But his name wasn't on the fingertips of the NBA Twitterverse for a timely basket or steal. "Kelly Olynyk stayed back".

The 21-year-old's outburst of court rage wasn't completely unprompted.

During the second quarter, Oubre received a hard screen from Celtics center Olynyk that knocked him down with Boston trailing, 45-24.

Oubre did not speak to reporters after the game. "We can't respond that way. The last time it happened, I fell, I felt pain in my head and my jaw and I got up and I ran to him and I bumped him". Two teams are very competitive. I've been hit in the head multiple times by the same person. I think that's what he did. I'm not saying that that was the right thing to do. "We don't like them and they don't like us". "We just have to control within our gameplan and stay focused". "Kelly Oubre!" as officials conferred about the fouls.

Otto Warmbier, a University of Virginia student, was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in 2016 for removing a political sign. He is the second U.S. professor teaching at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology to be apprehended in recent months.

There's no love lost between the Wizards and Celtics, and the Oubre-Olynyk incident was the height of the physicality Thursday. "I was just setting solid screens". It's just those guys fall and the refs call an offensive foul.

Fans chanted "Kelly Oubre!" He put the National Basketball Association in a position where they had to make a decision, and they certainly did that. "I guess you can pick and choose who you want to do that to".

The physical series continues as the Wizards keep the flame alive in the series with a win-loss record of 2-1.
