Celtics-Wizards fight after Oubre-Olynyk incident (Video)

Kelly Oubre Kelly Olynyk

Kelly Oubre was ejected from Thursday’s Game 3 of the Celtics-Wizards series after going after Kelly Olynyk with a huge shove.

Washington’s Oubre was upset about a screen Olynyk put on him and responded by charging across the court to deck Olynyk. A skirmish between the two sides occurred instantly.

Olynyk was called for an offensive foul for his screen. Oubre received a Flagrant 2 foul for charging across the court and shoving Olynyk in response. 

Washington was leading 45-24 with 9:12 left in the second quarter at the time of the incident. Olynyk made 1-of-2 free throws following the incident. This is not the first time Olynyk has been at the center of a playoff controversy for his physical play, as Cavs fans could remind you.
