Green lights up Warriors for easy 2-0 lead over Jazz

Oubre could face a suspension for his outburst. In the postseason thus far, the Wizards have won all four games.

Oubre called the suspension a outcome of his actions.

"I wish I knew", Bradley Beal said. "They have to handle that situation".

A symbol of the rough-and-tumble play, Thomas needed to have his dental work adjusted at halftime but missed only the first 1:40 of the third quarter. To avenge Oubre, who was punished for charging into Boston's Kelly Olynyk, the crowd lustily booed Olynyk every time he touched the ball. Part of it was the defense the Wizards played.

Enraged, Oubre sprinted after Olynyk and wound up for a two-handed shove just as Olynyk was seeking an official for refuge. They could very much be up 2-0 in this series instead of Boston, but that wasn't the case.

Thomas acknowledged he must continue to attack regardless of whether he gets whistles. But not having him, it's not ideal, but it is what it is. "That's what happens when you play hard, but we're not going to overreact. You can't worry about who's not playing".

Thomas finished with 19 points for the Celtics, but he scored 15 on 5-of-5 shooting from beyond the 3-point arc in the opening 13:05. Or he could plug another player into the rotation like Jason Smith. So I think it has to be called differently. "Those are all on the table right now". Washington used a 26-0 run in the third quarter to take control of the game, with John Wall and Bradley Beal combining for 56 points. If they manage to tie the series up, they will be comfortable with exactly where they are, the same can not be said about Boston.

WASHINGTON (AP) - One game into the playoffs, Paul Millsap said his Atlanta Hawks were playing basketball while the Washington Wizards were "playing MMA".

Forward Markieff Morris didn't even consider Washington's Game 3 win against the Boston Celtics on Thursday night terribly physical despite eight technical fouls and three ejections. They handily controlled the entire game, outscoring the Celtics 39-17 in the first quarter and never trailing on the scoreboard.

"We don't like them, and they don't like us", Isaiah Thomas said after the Wizards' Game 3 victory, punctuating the point with a smile and a shrug. When he re-entered the game with 9:26 remaining in the second quarter, the Wizards deficit had increased to 10 points. These are record times, and as Stevens has pointed out, this has simply been how the Wizards impact opponents.

Indeed, the media should give these teams the attention they fully deserve moving forward, because what they have here is a pulsating rivalry not seen since the gritty and glorified era of 90s basketball.

"But the main thing is to stop talking about it and do it".

The series shifts back to Boston after the latest two contests followed familiar scripts, including Celtics star Isaiah Thomas being kept quiet on offense for long stretches. The claim was made by talk show host and former Celtics radio announcer Glenn Ordway. "He did not suffer a fractured or broken jaw". "The jaw is for chewing and eating and moving, and (Thomas) is doing that".

Thomas is now wearing a four-piece temporary bridge that cracked after being re-injured.
