Video: Celtics fans taunt Kelly Oubre by chanting his name
After Kelly Oubre shoved Kelly Olynyk in Game 3 of the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics‘ second round playoff matchup, the Beantown faithful already knew how they will welcome Washington’s backup forward in Game 5 of the series.
With the series once again in Boston on Wednesday night, and the 21-year-old Kansas product felt the crowd’s displeasure immediately. Even before he entered the game, the crowd inside the TD Garden were already taunting him by chanting his name profusely.

Usually, home crowds chant names of their own players, but what happened on the night was different, and it was the Celtics fans’ attempt to mock Oubre and throw him out of his game.
