Boston Celtics big man Kelly Olynyk said he never felt quite right after aggravating his shoulder injury in the playoffs. "I never really felt 100 percent the whole time," said Olynyk. "I never felt 80. It's tough to deal with and tough going down that stretch of games, you want to be at your best when your best was needed." Olynyk said he'll meet with team doctors to explore best way to get his shoulder healthy, but he has no current plans for surgery.

Jeff Teague on if the Hawks are a better defensive team this time around against Cavs than in East Finals last year: "We were slowing up when we came into the series last year. I think we reached our peak kind of early and right now, we are still growing defensively and getting a lot better. I think the offense will catch up with it."
