Duke basketball czar Mike Krzyzewski registered his 1,000 career win in leading the Blue Devils 77-68 win over St. John's, making him the first Division I men's basketball coach to do so.
An MRI on Kelly Olynyk's right ankle injury suffered late last week was somewhat encouraging for the Boston Celtics and their 7-foot big man.
The Celtics (15-26) hit the midway point of the season riding the wave of a two-game winning streak.
But this isn't just any old back-to-back set of victories.
Without a clear go-to player, the Celtics don't have a choice but to lean heavily on one another to have any shot at success.
Kelly Olynyk's sprained ankle will keep him sidelined for about a month or longer according to Celtics head coach Brad Stevens.
