Tempers Flare During Boston Celtics-Washington Wizards Game

The Celtics and Wizards fighting.

The Celtics and Wizards got into it Thursday night.

It didn't take long for the tempers to flare between the Wizards and Celtics in Game 3. After Boston took a 2-0 lead, the series moved back to Washington D.C. for the first time.

The home crowd surely got a show after Wizards small forward Kelly Oubre was ejected after pushing Kelly Olynyk of the Boston Celtics. Olynyk set a nasty screen that caught Oubre up high, and Oubre didn't just sit by and take the physical play.

Here's Oubre's reaction that ultimately led to his ejection.

The two teams came together after Oubre knocked Olynyk to the floor. Refs and coaches from both teams jumped in to separate the sides, but the damage was done.

The series has been the epitome of playoff basketball -- closely fought games with plenty of physical play between both squads.

Down 2-0 in the series, the Wizards are putting on a clinic in the first half and lead 55-30 with just over 6 minutes remaining.
