Research Notes

  • Jared Sullinger tied his career high with 16 points off the bench Tuesday. The Celtics' offense was much more efficient with Sullinger on the floor, thanks in part to their ability to get easy baskets. Boston made 71 percent of its layups and dunks with Sullinger in the game, compared to just 38 percent with him on the bench.

  • Deron Williams attempted just 7 shots in the Nets loss to the Celtics Tuesday. It was the Nets 1st loss when Williams attempts 10 or fewer shots this season.
