The Washington Wizards delivered a statement Game 3 win over the Boston Celtics 116-89. Washington dominated from the first quarter with a 22-0 run. Unlike Games 1 and 2 when Washington had a lead, Boston could not fight their way back into this one. John Wall led the way with 24 points and 8 assists.
Kelly Oubre was ejected for shoving Kelly Olynyk to the floor in the second quarter following a screen by Olynyk that sent Oubre to the floor. The Wizards will have a chance to even the series and start fresh if they can win Game 4 at home on Sunday evening.
