You know the game's getting ugly when you see tweets like these.
Steve Buckhantz just compared Kelly Olynyk to Larry Bird. That's what kind of game this is.— Bullets Forever (@BulletsForever) November 7, 2015
The Wizards are making Kelly Olynyk look like Larry Bird on steroids. #WizCeltics #nba— Joey Long (@JoeyLongIsland) November 7, 2015
To be fair, Kelly Olynyk is a good player. And he had a great performance scoring 19 points, grabbing seven rebounds, dishing four assists and stealing the ball four more times. But comparing a reserve frontcourt player to one of the Celtics' all-time greats was a bit of a stretch.
And despite the fact that the Wizards lost 118 to 98 to the Celtics, at least they'll get an opportunity to redeem themselves pretty early since they play the Hawks tomorrow night. In addition, every NBA team is going to have a night like this, though I will add that the Wizards' 3-2 record isn't necessarily as good as it seems on the surface.
Umair will have your recap in a few minutes. And L.W.'s on deck to preview the Hawks game.
It's gonna be a sleepless night here at Bullets Forever, and it ain't because we're happy. Now cry with me, friends.
