"We don't like them and they don't like us".

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

Golden State Warriors' Andre Iguodala and Boston Celtics' Kelly Olynyk battle for rebound position in 2nd quarter during National Basketball Association game at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., on Wednesday, March 8, 2017. "It's a joke that [Green] said that". And they did that today. "So essentially he's getting a game-and-a-half suspension for that?"

The NBA is suspending Washington's Kelly Oubre for Game 4 vs. Boston for altercation with Kelly Olynyk, league sources tell @TheVertical. Fans inside the Verizon Center chanted Oubre's name as the referees reviewed the video. But in a way, it makes flawless sense that Draymond would side with Oubre here. "I didn't expect it".

"Olynyk caught him in the face, in like the neck, with a couple elbows", added Green, who was suspended during the 2016 Finals for an accumulation of flagrant fouls.

Palace prepared to play ugly for survival
And the midfielder hopes to continue that habit when Palace face Hull in their crunch relegation clash at Selhurst Park on Sunday. Mamadou Sakho has been nominated for Crystal Palace's Player of the Year award - despite only playing eight times.

Olynyk's teammates were less pleased with Oubre's actions. Olynyk was whistled for an illegal high screen that knocked Oubre to the floor. Celtics big man Al Horford said. "I don't know how he can call anybody dirty". "I know who I am, I know what I do, I know what I stand for, my teammates know, and that's all that matters". Not trying to put anything on Kelly but he's just not like that. When you watch them, you watch one team playing good basketball and everybody else do something.

Coach Scott Brooks called it the Wizards' best stretch this season, crediting defense for making it all happen. Lebron could murder someone on the court and not get any time off.

"We have to take advantage of them having a guy down", Celtics starter Jae Crowder said.

"I'm not sure where that narrative starts", Boston coach Brad Stevens said.

This incident is not the first between these two teams this season. It's going to be tough, but if he hits some tough shots, then you just going to have to live with that. "Because I think it's important to clear your mind and get ready for preparation [on Saturday]". We have to focus on playing basketball. Veteran tricks is grabbing an arm so the guy can't get there to block the shot, you know what I'm saying, or passing the ball and cutting somebody off so they can't get there to contest.
