Olynyk Finishes Rookie Summer League With Solid Play
SPOKANE, Wash. – Former Gonzaga University standout Kelly Olynyk completed play in the 2013 Orlando NBA Summer League Friday with 12 points and 7 rebounds in a 102-83 win over the Orlando Magic to give the Celtics seventh place in the 10-team league.
Former Zag Micah Downs averaged 6.5 ppg for the Indiana Pacers over four games. He scored a high of 14 points against the Philadelphia 76ers. He also averaged 2.3 rpg.
Olynyk, named to the All-League team and considered the top rookie, finished Summer League play averaging 18.0 ppg for second overall – Reggie Jackson of Oklahoma City averaged 19.5 ppg but played just two games – and 7.8 rpg. He had two 20-point games, including a high of 25 against Orlando in the Summer League opener.
Meanwhile, the 22-team Las Vegas Summer League began its 10-day run Friday with four Bulldogs dotting rosters. Robert Sacre and Elias Harris are with the Los Angeles Lakers, Downs is with the Toronto Raptors and Josh Heytvelt was signed by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Sacre, who signed another contract with the Lakers earlier this week, and Harris were both in the line-up for the Lakers in their game with the Cavaliers. Harris played 28 minutes with 9 points and 8 rebounds while Sacre played 17 minutes and scored 5 points and hauled in 4 rebounds in a 70-62 loss to the Cavaliers.
Heytvelt came off the bench for Cleveland and had three rebounds and an assist in 14 minutes.
Downs was idle Friday as Toronto doesn’t play until Saturday against Miami.
In a new format all 22 teams will play three games and then be seeded into a 22-team, double-elimination tournament to crown a champion.
