Kelly Oubre knew what was coming.

The Wizards forward had been suspended for Game 4 after sprinting halfway down the court to shove Boston’s Kelly Olynyk to the ground for what he considered some cheap shots on picks Olynyk set. As the series returned to Boston Oubre knew the boos were coming from Celtics fans.

He got boos early, but it turned into more than that. He got “f*** you Oubre” chants. (I’m not going to run the video here, I like my job, but if thousands of people chanting a swear word is your thing then follow that link.)

Oubre laughed it off after the game, via Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.

What Oubre and his teammates cannot laugh off is a poor shooting performance… well, a poor everything performance in a crucial Game 5 (to be fair, Oubre may have been the best Wizards player through three quarters). Now the Wizards have to win two in a row, starting at home on Friday night.
