John Wall got his side back in the series by scoring 24 points for the Washington Wizards
Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas (4) drives against Washington Wizards centerMarcin Gortat (13).
The Wizards trail 2-1 in the contentious series after dropping two road games in Boston.
It started when Kelly Oubre Jr. was on the receiving end of an offensive foul, then charged at Kelly Olynyk knocking him to the ground.
Thomas's comments run the risk of a fine from the league office.
But they seem to have a belief that they can win in Boston that they haven't had until now.
Isaiah Thomas had 19 points for Boston, but scored 17 in the first 15 minutes.
If they are going to get back to winning ways again tonight, then the Celtics must not allow the Wizards to run rampant for such extended spells as they allowed in Game 3. What you see is what you get with this current Wizards version as they simply won't have the flexibility to upgrade the roster with extensions looming for several key players. They bumped each other a couple of times before the officials decided this was no night for flyweight bouts and kicked 'em both out. That was left to the Wizards, who figuratively and effectively took him out of the game when he was on the court. He is ready for a minor league game or two before finally making his first start for the big club this season, and if he can return to form it will greatly bolster the starting five. Coming into the game, the Celtics are leading the series 2-1 and have the chance of moving to within one more win of progressing.

"It's just been a lot of hard fouls that you're used to seeing back in the old days' playoffs", Wall said. He lead the team with 33 points in Game 1 after the injury occurred and a heroic 53 points in Game 2. "We understood what we had to do and we were locked in". "I was getting good looks, I was just missing easy shots [and] layups hitting the rim and not slowing down". Nine of those turnovers came in the third quarter alone, eight of which occurred during a 26-0 Washington run that ended the game shortly out of halftime.
Boston shot just 31-percent in the third quarter and Isaiah Thomas was held to just two points and five costly turnovers. But I didn't outright expect them to win. Oubre was impsed a single matchup suspension and the Wizards will have to make an adjust. And I'm not the one who likes hitting the ground so I think it gotta be called differently. "We've just got to do a better job of taking those leads we get and just playing smart basketball down the stretch". "So I think that has to change".
Though nothing compared to eight technical fouls and three ejections in Game 3, tensions bubbled up late after the result was no longer in doubt.
Gortat had 13 points and 16 rebounds as Washington won the battle of the boards 50-38. The Celtics didn't respond until the 4:42 mark, when Al Horford scored to snap the run.

The Celtics still have the advantage in the series with Games 5 and 7 being at home, but the team will need to turn things around before Wednesday's battle.
