Thursday's game marked the first time since 2013 that an National Basketball Association playoff game featured at least eight techs.
Wizards reserve Kelly Oubre Jr. was suspended one game, the National Basketball Association announced Saturday, "for charging and making forceful and unwarranted contact" with Celtics center Kelly Olynyk during the second quarter of Washington's 116-89 rout.
Looking at you, Kelly Olynyk. Like, come on bro. Oubre charged at Olynyk, who was disputing the foul, and knocked him over. "Like c'mon man, how you gonna take a charge like that?"
"They obviously were locked into him the whole game, but obviously more so after the barrage of 3s", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, crediting the Wizards for switching and sticking on Thomas off pick-and-rolls.
"He's dirty, a dirty player", Green said on Uninterrupted's "Dray Day" podcast. Oubre and his coach Scott Brooks pointed out after the incident that Olynyk had hit Oubre in the head on at least one other hard screen.
"I like watching a good game, not even necessarily that it's going to be a close game". Game 4 is Sunday. Like KD said last night, then they wonder why they call the league soft? Why did he get suspended?
"He like body-bumped him".
You can watch Oubre's video above via Monumental Sports Network. They didn't get run off the floor with George Hill (toe) not playing and Gordon Hayward (33 points) looked like an All-Star again.
"That's ridiculous. I know who I am".
"He's dirty. A dirty player". I think especially, in that third quarter, I might have hit the ground five or six straight times.
"I don't know how he can call anybody dirty", Isaiah Thomas told reporters. I put that more on his teammate for not saying anything and letting him walk right into a much bigger man. You know, just stuff like that. But you're not doing nothing to hurt nobody. This dude be out there trying to hurt people. "I don't rock with bros like that".
The Celtics, of course, don't share Green's thoughts on the matter, a stance they made abundantly clear after their practice Tuesday.
The league reviews all flagrant fouls, and Oubre could face a suspension or fine for his actions. Here's a guy being suspended for lashing out during a playoff series. Not suspending big name players is really how the National Basketball Association works.
