Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal (3) dribbles past Boston Celtics center Kelly Olynyk (41), of Canada, and Avery Bradley (0) during the first half in Game 4 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series, Sunday, May 7, 2017.

Olynyk's play has been under the microscope since Game 3 when Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre charged at Olynyk after being floored by an illegal screen. In fact, J. Michael from CSN Mid-Atlantic revealed Olynyk set a questionable screen just two minutes before the scuffle that issued Oubre with a Flagrant Foul, Penalty 2.

A day after Draymond Green's podcast Dray Day hit the internet - an episode in which Draymond called Olynyk a dirty player and said he had no respect for him - Olynyk's Boston Celtics teammates threw a troposphere of shade on the Warriors' leader.

"I hope some of them go and walk around D.C. and enjoy being here and just take a deep breath", Stevens said.

Asked about Oubre's clash with Olynyk, Boston star Isaiah Thomas said, "I don't know what he was doing".

"You've seen what he's done", Green told ESPN on Monday after shootaround.

"I guess just two teams that really don't like each other", Wall said.

Kelly Olynyk has once again been at the center of a playoff controversy, and Draymond Green felt the need to weigh in on the matter.

Green also broke down why he thinks Lonzo Ball's $495 shoe is a bad business move.

"But the league makes the calls on what happens next and what happens during the game with all those things".

Olynyk tried to steer the conversation to Wednesday's Game 5 after Tuesday's practice but reaffirmed that he does not consider himself a dirty player. You have to be able to execute our game plan, and with that even being said it's not a guarantee that he's going to miss shots. "We feel like we can win there, we know we can". This dude be out there trying to hurt people.

Lowry was getting more treatment Saturday, adding that he's not "giving up hope" of being ready to attempt playing in Game 4.

"I mean, I know who I am".

Green, who in December was named the second dirtiest player in National Basketball Association history by Fox Sports, went on to detail the difference between someone who tries to bend the rules for his advantage and someone who purposefully tries to injure others.
