Jared Sullinger played his ass off tonight. Just played his ass off. Give the kid a gold star, a cookie, a trophy, and the starting PF job at this point. Just do it. Courtney Lee also stepped up in Rondo’s absence with 17 points on 6-13 shooting. Before the game he said he changed his mentality with Rondo out. I don’t want him to change it back.

Sullinger had 12 points on 6-8 shooting and 8 rebo
