY UPDATE: Celtics G Avery Bradley, whos been dealing with hip issues during the series, sure seemed OK while scoring 29 points in Game 5, including 25 in the first half on 10-of-13 shooting. Wall has never been to the conference finals. Boston led by as many as 26 points, which was helped by making 16 three-pointers throughout the game.
As well as the Celtics played, they know they too must improve upon their Game 5 performance knowing Game 6, their first shot at closing out this series, will easily be the toughest game of this series to win. "That being said, we've still got to play well". The Wizards talked about this adjustment after the game and said they would be better prepared in Game 6.
"We just wanted to impose our will", said Thomas.
The Celtics and Wizards have played nine times this season.

Monaco Coach Proud Of Players As Falcao Blames Missed Chances
The Old Lady will now await to see who will join them in the final between Real Madrid and city rivals Atletico. He told beIN Sports: "On one side was a team with a lot of experience and the other a lot of youth.
That victory gave Boston a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series and moved the club to within one win of a berth in the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since 2012. Isaiah Thomas and Al Horford chipped in with 18 and 19 points, respectively. While he was the Wizards' best offensive option in the first half, he finished the game 7-19 for 16 points, and was -20 during his 35 minutes on the court. Anthony Davis came into the National Basketball Association known primarily as a shot-blocker, he's led the league in blocks twice and finished second in blocks this season to go along with scoring 28.0 points per game, yet he's not always named among the league's top two-way players.
"We were on the floor. We knew that they were going to come out aggressive and they did".
If the Wizards are going to have a chance to prolong the series, Brooks said they would have to start by limiting turnovers and Boston's 3-pointers.
Guard Isaiah Thomas has been fined $25,000 for inappropriate language toward a fan during the Celtics' Game 4 loss at Washington.
He had 13 points and claimed to have heard an expletive-laced chant in the fourth quarter.
Just when it looked like the Washington Wizards had the Boston Celtics all figured out, things changed once again in Game 5. His shooting percentages are simply absurd, hitting 64 percent of his shots from the field and 56.7 percent from three-point range.
John Wall had a team-high 21 points and Bradley Beal had 16 for the Wizards. It just happens. I dont really know the real reason. Thomas feels his team is ready to take the next step. "It was just a good adjustment that we made". He'll pick one each day (except for Saturday) to answer, then we'll take the discussion to the comments. His 29 - he rested in the fourth quarter and logged just 30:27 overall - left him one point shy of becoming the first Celtic other than Thomas to score 30 in game since Bradley on October 29 - the third game of the season.
