Kelly Olynyk shot 10-for-14 from the field and 4-for-5 from the line for 26 points with five rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes in Wednesday’s 115-105 win over the Wizards in Game 7.
The Celtics outscored the Wizards 48-5 off the bench, thanks to Olynyk. He was the perfect boost off the bench that a Game 7 atmosphere needed, hitting big shots in the fourth quarter (14 points) to put the Wizards away for good. We have seen these outbursts from Olynyk before, but he is not consistent enough to warrant a draft pick in redraft leagues next season. The Celtics move on to play the Cavs in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday.
