So, yeah. That happened. Sully averaged a pretty impressive double-double in three games last week at nearly 20 points and 13 rebounds.  He put up 31 and 16 when he went toe-to-toe with one of the league's young premiere big men in DeMarcus Cousins and has been an absolute beast on the boards since coming back from back surgery and finally looking healthy after a couple of nagging injuries hampered him this year.
