A Celtic hero from a year ago, Kelly Olynyk came back to bite the Celtics on Wednesday night, scoring a career-high 32 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, four turnovers and six 3-pointers in the Heat’s 90-89 win.
In Game 7 of last year’s Eastern Conference Semi-Finals when the Celtics beat the Wizards, “Kelly! Kelly! Kelly!” echoed throughout the arena. Tonight, Celtics fans will likely hear that in their nightmares. Olynyk apparently saves his best performances for Boston. Don’t expect another one of these performances from Olynyk this season. But look out if the Heat and Celtics end up matched up in round one of the playoffs.
