Celts fall to Pacers in second Summer League game

If you missed Boston’s second Summer League game today at work like most of us, don’t worry-it wasn’t much of a contest.

Klynyk shines in Orlando-does he even lift?

Kelly Olynyk picked-up right where he left off last summer, dropping 20 points to go with 8 rebounds & 4 steals in Boston’s 85-77 win over the Heat on Saturday. One of the most common “gripes” from Celtics fans about Olynyk has been his lack of size. If Kelly is going to have anything beyond a perimeter game in the NBA, he’s simply going to have to bulk up a bit. During...
