Wizards’ Kelly Oubre Jr. ejected from game three for bodying Celtics’ Kelly Olynyk

Kelly-on-Kelly crime, of the assault variety, occurred in the midst of game three.

Early in the second quarter, as the Wizards were literally running away with the game on a ferocious fast-break attack, tensions finally unleashed into fury.

Kelly Olynyk slipped off a screen on Kelly Oubre Jr., leaving the latter bodied on the ground. It was just one of countless physical interactions between these two teams to this point. Then, Oubre took it to the next level.

He rushed Olynyk, who was standing next to a referee, and shoved him to the ground as the play turned to the other end. The teams swarmed and minutes later Oubre was sent to the showers.

This almost certainly warrants a suspension. We will await word from the league. It was a strange encounter to say the least.
