Wizards F Oubre suspeneded for one game

Wizards F Oubre suspeneded for one game

Added Isaiah Thomas: "I don't know what [Oubre] was doing".

The incident came during the second quarter of Game 3 on Thursday after Olynyk had set a screen that sent Oubre to the court.

Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jnr was suspended by the National Basketball Association on Saturday for Sunday's crucial playoff game against Boston after throwing Celtics center Kelly Olynyk to the court.

"Those two runs are killers in games like that, and you're not going to be able to recover from those", said Stevens. The best revenge Oubre and Washington could inflict on Olynyk would be sending he and his teammates packing after two rounds.

Despite Oubre's absence in Game 4 Sunday, the Wizards evened the series with a 121-102 victory over Boston.

Isaiah Thomas had 19 points for Boston, but scored 17 in the first 15 minutes and was held to 1-of-6 shooting after. "It's just what it is".

But the Cavaliers prevailed in what was likely one of the best games league-wide in February when LeBron James hit a bank-shot 3-pointer to force overtime in a 140-135 Cleveland road win. And they did that today.

"We just have to corral him", said Wizards forward Markieff Morris.

Green, who (in) famously kicked Steven Adams in the bag twice during last year's conference finals, and also got suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals after taking an unnecessary swipe at LeBron James, had less than flattering things to say about his contemporary in Boston.

The feud seemingly started in January 2016 when Celtics forward Jae Crowder claimed that Washington's head coach Randy Wittman swore at him, which led to Crowder earning a technical foul.

"I've been hit in the head multiple times by the same person", Oubre said last week. "I don't get that". "We can't worry about what others are saying or doing". I mean, the screens we've been setting ... for the most part, I feel like they've been legal.

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.

The changes come after the Hawks dipped to 43-39 this season and lost to the Washington Wizards in the opening round of the playoffs.
