The Boston Celtics will roll out their fourth starting lineup combination of the season on Wednesday night as Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk join the starting 5 in place of Brandon Bass and Vitor Faverani.

Coming off their worst loss of the season and riding a four-game losing streak, coach Brad Stevens is trying to figure out how to give his team a spark. The Celtics like the Sullinger-Olynyk combination and have worked to keep the young tandem paired together whenever possible since the preseason.

Sullinger and Olynyk join Jeff Green, Avery Bradley, and Jordan Crawford.

A look at Boston's other five-man combinations and their records this season:

0-4: Bradley, Gerald Wallace, Green, Bass, Faverani
2-2: Bradley, Crawford, Green, Bass, Faverani
2-2: Bradley, Crawford, Green, Bass, Olynyk
