Kelly Olynyk stepped up his game on Friday, chipping in 24 points on 9-of-16 shooting, adding nine rebounds, three triples and two assists in 37 minutes off the bench.
Olynyk was a Godsend in the absence of Bam Adebayo (neck/shoulder) and was active on offense during his extended run on the floor. Meyers Leonard was the starting center for the Heat tonight, but he played just nine minutes and finished with seven points, one 3-pointer and one steal. Olynyk will need to bring more games like this if the Heat want to steal Game 3 from the Lakers on Sunday.
