Recap: Wizards vs. Celtics the rivalry is starting to heat up as Kelly Oubre Jr gets ejected
Kelly Oubre Jr takes out his frustration after getting flattened by Kelly Olynyk during the big win for the Wizards that saw three ejections
In case you missed the game last night it got a little fun as the Celtics got whipped by the Wizards last night. Can we please change the Wizards name back to the Bullets? Besides wearing fire jerseys last night the name is just terrible. The NBA has grown men playing for a team called the Wizards maybe just as bad as the Pelicans.
If you didn’t see the game, the fun came in a dustup coming off a screen by Celtics big Kelly Olynyk.
He flattened Kelly Oubre Jr, but I don’t think it was Olynyk’s intention. Oubre Jr bounced off him like he was a small child playing with an adult. The screen was just solid, and he never saw it coming. I put that more on his teammate for not saying anything and letting him walk right into a much bigger man.
The result of the tussle afterward was eight technical fouls and three ejections. I will be very surprised if Oubre Jr is not suspended for a game after the NBA looks into this closer. He did have some physical contact with the ref, and that would warrant it especially because Kelly isn’t that big of a name. Not suspending big name players is really how the NBA works. Lebron could murder someone on the court and not get any time off.
The game turned out to not even be close as the Wizards stomped the Celtics 116-89 setting up a must watch in game four. I’ll keep saying it that this NBA playoff, besides the Hawks, has been a great one to watch.
