Check out the Boston Celtics' Kelly Olynyk launching this crazy point-blank floater up and over the backboard.


That wasn’t nearly enough, however. The man with the flowing locks launched again, from long distance.


Facing the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center, Olynyk had just five points in nearly 14 minutes in the first half. But he’ll always have the back-to-back misses.
