Gary Washburn

The player whose playing suffered the most with Stevens' lineup changes is Kelly Olynyk. Played just 2:41. #celtics

Adam Himmelsbach

Surprised to see Kelly Olynyk play just 3 minutes in that first half.

Rich Levine

This game changed the second LeBron looked into Olynyk's eyes and saw the fear of God.

Jared Weiss

KElly Olynyk: LeBron Stopper Again

Rich Levine

Can't blame LeBron there. You see Olynyk in the paint and your plans change.

Mike Prada

LeBron was terrified of the intimidating Kelly Olynyk waiting for him

Adam Himmelsbach

Olynyk passed up the poster there but it actually worked for him.

Jay King

Weird, but I think James just feared Olynyk, Rim Protector.

Jared Weiss

Kelly Olynyk: LeBron Stopper. #Celtics

Mark Murphy

Smith picks off inbounds pass for Olynyk at the rim.

Gary Washburn

Tristan Thompson and Kelly Olynyk defending each other. Canada Basketball is in good hands. #celtics #cavaliers

Scott Souza

Kelly Olynyk in for #Celtics. That means Brad Stevens will go 11 players deep in first quarter. So much for conventional NBA playoff wisdom.

Scott Souza

Interesting, at least for now, Jared Sullinger, Jonas Jerebko and Gigi Datome have all played for #Celtics ahead of Kelly Olynyk in Game 3.

Mike Prada

Wonder if Stevens will come back with Olynyk and/or Jerebko when LeBron returns with Cleveland’s bench.

Jimmy Spencer

Snubbed again. RT @GlobeCarraggi: @Jimmy Spencer Haven’t seen the results; where did Olynyk finish?

Tom Halzack

Somewhat curious plus/minus for stat wonks to illuminate: E. Turner +8 in 33min. K. Olynyk + 13 in 21 min. rest = minus for game.

Adam Himmelsbach

Avery Bradley and Kelly Olynyk are a combined 3-for-3 on three-pointers in this quarter. Good sign for the Celtics.

Chris Fedor

#Cavs should think about putting Tristan back in. Can get out to perimeter on Olynyk better. And Celts don't have Isaiah attacking the paint

Steve Bulpett

Olynyk 3 puts Celts up 41-34 and Cavs fans make noise that translates to WTH?

Rich Levine

If nothing else comes of this series, Kelly Olynyk has finally found himself.

Adam Himmelsbach

Kelly Olynyk cans a 3 to give the Celtics a 41-34 lead, and the home crowd is getting a little restless.

A. Sherrod Blakely

#Celtics go with Thomas, Bradley, Crowder, Olynyk and Sullinger to start 2Q. #Celticstalk

Ethan J. Skolnick

Early entry for Kendrick Perkins, which is odd because the Celtics have Olynyk & Sullinger up front.

Fabian Garcia

Olynyk y Thompson también se anotan para Canadá; basquetplus.com/articulo/olyny… #Monterrey2015 http://t.co/Qg0B9HsMG5

Rick Noland

Tyler Zeller had 6 pts in first 3:34. ended up playing just 15 min and was benched to start second half in favor of Olynyk

Adam Himmelsbach

Kelly Olynyk: "They made plays at the end of quarters, which kind of stabbed us each time."

Gary Washburn

#cavaliers beat #celtics 113-100 in Game 1 of EC First Round. Irving 30, James 20, Love 19; Thomas 22, Turner 12, Olynyk 12. CLE: 13 3pt.

Ben Rohrbach

Good job by Olynyk there ducking out of the way of a rebound. I take back my Finals MVP pick.

Jared Weiss

Kelly Olynyk ducks out of the way of the last rebound that matters in the game.

Gary Washburn

Meanwhile, Olynyk avoids a rebound coming off the rim headed for his head #celtics

Jason Lloyd

End 3Q: #Cavs 91, BOS 76. Irving 25p; Love 14p,12r; James 15p,6a; Thompson 11p,5r. BOS Thomas 17p,7a; Olynyk 12p. CLE 46%,10TO; BOS 48%,12TO

Gary Washburn

After a 14-0 #celtics run, #cavs score 9 in the final 1:18 and lead 91-76 after 3Q. Irving 25, James 15; Thomas 17, Olynyk 12, Bradley 2

Jared Weiss

Kelly Olynyk’s eye is still swollen shut on the bench.

Tas Melas

Is Kelly Olynyk gonna bring the Larry O’Brien trophy through Canada so we can all touch it? #NBAPlayoffs

Chuck Swirsky

Two young Canadians going at it @Tristan Thompson and @Kelly Olynyk love it

Jared Weiss

Kelly Olynyk is the new Roy Hibbert. #FakeTommyQuotes

Jared Weiss

Foul trouble Update: #Celtics: Olynyk 3, Zeller 2, Crowder 2 #Cavs: Smith 4, Love 3, LeBron 2, Mozgov 2, Irving 2.

Mark Murphy

Olynyk draws Smith's fourth foul.

Mike Prada

I’m guessing Stevens prefers Olynyk in for spacing and likes the Bass/Love matchup more than Bass/Zeller or Olynyk/Zeller

Adam Himmelsbach

Marcus Smart and Kelly Olynyk are a combined 8-for-8 from the field. Not bad for playoff debuts.

Jared Weiss

Olynyk just boxed out LeBron with ease. This is going to be a fun story.

Mark Murphy

Olynyk starts in place of Zeller in third quarter.

Bob Finnan

Kelly Olynyk starts at center for the Celtics in the second half instead of Tyler Zeller

Rick Noland

Olynyk starts for Zeller

Jay King

Olynyk will start the second half. If you can't rebound anyway, might as well go with your most skilled lineup. But gotta rebound better.

Gary Washburn

Smart, Bass, Olynyk, Bradley and Turner start 2nd half for #celtics

Marcelo Godoy

Por Cleveland K. Irving 20 pts, Lebron 13 pts Por Boston I. Thomas 12 pts, Olynyk 10 pts

Jason Lloyd

Half: #Cavs 62, BOS 54. Irving 20p,2a; James 13p,5a; Love 6p,6r (2/11 FG); TT 9p,5r. BOS Thomas 12p; Olynyk 10p. CLE 45%,5TO; BOS 53%,7TO

Brian Robb

Awful charge call there against Olynyk. Gives him 3 fouls too.

Rick Noland

Love takes charge from Olynyk. hey, looking for positives from him, giving 1-7 shooting
