After his cheap shot on Kelly Olynyk back in DC, Kelly Oubre Jr. knew he wasn’t going to receive a warm welcome at the Garden on Wednesday night for Game 5.
The Jungle didn’t disappoint. When Oubre Jr. checked into the game with a minute remaining in the third, he was greeted with the words “Fuck You Oubre” raining down on him in perfect harmony:
Luckily the C’s backed up the trash talk from their fans and flipped the script after those two ugly losses on the road. They absolutely ran the Wizards out of the building.
Washington once again held Isaiah Thomas under 20 points, but this time he got some help.
Avery Bradley got things started with 25 first-half points on his way to a career game.
Al Horford had arguably his best game as a Celtic. He was 8-for-9 from the field on his way to 19 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, and 3 blocked shots.
Amir Johnson made his first contribution in a while. In 18 minutes off the bench he was 4-for-5 with 8 points and 5 rebounds.
The C’s will look to reverse their misfortunes on the road and finish the series off at the Verizon Center on Friday.
