Wizards' Oubre suspended for Game 4 for knocking over Olynyk

The Washington Wizards earned their first win Thursday night in the fierce Eastern Conference semifinals against the Boston Celtics as the bad blood continues to grow heading into Game 4 of the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs especially after Kelly Oubre Jr. was ejected for pushing Kelly Olynck.

Green sent a tweet shortly after Thomas's comments apparently directed at the Celtics guard. That was superseded in might and awe by Sunday's 26-0 run that lasted more than half of the third quarter in Game 4. This strategy causes Thomas to have to pass out of his double team and make the other Celtics make plays, which has yielded a lot of missed shots and a multitude of turnovers. They wanted to blow them out. Even though they carry the No. 1 seed and will host the first two games in Boston, my bet is they're still lacking If they somehow do miraculously skate by the Cavs, it'll add another layer of smack talk to the NBA Finals.

"If they want to go small I have to dominate".

Not saying thats the reason that we lost, Thomas continued. Washington never led by 50, but after trailing 53-48 early in the third, it was 74-53 by the time Porter made a layup with 5 minutes left in the quarter. Washington coach Scott Brooks was asked Tuesday about what advice he had for Oubre.

Beal found his shooting touch and led all scorers with 29 points, going 11-for-16 from the field. "We've got options, we can move some people around".

"We just have to corral him", Morris explained after Game 4 about Thomas.




Wall's proven ability to step it up in the postseason has separated himself from other "best point guard" contenders like Isaiah Thomas. While most fans agreed with that take, they couldn't help but point out the irony when he said, "I don't respect guys like that". "Their attack in transition killed us".

"We know that we have the ability to win there", said Wall. The bench of the Wizards is not a good one and Oubre was arguably their most reliable option. "We feel like we can guard them in the half court, but we tend to turn the ball over in spurts, and they capitalize well on it". We know that we have the ability to win there. "I'm pretty sure some guys might have their opinion on Draymond with some of the plays that he's made in the past". Both were hard picks, and he got called for an offensive foul on the one right before the incident. "I can't be allowed to be held and grabbed every pin-down, every screen and I don't even shoot one free throw". Wall finished the quarter with 14 points, including a stretch where he scored nine straight points for the Wizards. He said he knew he had to be aggressive, and Brooks was never anxious about the All-Star guard losing his confidence or passing up good looks.

Deadspin headlined their piece: Draymond Green Denounces Kelly Olynyk For Dirty Play, Somehow Does Not Choke On The Irony. "He ended up having a really, really great game of leading our team defensively, offensively".

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics wanted to bounce back after getting routed by27 points in Game 3, but things just got worse for them in Game 4. After footage of his contact with Olynyk went viral on Twitter and Instagram, Oubre joked his financial adviser told him he got some inquiries from the NFL. The Wizards emerged with a 121-102 triumph that sends the series back to Boston tied 2-2.

Wizards: Improved to 5-0 at home in the playoffs. Washington did not give up a Boston field goal for seven minutes and forced six turnovers in the quarter. Porter had 18 points.
