Draymond Green says he can't respect 'dirty' players like Kelly Olynyk

Washington Wizards guard John Wall (2) goes to the basket against Boston Celtics center Al Horford (42), of Dominican Republic, and Kelly Olynyk, back center, of Canada, during the first half in Game 4 of a second-round National Basketball Association basket.

Washington had no answer to Isaiah Thomas' explosive scoring early in the series, as he totaled 86 points and attempted 56 field goals during Games 1 and 2. He's blocking out all the name-calling as best he can, and said he won't change the way he plays. He was tossed from Game 3 for charging and knocking over Kelly Olynyk.

Isaiah Thomas says Kelly Olynyk isn't dirty. The Celtics lost a game because they quit in an embarrassing third quarter display. Celtics big man Al Horford said. "I mean, we're very competitive guys out there". "I know what I am, what I do and what I stand for".

"We have to take advantage of them having a guy down", Celtics starter Jae Crowder said.

With Oubre out for the game and possibly Game 4 for his on-court antics, look for wing Bojan Bogdanovic and backup point guard Brandon Jennings to pick up the slack for the Wizards. I'm not saying that was the right thing to do. "The refs were allowing them to hold and grab and do all those things", Thomas said.

"I guess just two teams that really don't like each other", Wall said of the mutual intensity.

Washington threw two - sometimes three - defenders on Thomas during the last two games, and as a result, he totaled just 32 points on 22 shot attempts.

"They know who to target".

These two teams have now met four teams in the regular season and four times in these playoffs with the home team winning and covering the spread on each occasion, so don't be surprised if this series goes to seven games.

The league reviews all flagrant fouls, and Oubre could face a suspension or fine for his actions.

"It's just been a lot of hard fouls that you're used to seeing back in the old days' playoffs", Wall said. You keep getting hit in the head, you might respond that way.

There's nothing the Celtics can do about Games 3 and 4 now. It also probably wasn't a smart move on Oubre's part, considering he's a pivotal part of the Wizards and they need to rally back from a 2-0 series deficit against the team with the best record in the Eastern Conference.

"I don't agree with that assessment", said C's head coach Brad Stevens.
