The Boston Celtics fell to the Indiana Pacers 95-86 on Friday in the NBA Summer League third-place game in Orlando, Fla.
After having a routine day off Thursday, Kelly Olynk returned to the court and made his presence felt, scoring 19 points on 7-of-19 shooting. Rookie guard Marcus Smart had yet another strong showing, scoring a team-high 20 points on 6-of-18 shooting to go with three assists.
Phil Pressey chipped in 12 points and 13 assists coming off the bench, including a jumper with just under four minutes to play in the third quarter to put the Celtics ahead 64-62. The lead was short-lived, though, as Indiana went on an 11-0 run in the fourth quarter to seal the win.
Despite the loss, Mike Moser played his best game of the week, contributing 16 points and hauling in 10 rebounds, which was good enough to earn him a training camp invitation from the team after the game, CSNNE.com reported.
The Celtics finished the week 3-2, with both losses coming to the Pacers.
