Wizards' Oubre suspended for Game 4 for knocking over Olynyk

The league reviewed Olynyk's screen from Game 3 and no further action was taken, other than the common foul he was assessed during the game.

Olynyk's play has been under the microscope since Game 3 when Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre charged at Olynyk after being floored by an illegal screen.

Oubre scored exactly 12 points in each of the previous two games in the series and played more than 25 minutes in both narrow D.C. losses.

"That man took a charge on a push", Green went on. Like, come on bro. The C's have plenty of capable shooters, but they need to start converting at a higher rate if they hope to take some pressure off of Thomas.

What Green meant was that Oubre's angry sprint toward the Celtics big man sort of petered out at the end, and that his push wasn't particularly aggressive, but that Olynyk flopped his way to supplemental discipline. But you are not going to penalize [Olynyk] for continually elbowing him the face. Like KD said last night, then they wonder why they call the league soft? Like, c'mon man. That's ridiculous. Why did he get suspended? The best revenge Oubre and Washington could inflict on Olynyk would be sending he and his teammates packing after two rounds.

"He like body-bumped him".

The 7-foot Olynyk didn't expect Oubre to confront him, let alone knock him to the ground. "I don't get that". A YouTube clip titled "Draymond Green Dirtiest Plays Compilation" has almost a quarter of a million views, rehashing some notable moments from his career with Golden State.

"If you turn the ball over against these guys, you'd prefer to drop kick it into the stands so that at least you can set your defense", Stevens said.

"Physicality is something that comes with the game of basketball and you just have to come out and play your game", he said. The NBA has grown men playing for a team called the Wizards maybe just as bad as the Pelicans. I don't roll with that. I put that more on his teammate for not saying anything and letting him walk right into a much bigger man. "Knowing all the tricks ain't doing stuff to hurt people". "As long as guys are not out there trying to hurt each other, it comes with the basketball of somebody getting fouled hard, trash-talking. I don't rock with [guys] like that". As a result, it's doubtful Oubre will receive a suspension. Here's a guy being suspended for lashing out during a playoff series. He first earned the reputation when he pulled on Kevin Love's arm in the first round of the 2015 playoffs, dislocating it and ending Love's season. Game 5 is Wednesday night in Boston.

"I don't agree with that assessment", said C's head coach Brad Stevens.
