Kelly Oubre: Kelly Oubre suspended for Game 4 on Sunday

And with the Wizards victory, we now have a 2-2 series with Games 5 and 6 in Boston and Washington on Wednesday and Friday, respectively.

"The fact that we play our best basketball in the postseason lets us know that we're up for the challenge", said James, who had nine rebounds and six assists. "We just wanted to try to get defensive stops while he was in the zone and we were able to do that". Members of the Celtics medical staff anticipated the need to replace the temporary bridges, and are prepared at any time to do so.

Even though the worst case is that the Celtics maintain home court in a three game series, taking that route is putting the Wizards in the driver's seat, particularly after how much of a blowout game three was. "But they were that intense, they were that focused and professional, and we were not". The Spurs grabbed the offensive board on 32.8 percent of their missed shots in Game 3, but in Game 4 that fell to 24 percent, which allowed the Rockets to get out and run more. He did not say that Oubre should not have been suspended outright, but he openly wondered whether the suspension was excessive.

"It doesn't matter to me", he said. "We're one of the best teams in the league at converting off turnovers". "We've got options, we can move some people around".

The American Civil Liberties Union ( ACLU ) said in a statement that it would challenge the president's order in court . But Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel says to restore religious freedom, a lot of the work needs to be done by the states.

Insane is just how the Wizards like it.

"They obviously were locked into him the whole game, but obviously more so after the barrage of 3s", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, crediting the Wizards for switching and sticking on Thomas off pick-and-rolls.

Perhaps Washington is the more physical team in this series, or at least that's the perception being created.

"We needed that, we needed to be tested throughout 48-minute games", Irving said. "We've got to hit, we're going to foul hard if we have to, but we aren't going to start doing stuff that's going to take us out of our game".

After she ended her toxic relationship with longtime boyfriend Scott Disick, Kim's older sister regained her life back. Kourtney doesn't seem to share the sentiment and has been seen with the 23-year-old Younes of late.

The Celtics got 19 points from Isaiah Thomas with Terry Rozier scoring 16 (although most of his points came when the game was already out of the Celtics' reach). They turned the ball over repeatedly which led to easy transition points for the Wizards.

Celtics center Al Horford said the Wizards' performance in Game 3 was an example of "the way that they junk the game up a little bit". It is one thing to lose the way Washington did in Boston, knowing that they were at some point in a position to win.

"We needed that spark", James said. The rest of the series may be officiated in a way that negates some of their physicality, but they're comfortable if the pushing, shoving and extracurricular activities continue.

"As always, he's probably the heart and soul, the guy, he's just incredible", D'Antoni said postgame. "That's what goes on with it".
