Recap: Summer League game 4

Behind a big 4th quarter from Marcus Smart, the Celts beat the Orlando Magic 76-67 this evening. This was easily Smart’s best performance yet, and the rookie played very well at times on both sides of the ball. He was a complete pest & instigator on defense, and despite some early offensive struggles, he stayed [...]

Klynyk shines in Orlando-does he even lift?

Klynyk shines in Orlando-does he even lift?

Kelly Olynyk picked-up right where he left off last summer, dropping 20 points to go with 8 rebounds & 4 steals in Boston’s 85-77 win over the Heat on Saturday. One of the most common “gripes” from Celtics fans about Olynyk has been his lack of size. If Kelly is going to have anything beyond [...]

Olynyk didn’t disappoint. I liked what [...]

Fighting fatigue becomes latest teachable moment for young Celtics

Kelly Olynyk paused when he was asked if he recalled the last time he played four games in four days.  He gazed towards the ceiling as he flipped through his memories.  And then he shrugged and said “I don’t know.” In their latest “Welcome to the NBA” moment, this contingent of wanna-be Celtics struggled through [...]
