07:29 AM ET 11.28 | Jared Sullinger may not cut the figure of a typical long-distance shooter, but he's been good from behind the arc. The 6-foot-9 widebody did his part and then some down the stretch [on Wednesday], coming in with 10:31 left and bulling his way inside for three hoops and a free throw (as part of a 3-point play). Sullinger then stepped out to the arc to hit a pair of treys on consecutive possessions as the C's began to make it interesting with a little more than a minute left. ... Sullinger finished the night 2-for-3 on 3-pointers, and coach Brad Stevens later said he'd like perhaps his best low-post scorer to take even more long range attempts if they are available. "He constantly tells me to take the open shot," Sullinger said of Stevens. "He's always in my ear about shooting the ball."

If they land a solid shooting guard and a center this team can be dangerous down the road.

Sullinger maybe be undersize but he gets the job done down low. He has incredible amounts of post moves and has a huge frame which makes up for his lack of height. Kind of like Carlos Boozer

Are you talking about Cleveland? Actually your comment would apply to 80% of the teams in the NBA.

Sully can be a great bench player for 12-8 type stats. Hard working hustle player. Expecting him to be a 82-game starter with consistent production is over the top. He just needs to be used properly.
