Olynyk overcomes eye injury, leads Celts past Pacers 100-87

BOSTON (AP) Kelly Olynyk stood against a wall in the middle of the locker room, looking more like he just left a boxing ring than a basketball court.

With his left eye bruised and nearly shut with four stitches from an injury sustained hours before tip-off, Olynyk scored 19 points as the Boston Celtics beat the Indiana Pacers 100-87 Wednesday night in a matchup of Eastern Conference playoff hopefuls.

Before the game, Celtics coach Brad Stevens thought Olynyk would have to sit out after taking an elbow to the eye from teammate Shavlik Randolph while playing 1-on-1.
