Celtics first-round pick Kelly Olynyk scored 25 points in just 27 minutes of a 95-88 loss to the Magic during his NBA summer league debut in Orlando on Sunday.

Olynyk converted 9-of-12 attempts, including the first two of four 3-point shots, to go along with seven rebounds. Oh, and six fouls.

‘€œI really like his game,’€ new Celtics coach Brad Stevens told The Boston Globe from the sidelines. ‘€œHe’€™s really bright. You can tell he makes others around him better. I thought he did some good things defensively as well. He’€™s going to be a good player.’€

Fellow 7-footer Fab Melo added nine points and eight boards while summer league invitees Tony Mitchell (16 points) and Phil Pressey (11 points) each reached double figures. Celtics second-round pick Colton Iverson finished scoreless and grabbed four rebounds in his first game in green.
