The venue may have changed but the animosity, which has built over two seasons, remained.
No one on the outside of Washington's locker room knows for sure if Bogdanovic will be the man who is called upon to replace the majority of Oubre Jr.'s open minutes during Game 4.
Olynyk tried to steer the conversation to Wednesday's Game 5 after Tuesday's practice but reaffirmed that he does not consider himself a dirty player.
The second-year forward charged Olynyk moments after the Boston big man knocked him down with a hard pick.
According to the report Green said, "Kelly Olynyk is a dirty player, man, Olynyk caught [Oubre] in the face and the neck with a couple of elbows". "If you do that, that should be automatic. Hopefully, the other guys miss shots like they've been doing". "We're anxious about the Celtics right now".
Wizards coach Scott Brooks said his players must control their emotions better in those situations but suggested Oubre might have been upset by repeated hard screens. I don't respect guys like that. "We can't respond that way".
"I'm not saying that was the right thing to do. We've just got to do a better job of taking those leads we get and just playing smart basketball down the stretch".
What the Wizards did to Thomas was two-fold. Several NBA players share that opinion. John Wall and Jae Crowder got into it after a January game in Boston which very almost led to a brawl. Unfortunately, Boston only has one and the Wizards have taken his shine off. "Especially with Isaiah guarding me, or whoever is guarding me trying to attack that side".
John Wall, who led the Wizards with 24 points, said he's considered losing his temper during games but told Oubre he can't react like that because he's an "X-factor" and means so much to the Wizards.
Bradley Beal scored 29 points and Washington Wizards used a 26-0 third-quarter run to beat the Boston Celtics 121-102 on Sunday night to tie the second-round series at two games apiece. "I'll watch film (and) make adjustments". Brooks promotes defense-first even for a group that averaged 109.6 points a game in the regular season, fourth in the National Basketball Association.
Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics wanted to bounce back after getting routed by27 points in Game 3, but things just got worse for them in Game 4.
Stevens said he hoped his players would take advantage of the rare playoff downtime on the road. Bogdanovic has had a unusual series thus far, as he opened the series with 10 points in 19 minutes during Game 1, but then earned only eight minutes of playing time during Game 2 while going scoreless.
