Wizards' Oubre suspended after knocking down Olynyk

Wizards forward Oubre ejected for bowling over Olynyk

Washington Wizards guard Kelly Oubre, who has been suspended for Sunday's National Basketball Association playoff game against Boston for barreling into Kelly Olynyk and deliberately knocking him to the floor in the first half of Game 3, wasn't known as somebody who lost his temper often during his one season at Kansas.

"I don't really know him that well. We're anxious about Celtics right now".

Two days rest after a chippy Game 3 may not be enough to settle flared tempers, so the Washington Wizards and the Boston Celtics are going into the Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semis anticipating an ultimate fight. Olynyk was assessed a foul for setting an illegal screen. I feel like if we're the team that attacks and hits first we'll be alright. "So I thought both teams kept their cool in that moment for sure". At Celtics practice at Georgetown on Saturday, Celtics coach Brad Stevens couldn't single out an answer. I think Kelly just responded the way he wanted to.

"You could see it when he was guarding me and when he was trying to run through screens". I don't think his minutes should be cut, but if he's not producing on offense and getting continually penalized on defense, I don't mind his playing time getting pared down in favor of Rozier and/or Brown.

The Wizards ramped up their physicality in Game 3 and it paid dividends right from the tipoff as they stormed out to that massive lead and never looked back. Two years ago, he drew a suspension for injuring Kevin Love.

Buffett cuts stake in IBM and shares slide
Buffett told shareholders Saturday that Berkshire could do a very large deal because it has more than $90 billion cash on hand. Buffett says the board would look at both options if it ever decided he could generate good returns by investing the money.

As Olynyk argued the call, Oubre rose from the court and rushed Olynyk and shoved him. When he collided with Olynyk, the Celtics' 7-footer flew to the ground. Finally, they tried what was bound to happen in the series - Thomas tried to defend 6-foot-8 Otto Porter. "I hope he got my apology, and now we move on".

"I mean, he's a great player", Brooks said. You just go forward and play the game. "It's their decision", Olynyk said. I'd be a bad coach, so my solution would be to go full Costanza (the opposite of my gut) and start him. Maybe he's doing something.

"The league has to do what they have to do", Oubre said. Especially off the bench, he brings a lot of energy for those guys. So we have to just keep putting bodies around him, keep making him take tough shots. "But my job is just to make it tough on him - the same thing they're going to try to do on me". "It was just was a good adjustment that we made".

"It's the outcome for my actions", Oubre said Saturday, according to CSNmidatlantic.com.
