Magic-Celtics Preview

(AP) -- His overall numbers don't stand out but Kelly Olynyk has shown flashes of brilliance for the Boston Celtics, who are hoping to see more consistency out of the second-year center.

Coming off a career-best performance, Olynyk tries to lead the Celtics to a 12th win in 13 matchups against the visiting Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.

Olynyk is averaging 11.2 points to rank fourth on the Celtics (8-14), but he's scored at least 18 in eight games. The former Gonzaga star had averaged 7.5 points over a 10-game stretch before breaking out with 30 off the bench in Monday's 105-87 win at Philadelphia.
