• Sullinger's 16 boards power Celtics past Suns

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Jan 10, 2013
    Jeff Green, Jason Terry and rookie Jared Sullinger carried the Celtics through a game of streaks, each outscoring their starting teammates as Boston recovered from a dreadful third quarter and held off the slumping Phoenix Suns 87-79 on Wednesday night. Green had 14 points, Terry scored 13 and Sullinger finished with 12 and pulled down a career-best 16 rebounds as Boston's reserves outscored their Phoenix counterparts 47-16. As has been the case in nearly every game this season, the Suns played some quality stretches of basketball but enough inconsistency persisted for the Celtics to win rather easily. People are already beginning to count the Los Angeles Lakers out of the playoff equation they’ll certainly have to make a stellar run at some point to change that so the much worse-off Suns could very well be resigned to looking forward to the NBA Draft. Boston will have a fresh Rajon Rondo in tow after the dynamic point guard served a one-game suspension on Monday against the New York Knicks for bumping into official Rodney Mott during Saturday’s game against Atlanta.
