After a report from WEEI's Glenn Ordway claimed Isaiah Thomas had a fractured jaw, the Boston Celtics publicly clarified that is not the case Friday, releasing an official statement detailing the medical situation.
In the second quarter, Wizards forward Kelly Oubre ran into Celtics center Kelly Olynyk on what was an illegal screen (and was called as such).
Oubre was later charged with a flagrant-two foul and was ejected from the match.
Kevin Durant added 25 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, while Stephen Curry had 23 points, seven assists and played smothering defense as Golden State stayed unblemished through six playoff games. "So we'll see. We'll see how good of a coach he is". Judging by the way the Wizards thumped them in Game 3, folks can understand better now why the Celtics had no issues with overconfidence after winning Game 1 and 2 in Boston. Otto Porter and Bojan Bogdanovic each scored 19 points.
Next up is Game 3 of their tied second-round series with the Rockets on Friday night in Houston. For Wall the game marked his 10th straight playoff game with 20 points and seven or more assists, that's the longest such streak in the history of the NBA Playoffs.
After damaging 3 teeth and scoring point totals ending in 3s in the 3 games this series featuring teams that are 3 seeds apart, it remains unclear if the Illuminati has yet decided who will win the series.
"The Wizards have been a great starting team all year", Celtics Head Coach Brad Stevens said.

"He did a fantastic job". "He's been fast all weekend, so exceptional and great for the team". "I want to win this year. I'm confident that we have the right people, the right tools on board and we will make progress.
Washington trails 2-1 in the contentious best-of-seven series after dropping two road games in Boston. "Hopefully that jumper travels when we go to Utah because those shots will be open". He quickly regained his feet but grabbed at his left knee as he dropped back to the court.
"Whatever bad blood we've had in the season, it's carried over to the playoffs", Thomas said, per ESPN's Chris Forsberg.
Popovich said after the game that it didn't look good, and the Spurs' fears were confirmed after an MRI on Thursday.
Green has been fueling himself just fine, and his teammates, too - delivering on the offensive side this game after establishing the Warriors' defensive intensity during the first five playoff games.
Oubre could face a suspension in Game 4 for his actions. The Warriors went on a 5-0 run and the Jazz couldn't do much more to threaten.
It took Thomas almost four minutes to get off his first shot, a missed 3-pointer. "He needed significant oral surgery to have the teeth put back in". Mike Brown and a veteran coaching staff are leading the way. If the Celtics get the two of them going, the Wizards will not be able to build these kinds of leads, and could throw them off the kind of game that worked so well in their victory. James has toyed with the Raptors to this point, scoring 39 points on just 14 shots in Game 2, a performance that left frustrated Toronto star DeMar DeRozan to ask for some assistance.
