Kelly vs Kelly: Wizards-Celtics Game 3 turns into shoving contest

Adjust Comment Print

Celtics center Kelly Olynyk set a pick on Wizards' Kelly Oubre, and Olynyk appeared to throw his elbow into Oubre's throat.

Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr. has been ejected from Game 3 against the Boston Celtics for charging at Kelly Olynyk and knocking him over.

Olynyk was also asked what he thought about the Wizards physicality and if Oubre should be suspended, but if he had any thoughts on that he kept pretty quiet saying it wasn't up to him and that the Wizards played "well".

For a series that had been relatively tame over the first two games, the dislike between the two teams resurfaced on Thursday night. "We just have to control within our gameplan and stay focused".

Protests against President Nicolas Maduro called the economic policy of the government and a sharp decline in living standards. It will draw up a new constitution "so that our people. with their voice can decide the destiny of our homeland", he said.

Asked about Oubre's clash with Olynyk, Boston star Isaiah Thomas said, "I don't know what he was doing".

The chippy game included two more ejections beyond Oubre's and a total of eight technical fouls. "I was just setting solid screens". Jackson predicted the league offices would not suspend Oubre for Game 4 of the series, but anticipated a fine coming the second-year forward's way.

"We just have to play basketball the way we play, both ends of the floor tough and smart".
