Limited to just four minutes in Game 2, C's swing-man Jonas Jerebko's spot in the rotation was leapfrogged by Jared Sullinger who logged 22-minutes of playing time.
But don't expect that to be the case for Game 3 in Boston:

The Celts desperately need the outside shooting of Jerebko to have a chance in the critical Game 3. As a team, the C's have made just 14 of their 44 attempts (31.8%) from long distance in the series.
Although Sullinger knocked down two of his four shots from beyond the arc in Game 2, the preferable three-ball should come out off the finger tips of Jerebko rather than Sullinger.
In his 27 games in a Celtics uniform, the 28-year old Jerebko is shooting 40% from deep. Sullinger, for the season, has only made 27% of his field goals from three.
