Stevens said Marcus Smart mostly started second half to get Jeff Green at the 4. But also because Olynyk had a slow start.
Smart starts the second half instead of Olynyk. Green at the 4 in a really small lineup.
Stevens said he has a pretty good idea of who would start if everyone's healthy. My guess: Rondo, Bradley, Green, Sullinger, Olynyk.
One of these is the 3-point shot chart of the Lakers. The other is the 3-point shot chart of Kelly Olynyk. http://t.co/kvgIkkBHxl
The Celtics are blowing the Sixers out in Philly, leading 65-44 at the break. Bradley has 20 pts (6/8 3s). Olynyk: 8 pts, 7 rebs, 4 asts.
Opponents are going to have to be prepared for the top-of-the-key 3 from Kelly Olynyk and Jared Sullinger.
Weird stats, despite not scoring, Bruno led Raptors at +9. Kelly Olynyk went 2-for-7, but was game-best +17 (not a big +/- fan, but strange)
Olynyk: +17 (33 min); Bass: -19 (16 min) Guessing C's are shopping Bass hard now, b/c he's looking at seriously limited minutes.
That was such good passing there. Smart (I think?) to Turner, to Olynyk, to Green for a 3-pointer in the corner.
Will a 44-minute game change anything? Kelly Olynyk's bold prediction: "It will be shorter with less timeouts, I guess."
Turner, Bradley, Green, Sullinger, Olynyk tonight's starters for C's; Stevens admits it'll be tough to unseat Olynyk as starting center.
Brad Stevens says "it would be tough to unseat" Kelly Olynyk as the Celtics' starting center before Opening Night.
According to Stevens, as of now, Kelly Olynyk is your starting center to open the Celtics' season.
Stevens basically declares Olynyk a starter: "I think it would be tough to unseat him right now."
Evan Turner, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green, Sullinger and Olynyk are your starters. Stevens again said Green will play more PF this year.
Dwane Casey believes Celtics have a lot of talent and should not be taken lightly. Says Kelly Olynyk has improved a lot.
Stevens said all the young guys, Rondo and Olynyk went through a minor practice for offensive work earlier today.
Olynyk could play off bench; Gerald Wallace only player that dressed last night that won't dress tonight.
Joel Anthony will start in place of Olynyk. Stevens wants to see more from his bigs.
Kelly Olynyk not in the starting lineup tonight. Gerald Wallace out. Joel Anthony starting. Preseason!
Brad Stevens: "Everybody that was dressed last night is going to dress w/ the exception of Gerald (Wallace)." Kelly Olynyk also won't start.
Also continue to enjoy the Sullinger-Olynyk duo.
Stevens also said Kelly Olynyk is a big part of Boston’s future. Olynyk said there’s always a little extra playing in hometown.
Stevens on Olynyk: "He's a big part of what we're doing". Also very complimentary of their other 2 Canadians - Joel Anthony, Dwight Powell
