Jared Sullinger and DeMarcus Cousins found themselves matched up on the battlefield, and fought to an even draw: 31 points and 16 rebounds for each. I don’t even know how to search basketball-reference for other times that has happened. Maybe if I had direct SQL query access.
Anyway, yeah, Jared is looking like a legit player. Like Charles Barkley with an outside shot (I mean, an outside shot that has more than an outside shot of going in). And worse in all other aspects of the game. But you get the idea. I don’t know if the Celtics are tanking or not, but either way they are developing some promising young talent this year. Phil Pressey is the next Rajon Rondo, and they still have the current Rajon Rondo on the roster! Some teams have all the luck.
