Celtics Olynyk seizes opportunity

PHILADELPHIA — For one brief, sport-bending moment Avery Bradley was a left fielder in Fenway Park.Kelly Olynyk’s attempt at a cross-court pass had sailed 10 feet over the Celtics guard’s head and out of bounds.

Avery Bradley showing reasons why Boston should bring him back, despite injury history

Avery Bradley and Rondo played well together Wednesday night, and it left a great feeling for me. Avery Bradley has scored over 20 points in three of his last seven games. With one of those games being a game where he played just 14 minutes after injuring his Achilles.Bradley was on point finishing 4-of-4...

Speaking of him, he recently got some nasty stitches right between his forehead and nose. But that’s not the worst injury I’ve ever witnessed, the worst also involved Rondo. When he dislocated his elbow,...
