Nobody was expecting the Boston Celtics to sweep the Washington Wizards, so heading into game four with a 2-1 lead is a position everyone can be confident about.
Oubre, 21, averaged 6.3 points and 3.3 rebounds a game for the Wizards this season.
The Raptors trail the series 3-0. Before you point to the Bulls series to show how the Celtics are comfortable in a 2-2 series, take a closer look at what is happening, because that is a completely different scenario. But with the series returning to Boston for Game 5 on Wednesday, he began to lobby for more calls after not going to the free throw line once. Ryan Anderson had 13 points (up from 2 in the previous game), and the Houston bench had 50 points, well ahead of the 10 last game. The Wizards led by as many as 26 and outscored the Celtics (237-191) in the two games in D.C. But as they do that, he also wants a few whistles. Boston still has home court advantage and because of that, they are not in a win-or-go-home stage yet.
Losing game four means that the Celtics can not afford to have another bad game, because losing home court would likely mean the end of this series. James converted a three-point play with 15 seconds left in the first to tie it at 28-all after one. Wall has 20-plus points and seven-plus assists in 10 consecutive playoff games, the most in a single postseason in National Basketball Association history ahead of Michael Jordan's eight. The Rockets hit 19 threes on 44.2 percent shooting from deep, ( well above the 30.8 percent they shot in Game 3). It is one thing to lose the way Washington did in Boston, knowing that they were at some point in a position to win.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Isaiah Thomas feels as though he was shut down by the Washington Wizards and the referees in Game 4. The tension in this series just adds another layer to the confidence winning this builds up, but the Celtics have embraced that environment all season long. Team doctors are prepared to replace them again, if necessary.
"They obviously were locked into him the whole game, but obviously more so after the barrage of 3s", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, crediting the Wizards for switching and sticking on Thomas off pick-and-rolls. You just go forward and play the game.
