Washington's Oubre suspended for key playoff game

Washington's Oubre suspended for key playoff game

Wizards forward Kelly Oubre says "reoccurring events" of being hit in the head caused the outburst that got him ejected from Thursday's Game 3 win over the Boston Celtics. "That's just what it is", Thomas said after the Wizards pummeled the Celtics 116-89 in Game 3 of an Eastern Conference semifinal series Thursday night at the Verizon Center. "We just have to control within our gameplan and stay focused".

National Basketball Association referee Monty McCutchen holds back Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr.as he goes after Celtics center Kelly Olynyk during Game 3.

Green's comments came after Olynyk garnered national attention last week for a run-in with Wizards forward Kelly Oubre, Jr. "I'm pretty sure some guys might have their opinion on Draymond with some of the plays that he's made in the past. He really did flop it".

Olynyk wouldn't offer much on the incident after the game. "You cant worry about the refs or anything else, just go out there and take it".

The play brought back nightmares of the last time Wall played in the East semis as Wall grimaced in pain after crashing into the hardwood, landing on his wrist. Bojan Bogdanovic, who is expected to take many of Oubre's minutes, also acknowledged the challenge of what's ahead.

The Washington Wizards and the Boston Celtics duke it out in a pivotal Game 5 at the TD Garden on Wednesday. Oubre continued barking at Olynyk as McCutchen held him back before teammates separated the two players.

"I mean, I know who I am".

WASHINGTON (AP) - Bradley Beal scored 29 points and Washington Wizards used a 26-0 third-quarter run to beat the Boston Celtics 121-102 on Sunday night to tie the second-round series at two games apiece. I think that's what he did. Thomas said Olynyk is just playing playoff basketball and sometimes things are going to happen.

"(The Wizards) are exceptionally athletic, very long and they're doing a great job of flying to the ball", Stevens said in regard to Washington's ability to force turnovers. Game 4 is Sunday evening in Washington.

The Celtics spent a significant amount of time during Monday's film session focusing on how to halt Washington's streaky stretches, and they seemed eager to correct their mistakes.

"He is drawing a lot of attention", said Stevens. As the teams exited to the locker room, more words were reportedly exchanged between the two.

Wizards: Improved to 5-0 at home in the playoffs.

The Wizards have no issue holding their ground or fighting for more, as they've shown nine games into the playoffs.
