Olynyk’s 26 Points Helps Celtics to 115-105 Game 7 Win Over Washington

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

 

Kelly Olynyk scores 26 points to help the Celtics to a game 7 win over Washington

Kelly Olynyk scored 26 points off the bench, Isaiah Thomas added 29 and the Boston Celtics beat the Washington Wizards 115-105 in game 7 at TD Garden in Boston to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. 

The Celtics will be in the conference finals for the first time since 2012, when they lost to Miami. 

Boston will face the defending NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers in the conference finals. 

They are set to begin on Wednesday, May 17 at TD Garden. Tip-off is set for 8:30 p.m.

Celtics Take Control 

In a game that was close throughout until the Boston Celtics took control starting late in the third quarter. 

Trailing 79-76 with two minutes to play in the third, a game-tying three by Isaiah Thomas sparked the Celtics to an 18-2 run, capped off by another Thomas three with 10 minutes to play in the game to give Boston a 94-81 lead. 

Thomas had 9 points in that stretch for Boston. 

The Wizards would rally to within four, 101-97, on the heels of back-to-back three-pointers by Bradley Beal, including a four-point play. 

However, Olynyk would score 7 of the Celtics next 9 points as they would cruise to the win in the final minute. 

NBA Draft Lottery 

The NBA Draft Lottery is set for Tuesday, May 16 at 8:30 p.m. The Celtics have the best chance of getting the number one overall pick in the draft courtesy of the trade with the Brooklyn Nets that sent Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to Brooklyn.
