Despite a nice 25 points from Kelly Olynyk, the Celtics lost their Summer League opener to the Magic today, 95-88. In the standings, the Magic now have 5 points while the Celtics have just 2, as they led two quarters. But this one was still fun to watch. They don't need to win every exhibition game. And they have another one tomorrow. Today's USOTN goes to the performance of Phil Pressey. In his NBA debut, this point guard out of Missouri scored 11 points on 4/5 shooting. I did not expect a good performance like this from him. When he was in college, I saw a lot of big games from him. And this kinda game proves to me that he's capable of starting the season on the NBA team and not in the D-League. The Celtics will return to the Amway Center practice court tomorrow at 3:00 pm ET when they take on the Pistons. The Pistons will be considered the home team in this one while the C's will again be the visitors. The game can be seen on NBA TV. Enjoy it.

It may just be Summer League, but Oladipo seemed fine with that moment for the time being. ...
