Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal (3) dribbles past Boston Celtics center Kelly Olynyk (41), of Canada, and Avery Bradley (0) during the first half in Game 4 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series, Sunday, May 7, 2017. But his name wasn't on the fingertips of the NBA Twitterverse for a timely basket or steal.
Green also referenced Olynyk's history of questionable plays. The 21-year-old sent the biggest statement to the Boston Celtics this series. Olynyk set the illegal screen that incensed Oubre, and the Wizards forward charged at him and knocked him down, getting ejected and subsequently suspended.
Looking at the betting trends, the Wizards are 8-1 ATS in their last nine games playing on two days' rest, 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and 0-5 ATS in their last five road games against a team with a winning home record. "We can't respond that way", Brooks started off, in response, during his post-game press conference. I mean, I know he's not like the greatest basketball player of all time, so maybe you feel like you got to like do that, but you don't like - just dirty.
The Atlanta Hawks' next general manager will have total authority of personnel decisions following moves on Friday which dismantled the two-tier management team of Mike Budenholzer and Wes Wilcox.
John Wall, who finished the game with 27 points, 12 assists, and 5 steals, was a fireball for the Wizards, willing the team back before halftime and providing the finishing touches on the victory during the third quarter run. So I think it got to be called differently.
"It's tough for me to say what I really want to say on camera", forward Jae Crowder said. "He made a basketball play, and the incident happened". "We just have to control within our gameplan and stay focused".
It's continued in this series, through Isaiah Thomas losing a tooth, Al Horford accidentally injuring Markieff Morris, Morris "accidentally" shoving Horford into some photographers, and Morris and Thomas yelling at each other.
"I will f-k you up and you know that", warned the All-Star point guard from the Celtics' bench. It's just those guys fall, and the refs call an offensive foul.
"That was insane. Kelly Oubre got suspended for Kelly Olynyk flopping". "Kelly's not trying to make anybody mad". That six-minute stretch busted the game open, and Washington tied the second-round series 2-2. He's also likely to receive at least a one-game suspension, which could be a dagger for Washington.
