    Celtics forward Tyler Zeller scores career-high 26 points in win

    Celtics forward Tyler Zeller scored a career-high 26 points on 11 of 15 shooting from the field in Boston's 108-89 win over the 76ers Monday. Zeller also grabbed five rebounds and dished out two assists in the contest. Zeller has shot lights out over the last two games, going a combined 19 of 25 from the field and scoring 44 points. "I think it's just opportunity," Zeller said to MASSLive.com. "Especially against people like Hibbert, who want to play at the basket, you can stretch the floor. I used it some my first two years in Cleveland, and now, if the opportunity's there, being able to pick-and-pop in the middle, my teammates are realizing, and I'm showing them that I can shoot that. So they're getting the ball to me. And then when I don't have it, we're making great plays off that."

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller sinks game-winner Wednesday vs. Jazz

    Celtics center Tyler Zeller made a reverse layup as time expired Wednesday to give his team an 85-84 win over the Jazz in Boston. The Jazz put the towering Rudy Gobert on inbounder Marcus Smart with 1.7 seconds left on the clock, but the rookie guard was able to find his center for the winning basket. "I saw Gordon (Hayward) flying in so I shot-faked and just got the ball up," Zeller said after the game, per the Associated Press. "Thankfully, I was able to get it up to the rim and was able to make it." "With 1.7 seconds left, you're really lucky to get a shot up, let alone a basket," coach Brad Stevens said after the game. Zeller finished with eight points on 4 of 8 shooting as well as 11 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes. The Celtics will square off with the Pelicans Friday.

Our precedent is set." Stevens said that he'll leave up to Danny Ainge on whether to fine Sullinger for being late again.

He scored 22 points, grabbed nine boards and handed out six assists in 36 minutes against the Knicks.
