NBA’s Jared Sullinger Has 41 Pts, 25 Bds In China

Former Ohio State star and Boston Celtic Jared Sullinger had a monster 41-point, 25-rebound double double to lead the Shenzhen Leopards past the Sichuan Blue Whales 117-105 in the Chinese Basketball Association.

 

The 6-8, 262-pound forward also had 7 assists, 3 blocks, and 2 steals in the game.

 

QuAn Gu added 21 points for the Leopards in the win.

 

For the Blue Whales, Jamaal Franklin (San Diego State) had 35 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists in the loss.

 

But the star of the game was Sullinger, who is second in the Chinese CBA in scoring and rebounding this season, averaging a whopping 43.5 points and 17.5 boards for Shenzhen.

 

He comes from the NBA’s Toronto Raptors, where he averaged 3.4 points and 2.5 rebounds in 11 games last season.

 

Sullinger also played part of the year in the G League, averaging 17 points and 12.5 rebounds for the Raptors 905.

 

However he is best known for his time with the Boston Celtics from 2012-13 to 2015-16.

 

A college star at Ohio State, Sullinger led the team in scoring, rebounding and blocks as a sophomore in 2011-12, averaging 17.5 points, 9.2 boards and 1.1 rejections.

 

He guided the Buckeyes to a 31-8 record that year and the NCAA Tournament’s Final 4.

 

Sullinger graduated as the school’s eighth all-time leading rebounder, despite playing only two seasons at OSU.

 

The 21st overall pick in the 2012 Draft by Boston, Sullinger averaged 10.8 points and 7.5 rebounds in five NBA seasons with the Celtics and Raptors.

 

ESPN’s No 2 ranked player in the 2010 high school class, he averaged 24.5 points and 11.7 rebounds on 78 percent field goal shooting as a senior at Northland HS (Columbus, OH).
