The match-up between the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards, a budding rivalry that has been building over the last couple seasons, has been the exception.

Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr. was suspended for Game 4 against the Boston Celtics after charging and knocking over Kelly Olynyk in Game 3.

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal, center, goes to the basket between Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley (0) and Boston Celtics center Al Horford, left, of Dominican Republic, during the first half in Game 4 of a second-round. Oubre was kicked out of that game, and suspended for the next one.

"We have to take advantage of them having a guy down", Celtics starter Jae Crowder said. But the last two games in Washington were a struggle for the two-time All-Star. The reverse figures to happen Wednesday night in Boston. Wall has 20-plus points and seven-plus assists in 10 consecutive playoff games, the most in a single postseason in National Basketball Association history ahead of Michael Jordan's eight.

The main reason why Boston lost Games 3 and 4 was because they allowed the Wizards to go on monumental, lopsided runs during both contests. "That's the mindset I feel like all of us had". That turned a 53-48 deficit into a 74-53 blowout with five minutes remaining in the third quarter.

In those same four games John Wall has 20, 40, 24 and 27 points. "My teammates know, and that's all that matters". "They know who to go at", Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas said.

"Those two runs are killers in games like that, and you're not going to be able to recover from those", said Stevens. "I don't agree with [Green's] assessment". "I think Kelly is far from a dirty guy". "Their attack in transition killed us".

"That was insane", Green said on "Uninterrupted's Dray Day" podcast.

"He is drawing a lot of attention", said Stevens.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have swept their way into the Eastern Conference Finals for the second consecutive year, and now await the victor between Boston and Washington in the conference finals. In the ensuing matchup just over a week later, the Wizards players all wore black into the arena, saying that they were attending the "funeral" for Boston. But we know Kelly. "It was just was a good adjustment that we made". He wants more foul calls as the series continues. "... It's a joke that he said that". "I'm around Kelly every day".

Wall missed his first nine shots from the floor and made eight of his final 14. He's blocking out all the name-calling as best he can, and said he won't change the way he plays.

"He's dirty, a dirty player", Green said on Uninterrupted's "Dray Day" podcast. "He ended up having a really, really great game of leading our team defensively, offensively". Oubre then charged Olynyk and knocked the center down. The Wizards led by as many as 26 and outscored the Celtics (237-191) in the two games in D.C. Green checked in during Boston's disastrous third quarter. Porter had 18 points.

Certain narratives have a way of hanging around in the National Basketball Association playoffs.
