Impressive stats, against the Knicks at home that is.

But good to see him flourishing well in another team, regardless.

Previous game against Denver was even better, 30 pts., 8 reb., 6 ass., 4 blocks, 1 steal and was +18 in that double O.T. thriller on Monday.  Spoelstra has figured out how to use K.O. in a matter of months, Stevens had 4 years and spent them all with K.O. under his thumb.  Miami's offense has looked virtually unguardable with K.O. on the floor since the All Star break with a 123.4 offensive rating and a +19.1 net rating in 302 minutes.

Now that's a proper hot take.

KO's season stat line is almost identical to last season.

If you want to cherry pick ...sure .... I guess we can make Rozier look better than Chris Paul

Yeah, KO is putting up numbers very similar to what he did here. The only area of significant improvement is his assists.

Coincides with an almost identical bump in turnovers, but his usage isn't anything amazing.

Don't think there's anything to see here with this game though. Would be like if people went about wanting to trade for Dwight after his 30/30 game

Olynyk was never really trusted by Stevens. And he was mostly out of rhythm due to injuries. Now he has the opportunity to shine in a system that is more team orientated than the Celtics were last year. He always had it in him, but now he has confidence and more experience and that translates to more consistent performances. He truly is one of the best players on a playoff team.

I'm happy for him. It's a shame we couldn't find a way to keep him. He is such a likeable guy and his game is a joy to watch. But I'd rather not face him and the Heat in the first round. They are playing really well. They could overtake the Pacers in the standings though and I prefer that match up right now.


Arrogant Dutchman with an absurd sarcastic sense of humor and an extreme world view. Mildly dangerous.

Could and should have been Giannis.  Enough said about Olynyk.

i don't see anything consistent here

I like the guy too  but discovering the great star we missed just because he scored 30p once (while he averages 11) and blaming everyone for letting him go is beyong funny

and he is getting 12m per year  !!!!!!!!!!!!

So is that why he is 9th in minutes per game and rarely starts?

But Ainge had full confidence in Jeff Green at the time...

I always liked him and had high hopes - but when he left and signed for more than I thought the C's should pay - I have no non-buyers remorse.  More power to him.  All in all - I was disappointed with him as a C.  He had his chance here and failed, in my eyes.

Players are supposed to improve, especially when they get paid.   So saying Brad didn’t know how to use him is laughable.    We supposed to give him all Al touches.  The guys stats are similar to what they were last year.   Come on people.   KO is skilled, but was to rich for us.  End of story.  Wish the guys does well and can’t wait to beat hem in the first round.

KO always seemed like a tease. It's almost like he needs to be told precisely when to be aggressive, like, it isn't in his nature to dominate a game, even if he has the skills and opportunities.
