Jared Sullinger stepped up in Xmas win over Nets
The last time Jared Sullinger was in Brooklyn, he played just eight minutes.
And the reason for his lack of playing time was clear.
In the eyes of head coach Doc Rivers, he wasn't playing well enough to help the team.
On Tuesday, Rivers couldn't keep him on the floor long enough as Sullinger played a critical role with Boston's second unit in helping the C's defeat the Brooklyn Nets, 93-76.
His 16 points scored tied his career high, although his first 16-point game came in a 20-point loss at Detroit on Nov. 18.
