It wasn’t enough that Washington Wizards wing Kelly Oubre Jr. was ejected after committing a flagrant foul on Boston’s Kelly Olynyk on Thursday night. No, the bad blood between the Celtics and the Wizards had to continue into the second half, when a flurry of technical fouls and two ejections marked the closing of Game 3 at the Verizon Center.
They then jawed at each other on plays following that, picking up technicals each time.
Both were ejected thanks to their second technical foul of the night, which did not please Brad Stevens or Scott Brooks. Both coaches wound up getting technicals themselves before the fourth quarter came to a close.
Oubre is sure to miss time for his role in hitting Olynyk, but don’t expect to miss any Jennings/Rozier goodness in Game 4 in Washington on Sunday.
