Wizards brutalize Celtics in game that featured a near fight

Is it wrong that all I could think of was Olivia Newton-John singing "Let's get Physical"??

The Washington Wizards, who made some headlines in a physical, trash talking series win over the Atlanta Hawks in the 1st round of the NBA Playoffs, continued that trend by physically dominating the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of their Best of 7 Series Thursday night.

The Wizards beat the C's 116-89 at the Verizon Center in an absolute "Must Win" game that will be remembered more for one-play. Okay, maybe two plays that defined the game.

The first--Wizards backup guard Kelly Oubre going nuts after a hard screen by Boston's Kelly Olynyk. The screen knocked Oubre down---though at least to us it kind of looks like he may have, um, over-exaggerated.

But the retaliation, running over and shoving Olynyk and knocking him deliberately to the ground---well that got Oubre a Flagrant 2 Technical Foul and a likely suspension for Game 4 of their series.

That was not all---Washington's Bradley Beal, well, he may have committed the worst flop of all time. And the flop---otherwise known as the "Dead Fish". Um, well it worked....

Game 4 in this now very entertaining series is Sunday in Boston.....
