Kelly Olynyk started in place of the injured Jimmy Butler Tuesday and scored 15 points (4-11 FG, 5-6 FT, 2-7 3PT) with six rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block, and one turnover in 32 minutes in 112-106 win over the Celtics.
Olynyk stuffed the stat sheet Tuesday night against the Celtics in a spot start for Butler. His eight assists were double what any other Heat player had tonight as he was basically operating as a point-forward. Olynyk has played well in the re-start thus far, and even in a reserve role he has seen an average of 27 minutes per game. Through three games, he's averaging 17.3 points per game and should continue to get his opportunities on a nightly basis.
