Jared Sullinger scored nine points (4-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt) to go along with 15 rebounds, three assists, and one block in 32 minutes during the Boston Celtics ' 84-80 win versus the 76ers on Wednesday.
Sullinger was inefficient from the field, but fought hard on the glass to help the Celtics avoid a loss to the 76ers. His 15 rebounds matches a season-high, and though Sullinger has failed to score 10 points in the past four games, he still seems to have a firm hold on the starting center spot in coach Brad Stevens' rotation. However, the Celtics have a lot of big men fighting for minutes, so on nights when Sullinger isn't producing, Stevens has other options he isn't afraid to employ.
Wednesday marked Sullinger's eighth start of the season. Sully appears to have locked down the starting power forward spot next to Amir Johnson. He's averaging 12.1 points, 10.4 rebounds, one block and one three-pointer as a starter. This is a major reversal from the preseason, when coach Brad Stevens buried Sullinger on the bench.
Jared Sullinger scored eight points (3-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT) with a game-high 15 rebounds, four steals, three assists and a block in 31 minutes during Sunday's win over the Thunder.
He couldn't get his shot to fall, but Sullinger still found plenty of other ways to contribute in the Boston Celtics ' road win. In six games since rejoining the starting lineup, he's averaging 11.7 points, 10.8 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 threes.
Jared Sullinger posted 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 33 minutes of action Wednesday against the Pacers.
Sullinger is averaging 12.4 points, 9.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.0 block over the last five games. After starting the season off the bench, Sullinger appears to have embraced his starting role, and looks to continue to contribute as a low-end fantasy option.
Jared Sullinger recorded 21 points (9-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt), eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, and two blocks in 22 minutes during the Boston Celtics ' 118-98 win versus the Wizards on Friday.
It was a spectacular night for Sullinger, who has made the most of his increased role for the Celtics since joining the starting lineup on Wednesday versus the Pacers. In two starts, Sullinger is averaging 15.0 points on 52 percent from the field, 57 percent from three, and 100 percent from the free throw line to go along with 9.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2.0 blocks in 25 minutes per game. He's highly unlikely to keep up this level of efficiency, but he seems to have responded well to Celtics' coach Brad Stevens' decision to bring him off the bench during the team's first three games.
