Jared Sullinger Scores on "Tip-In of the Century" Against Pistons

By Jason Priestas on December 19, 2013 at 7:23a

With the Celtics leading the Pistons 40-23 and :02 to play in the first quarter, Gerald Wallace had the ball at half court for an inbound play to end the half.

It would take the "the best tip-in play of the century" for the Cs to convert and that's exactly what big Jared Sullinger delivered, finishing for an improbable two to hand Boston a 42-23 lead.

Despite the huge first quarter lead, the Celtics would go on to lose to the Pistons, 107-106. Sullinger finished 19 points and 8 rebounds.

Looks like it was 0.2 seconds remaining in the first quarter.  So unless nobody scored during the second quarter, the halftime score probably wasn't 42-23...  :)
Seriously though, that was amazing.  Almost as good as any of 3 Sam Thompson alley-oops in a given OSU game!

Looks like they are in a college basketball frame of mind....

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

That's exactly what happened. Craziest thing ever.

The staff is confusing quarters and half.  Halftime score was 63-52 C's.

Pretty funny commentary on this one.

That's pretty damn good. Especially for regular season NBA action.

That was over top of Josh Harrellson, too. Remember when Harrellson rocketed the ball into Sullinger's chest during the Sweet Sixteen game a few years ago? That was a moment that my inbred UK friends seem to think shows that UK is better than OSU. I can't wait to send this around.

Ahhh, Harrellson..... the guy that not only had the game of his life that day, but he also assaulted Sully the entire game, and somehow Sully lived to tell about it.

I don't think you understood my comment. I was taking a shot at Harrellson b/c he got away with mugging Sully that entire game. A big reason why we lost.

Sully also missed some clutch free throws last night too, he was beating himself up about them on Twitter.

When I click to play, it says video is private???
Is this a Private Lounge thing for exclusive premium 11W content members?
Seriously, I wanna see this play!

I'm not sure why it was private; there's a new video showing the same tip-in now.

Ceci n'est pas une signature.

Thank you, but still says private :/
Could be a work computer thing perhaps?

I'm getting the same message.

I like to believe that my best hits border on felonious assault.

Nope, the uploader simply changed it to be a private video.  :\  (or the YouTube/NBA police at work)

I don't know what's better. The tip or his ho-hum reaction, like its 'just 2 points'.

That pass was amazing. 

I wasn't born a Buckeye but I became one as fast as I could.

Why the HELL was this not in ESPNs top 3 NBA plays? Some bullshit Rubio pass, a easy buzzer beater, and an overrated LeBron dunk (of course) beats Sullys play
