Wizards' Oubre suspended for Game 4 for knocking over Olynyk

In the second quarter, he gave a very hard screen with a combination of what seemed like the "People's Elbow", which obliterated Washington's Kelly Oubre Jr. "That's why we're able to get out in transition and get open shots, get open layups". We feel like we can win there.

On Friday, the Celtics said Thomas had two other damaged teeth that required "extensive oral surgery to stabilize" and added that he "did not suffer a fractured or broken jaw". He had 16 points and 13 boards in Game 1, and 14 points and 10 boards in Game 2. As the series heads a few miles east to Houston, we're bound to see a much different type of game. This time it was the Celtics who lost a 12-point first-half lead to find themselves tied at 48 at the break. That comes after his 53-point night in Game 2's overtime win. After scoring 17 points in first 15 minutes, he finished with just 19. As the Raptors head back home for Game 3, hopefully they can find DeMar DeRozan who went missing in Game 2.

Hard fouls were part of the first two games of the series, but nothing like Game 3, as Celtics center Al Horford described the Wizards play as "the way that they junk the game up a little bit". In addition to Oubre's shove, the aggressiveness cost Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas a front tooth courtesy of an Otto Porter Jr. elbow. He said he had never dealt with the injury before; it's just a freak coincidence that he suffered two in the same week. Gerald Green started in place of Amir Johnson after not playing in Game 2 and had eight points. "It's not something you focus on, you just go out there and play the next game". He's one of the best defenders in the league. Once play resumed in the third quarter, Washington beat Boston into submission behind the stellar play of Wall and Bradley Beal. But free throws serve as an opportunity for a team to stabilize itself. By keeping their hands up rather than outward, they didn't get whistles going against them.

John Wall and Bradley Beal combined for 56 points in Game 4.

"We know that we have the ability to win there", Wall said of Boston. "He ended up having a really, really great game of leading our team defensively, offensively".
