Draymond Green calls Boston's Kelly Olynyk a 'dirty player'

"If 20,000 people want to focus their energy on me, that's pretty fun", Olynyk said of the shower of boos rained upon the headband hauncho in Game 4 in Washington.

Green pointed out that this isn't an individual incident for Olynyk. "We feel like we're in control", Wall said. But don't be surprised to see some "Free Oubre" moments tomorrow night.

"I'm around Kelly every day", Stevens said. "I don't get that". "We have to bring the same defensive intensity that we had the two games that we had here because when we played there we didn't play great defense and we still had a chance to win those games". The flair up occurred after Oubre took exception to several hits to the head he says Olynyk inflicted. So we're not really anxious about him or what they're doing.

"I'm not the right person to ask about it", Oubre confessed. The screen on Oubre wasn't dirty - honestly, I'm not sure it was even a foul - but Olynyk has a reputation, and when you think a silly-haired Canadian man is getting dirty with you, you have to stand up for yourself.

In case you missed the game last night it got a little fun as the Celtics got whipped by the Wizards last night.

His absence means more playing time for Porter and Bojan Bogdanovic, who had 19 points and four 3-pointers in Game 3. "We can't complain, can't be passive". Can we please change the Wizards name back to the Bullets? The bench of the Wizards is not a good one and Oubre was arguably their most reliable option.

WASHINGTON (AP) - It wasn't enough for the Washington Wizards to force turnover after another and make baskets every time down the floor to take a lead over the Boston Celtics.

The Wizards finished with a 25-12 advantage in fast break points for the game, with most of those points coming off turnovers. "We have to match it". As a team, the Wizards shot 52 percent from the field and nine of 21 from the three-point line, but this game was all about the third quarter where the Wizards used a ridiculous 26-0 run to bust open a game that was deadlocked at halftime.

The two had a brief flare-up near the Boston bench and kept barking at each other as play continued. "It is special to get the chance to coach and play in the Garden".

It was just the fifth technical foul in Stevens' four-year National Basketball Association coaching career. Thomas was called for a technical foul in the fourth quarter, but the situation did not escalate. The Bulls (six) and Heat (three) combined for nine total technicals in a game the Heat won 115-78.
