The Boston Celtics had a chance to take a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Washington Wizards on Sunday, but all that vanished in the third quarter.
They hope to level the Eastern Conference playoff series at two victories apiece on Sunday despite being short-handed entering Game 4.
The game turned out to not even be close as the Wizards stomped the Celtics 116-89 setting up a must watch in game four.
With Thomas being flocked by defenders, this means Boston should be able to find an open man to feed.
"We know that we have the ability to win there", said Wall.
With that being said, I think the Celtics regroup and bounce back with a narrow win at home behind a big night from Thomas.
"I'm around Kelly every day", Stevens said Monday, per ESPN.com's Chris Forsberg.
After Olynyk got whistled for an offensive foul for an illegal screen that left Oubre on the court, Oubre sprang to his feet and rushed at Olynyk, shoving him as Olynyk argued the original call to a nearby referee. I don't know why (Oubre) reacted like that, especially to Kelly (Olynyk).
On the day he made pot-calling-the-kettle-black comments about Boston's Kelly Olynyk being a "dirty" player, Green chose to take shots at every team save the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference when asked about Cleveland's romp through the East.

Holmes never catch Kim, all of them except Poulter struggled to stay within reasonable striking distance. Not only did Ian Poulter, Louis Oosthuizen, Lucas Glover or third round co-leaders Kyle Stanley and J.B.
"We don't like them and they don't like us".
Olynk has a history of creating "hard" fouls, including a controversial play on Wizards point guard John Wall in Game 2 when Olynck suspiciously looses control and tumbles into the legs of an airborne Wall, causing him to land on his wrist.
Added Thomas: "It's a joke that [Green] said that".
The league suspended Oubre for one game. Fans chanted "Kelly Oubre!" on a few occasions as Olynyk finished 5 of 9 for 14 points. "Kelly Olynyk stayed back".
"Just make it tough for him".
"I'm not sure where that narrative starts", Boston coach Brad Stevens said.
With Oubre out, more pressure will fall on starter Otto Porter Jr., who already plays a lot of minutes. "Like I don't respect that man, he's dirty".
But more importantly, there is long-standing beef here: It began when then-Wizards coach Randy Wittman was accused of cursing out Jae Crowder, but it's gotten more serious since. "And at that particular time, they did call the right call".
