Quantcast

Olynyk's patented "I'm 7 feet tall but I shoot the ball from 3 feet below the basket" finger roll.

Last night in the Celtics' 105-87 win over the Sixers in Philly, Kelly Olynyk shot 12-for-17 from the field, 3-for-5 from three-point land and 3-for-3 at the free-throw line.  The grand total was a new career-high, 30 points (oddly enough Olynyk's previous career-best was also recorded in Philadelphia, when he poured in 28 points against the Sixers April 14 of last season).

As ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg noted, it was the largest single-game scoring output by a player off the Celtics bench since the immortal Ricky Davis logged 36 points on April 1, 2005.

If Olynyk has another outing like this in the near future, we can probably expect Tommy Heinsohn to start campaigning for Kelly's Hall-of-Fame candidacy:


"Perennial All-Star player," huh?  Classic Tommy being Tommy.
