The Wizards-Celtics series has been an unusually physical one for today's NBA. Tempers were bound to boil over at some point, and that point turned out to be Game 3.
Wizards forward Kelly Oubre completely snapped after an offensive foul by Kelly Olynyk in the second quarter.
Oubre picked himself up off and court and ran at Olynyk, shoving him hard in the chest with both hands. Olynyk hit the deck hard and players had to be separated.
Oubre also made contact with the official trying to position himself between the two players.

Once officials got the situation under control, they went to the replay booth to assess discipline.
The offensive foul on Olynyk stood, then Oubre was assessed a flagrant 2, resulting in automatic ejection from the game.
