Washington Wizards Continue Season-Long Feud with Boston Celtics


The Washington Wizards are shooting 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.4 percent from the free throw line. Just ask them. Anyway, actions speak louder than words and the intensity went next level in the already contentious playoff series.

Five takeaways from the Washington Wizards' 121-102 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series on Sunday at the Verizon Center.

The Washington Wizards won Game 3 of their series against the Boston Celtics pretty handily, and really that should be the headline. Oubre got to his feet and charged at Olynyk, shoving him as a scuffle ensued with several players involved and the refs probably feeling like they were patrolling the ice of a hockey arena instead of the hardwood of a basketball court.

The Wizards kept three defenders in tune to Thomas after the first quarter when he knocked down all three of his three-point looks.

"They played harder than us, and things were going their way", said Boston's Terry Rozier.

Former teammates Mariano Rivera , Paul ONeill, Tino Martinez, David Cone and Hideki Matsui also were on hand. "They want change. I think the Marlins, if it happens, it will be a great move for not only the organization but I think the city".

After the Celtics broke a 48-48 halftime tie with the first five points of the second half, they went scoreless for a stretch of 6:28 while committing eight turnovers.

The Celtics did their job in making sure the Wizards did not steal a game in Boston, giving them the kind of control a team needs to win a series. What you see is what you get with this current Wizards version as they simply won't have the flexibility to upgrade the roster with extensions looming for several key players.

Considering the way the Boston Celtics leading scorer drives to the hoop, incidental contact can certainly happen. From that point forward the attitude and physicality continued to boil as the Wizards outscored the Celtics in all four quarters.

Hayward began 1 for 5 but bounced back to shoot 11 of 21 after going 4 for 15 in Game 1.

After the Celtics jumped out to a 2-0 series lead, there were talks of Boston rolling to a long-awaited Eastern Conference Finals clash with the Cleveland Cavaliers. "We understood what we had to do and we were locked in".

White House fights reports over Trump asking Comey to end Flynn probe
John Feehery, a Republican consultant and former congressional spokesman, said most of Trump's voters probably won't care. The White House maintains that the memo is not an accurate portrayal of the conversation between Mr Trump and Mr Comey.

Three days after allowing a 22-0 spurt that allowed Washington to blow them out of the building, the Celtics outdid themselves, permitting the Wizards to score 26 straight points in an epic playoff meltdown. "Especially in the third quarter, I may have hit the ground five or six times". Oubre was impsed a single matchup suspension and the Wizards will have to make an adjust. It's gotta be called differently. Defensively, it gave us a chance to get out in transition. "When you keep getting hit in the head, you might respond that way and I think that's what (Kelly) did". Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Wizards coach Scott Brooks were hit with technical fouls.

Gortat had 13 points and 16 rebounds as Washington won the battle of the boards 50-38. The Wizards are -4.5 over the Celtics. He said it was up to his team to make the Wizards pay for giving him so much attention.

Of course, it'd be hard to argue against these comments after watching Games 3 and 4.

Game 5 will take place on Wednesday night at TD Garden.

The difference between the Wizards on the road and the Wizards at home is bigger than any other team in the league. But Oubre has had his helpful moments off the bench in this series, and if he's suspended for a game, that thins out the Wizards' usually weak bench even more. "In my offseason, I live in Orange County, Kobe lives there". "I thought we did that tonight".
