Olynyk was called for an offensive foul in the aftermath of the incident, with Oubre being slapped with a flagrant 2 and an early trip to the locker room. In Game 3 however, things got out of hand after Wizards wing Kelly Oubre Jr. took exception to a screen from Celtics big man Kelly Olynyk. Oubre retaliated by charging at Olynyk, drawing a one-game suspension.
I said the Celtics would beat the Wizards in six games and I'm a man of my word. "He just has to stay the course and know that the other guys on the court have his back at all times".
Game 5 is Wednesday in Boston. But the last two games in Washington were a struggle for the two-time All-Star.
"We get fouled a lot, but it's the playoffs", Beal said. Golden State's go-to strategy against LeBron is to go under the pick and dare him to beat them with his jumper, because that's less unsafe than him on the drive, but if LeBron is knocking down those shots a Finals rubber match just got a lot more interesting. "Hopefully, the other guys miss shots like they've been doing". Olynyk was whistled for an illegal high screen that knocked Oubre to the floor. "That's the mindset I feel like all of us had". "I've been asked about it a couple days in a row now, and all I can say is, I've been here for four years with him watching him play, and I think he's playing at a really good level right now, and I just want him to focus on that". As the teams exited to the locker room, more words were reportedly exchanged between the two. "It's a joke that [Green] said that". The Wizards did just that in a 121-102 rout in Game 4 on Sunday thanks to a 26-0 third-quarter run that featured big-time contributions from John Wall, Bradley Beal, Markieff Morris and Otto Porter.More news: Abel Sanchez: Canelo Won't Have Chavez In Front of Him 9/16

Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens hit back at Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green after Green called Celtics big man Kelly Olynyk "a dirty player". Olynyk was suspended for one game the following season for that play, but said on Tuesday that physicality is part of the game. Brooks said, before shrugging.
According to an ESPN.com report, Green said, "He's dirty, a dirty player", on Uninterrupted's "Dray Day" podcast. The Wizards led by as many as 26 and outscored the Celtics (237-191) in the two games in D.C.
"It's the playoffs, and the home team has been the most physical team", Jae Crowder said.
