Kelly Olynyk shines as Celtics down Wizards to set up Cavaliers showdown

20 Mai, 2017, 05:49 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

"PESPTF00231-topic.html" class="local_link" Kelly Oubre Jr. for Game 4 of the playoff series against Boston on Sunday after he charged and knocked down Celtics center Kelly Olynyk during Game 3.

The Kentucky product may not be satisfied with the season because his team failed to make the Eastern Conference Finals, but he reached his fourth straight All-Star Game and posted career-best marks of 23.1 points and 10.7 assists per game.

Kelly Olynyk walked off the parquet floor with 97 ticks left on the clock Monday night to a resounding ovation after he had poured in a playoff career-high 26 points during Game 7, which included 14 during the fourth quarter.

Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas knows his top-seeded team will be considered the underdog against the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals, but he believes Boston will continue to use that as motivation.

"But what a special opportunity to get a chance to compete against them". "It was a team effort, hard work".

And while the seven-game series with Washington certainly was a grueling marathon mentally, Thomas acknowledged it took quite a toll on his body as well.

Washington's Ian Mahinmi, who was part of the 2014 Indiana Pacers' team that eliminated Washington in the East semifinals, said both Wall and Bradley Beal have matured a lot since then. Throughout the playoffs, their ability to convert those perimeter jumpers has defined their success, and they were over 40 percent in their series against the Wizards.

Jaylen Brown only played 19 minutes in Game 7 against the Wizards, but they were certainly impactful minutes.

Yeah, Otto Porter probably had about a foot on Thomas in this matchup, but still, that's some great footwork.

Tottenham ready to give up on EPL title
Dier added: "We brought it [the deficit to Chelsea] back to four points but after today it's almost impossible now". Tottenham spent most of last season in second place, but faltered in mid to late May, and finished third.


John Wall added 18 points and 11 assists for the Wizards, but missed his final 10 shots.

Boston trailed 76-72 late in the third quarter before a 13-3 spurt.

Just a few minutes later, Smart took the same walk and smiled at Olynyk - already sitting in his vehicle and waiting to go home. I think they're better than any of the four times we played them, including the last one when they smashed us. It's kind of a privilege to get to that point where one game is going to decide your whole season basically. The Celtics picked up some momentum when Kelly Olynyk drove to the basket for a layup and was fouled with 5.7 seconds left.

On Monday night, the Celtics stood tall on the dramatic, nerve-infested stage that is an Eastern Conference semifinal Game 7.

Thomas, as he has done all season, played his best when the Celtics needed it most. The Wizards are 6-4 in Game 7s, 2-4 on the road.

Thomas had 9 points in that stretch for Boston. That was quickly neutralized by the Wizards, however, and for the rest of the half, the game was back and forth, with Washington holding a two-point advantage at the break. Maligned for their play throughout the month of March and beginning of April, the Cavaliers converted 43 of their 92 attempts, including 11 three-point attempts and 17 of their 18 free throws in the lopsided win. For just the Wizards, this marked the closest they had come to a conference finals berth since 1979, but their 38-year drought remains.

Only Eddie Johnson (34 points for the Seattle SuperSonics against the Suns in 1993) and Sedale Threatt (28 points for the 76ers against the Bucks in 1986) scored more off the bench in a Game 7 in this era.

"Our focus is on staying at home and trying to play good basketball and recognizing that you're not going to play flawless".
