Sully is drawing the double team and the Celtics' three point shooters are making opponents pay. The Garden Report looks at Sully's progress and the Celtics' overall development in it's first 20 games without Rondo.

BOSTON – Jared Sullinger is commanding the double team. in only his second season, Sullinger has showed continued improvement in his post game and perimeter shooting to the point that the Milwaukee Bucks frequently doubled Sullinger on his post touches throughout their home-and-home series.
