Orlando Pro Summer League: Jared Sullinger Scores 16 As Celtics Defeat Pacers, 85-77

The Boston Celtics defeated the Indiana Pacers, 85-77, on Wednesday at Amway Arena in Summer League play.

Jared Sullinger led the Celtics with 16 points, eight rebounds, two blocks and an assist. Five other Boston players, including Kris Joseph (12 points), reached double figures in scoring. The Pacers were led by 19 points by Lance Stephenson and 18 points from Miles Plumlee.

The Celtics improved to 3-0 in Summer League play with the win over the Pacers and will play the Detroit Pistons (2-1) on July 12 at 11 a.m.
