Thomas, Olynyk Lead Celtics Past Magic [VIDEO]
Isaiah Thomas scored 28 points and Kelly Olynyk added 22 points off the bench as the Boston Celtics beat the Orlando Magic 107-96 Monday Night at TD Garden.
It was Olynyk's best performance since returning from a shoulder injury that kept him off the court for a month. In his first three games since returning from the injury, Olynyk averaged just 5.6 points per game. On Monday, the Celtics big man was 7 of 12 from the field and 4 of 6 from 3-point range.
The Celtics have won two in a row and are tied with the Atlanta Hawks for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.
Victor Oladipo scored a team-high 25 points and Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon and Andrew Nicholson each scored 13 points for the Magic, who are last in the Southeast Division at 29-41.
The Celtics' next game is Wednesday night against the Toronto Raptors, a team that beat the Celtics 105-91 Friday night at the Air Canada Centre.
The Celtics will kick off a five-game West Coast road trip Saturday in Phoenix.
Prior to Monday's game against the Magic, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Jae Crowder, who's been out with a high ankle sprain since March 11, will travel with the team during the road trip, in hopes that Crowder will return from his injury during that stretch of games.
