Olynyk also added four assists and four blocks in 25 minutes of action. Via the Canadian Press, Olynyk said afterwards:
I thought we played alright. We got off to a slow start but we closed the half strong and opened up the third quarter real strong. They are a great team and they have some players that can really go so it was a great win for us.
Great team win to end the first stage. On to the next. #TeamCanada #FIBA #Mexico2015 #RoadToRio https://t.co/m6oMiBWNqK— Kelly Olynyk (@KellyOlynyk) September 5, 2015
