"The league has to do what they have to do". Eight technical fouls were called in that game along with Oubre's flagrant-2 foul.

But Oubre didn't take too kindly to Olynyk's illegal screen, and charged him, knocking him down with a body check that looked like it belonged on the ice at the Verizon Center rather than the court.

Enraged, Oubre sprinted after Olynyk and wound up for a two-handed shove just as Olynyk was seeking an official for refuge.

The Washington Wizards haven't had a problem taking it to the Boston Celtics in the opening quarters of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

"We've had a next-man-up mentality all year", Brooks said. 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".

Rozier was coming off the best game of his National Basketball Association career in Game 2, having delivered 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists - as well as an enormous 3-pointer that tied the score at 110-110 in the fourth - in the Celtics' overtime victory. Or he could plug another player into the rotation like Jason Smith. It's gotta be called differently. "Those are all on the table right now".

Wall led the Wizards with 24 points as he, Otto Porter and Bojan Bogdanovic keyed a 22-0 first-quarter run that made it 34-12. The Celtics lost a game because they quit in an embarrassing third quarter display. The Washington Wizards have won 12 of their last 16 home games.

Broker Outlook For The Week Ahead Washington Prime Group Inc. (NYSE:WPG)
It is a straightforward and popular way of assessing how much investors are willing to pay for each dollar a company earns. A rating of 4 or 5 would indicate a consensus Sell. 1 is equivalent to a buy rating, 3 a hold rating, and 5 a sell rating.

Facing their own mortality following a painful Game 2 defeat, the Wizards responded by talking a big game.

In the National Hockey League playoffs, I was quite surprised to see the Ottawa Senators jump out to a two games to none lad over the NY Rangers, but I suspected the Rangers, who really do have the more talented line up, would bounce back, and they've done that now with a 4-1 win at Madison Square Garden last night, knotting that series at two games apiece. The unfortunate reality is that the Celtics did have an opportunity to make quick work of the Wizards, but their inconsistent play hurt them in a bad way in game three. These are record times, and as Stevens has pointed out, this has simply been how the Wizards impact opponents.

Markieff Morris must have thought 'Why not?' when no one in a green jersey cared to pay attention to him beyond the three-point arc.

Isaiah Thomas has dealt with a lot during the Boston Celtics current playoff run, including a busted-up mouth. 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 Celtics said. "The jaw is for chewing and eating and moving, and (Thomas) is doing that".

Washington Wizards guard John Wall (2) shoots against Boston Celtics center Al Horford (42), of Dominican Republic, during the first half in Game 4 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series, Sunday, May 7, 2017, in Washington. In the second half, the Wizards forced the stops.

But as has been mentioned in the MVP and X-Factor sections, Wall and the Wizards' defense shut the door on any hopes the Celtics may have had on winning the game, and the first quarter was a distant memory.
