Wizards' Oubre suspended for Game 4 for knocking over Olynyk

Avery Bradley held to just five points in loss in Game 4

Washington's Kelly Oubre Jr. was tossed out for charging and knocking over Kelly Olynyk after a hard offensive foul, each coach got a technical foul and the hatred that built up during the regular season captured the spotlight more than John Wall continuing to torment the Celtics or the Wizards finding a solution for Isaiah Thomas.

"I think Kelly is far from a dirty guy", Bradley said.

Gerald Green didn't try to hide his distaste for the Washington Wizards following the Boston Celtics' 116-89 Game 3 loss at the Verizon Center.

The Celtics made responding to adversity their calling card this season, but Boston has struggled to find a way to stop the Wizards from scoring once they've gone on their runs the past two games.

The Wizards were without reserve forward Kelly Oubre (suspension) for Sunday night's game against the Celtics.

This is the latest run-in with officials for the small forward Oubre, who was also fined $25,000 after kicking the ball to the audience on April 19.

On the road in Boston, the Wizards had a 16-0 run in Game 1 and a 14-0 run in Game 2.


Midway through the second quarter, the Celtics pulled out to a 40-28 advantage, their largest lead of the game, before Wall, who went scoreless in the first quarter, led the Wizards on a 20-8 run to end the half tied at 48. "I have to dominate the paint", said Gortat, who has been most valuable in helping contain Isaiah Thomas' lane penetration and ability to finish at the basket. "I've confronted (Olynyk) about it. That's the mindset I felt like all of us had".

"Kelly's one of the dirtiest players I know", Thomas said sarcastically. "Like I don't respect that man, he's dirty".

"That was insane. Kelly Oubre got suspended for Kelly Olynyk flopping". "I can't be allowed to be held and grabbed every pin-down, every screen and I don't even shoot one free throw". The reverse figures to happen Wednesday night in Boston. But you ain't doing nothing to hurt nobody. Everybody's got a comment or something to say about others, I guess. This dude be out there trying to hurt people. They need to continue to guard Thomas closely and make the other Celtics players beat them.

"I'm not sure where that narrative starts", said Celtics head coach Brad Stevens. "He set a screen, it was called a common foul, it was reviewed by the league, the league determined it was a common foul and another guy rushed him and chucked him on the ground". "We feel like we can win there, we know we can". "I know what I am, what I do and what I stand for".

Oubre was then called for a flagrant 2 foul and ejected from the game.

"I thought Kelly was maybe punished a little bit more than deserved", he said.
