Sullinger to start vs Heat, Bass heading to the bench

From A. Sherrod Blakely, Jared Sullinger is jumping into the starting line-up today.

This moves Brandon Bass to the bench, just one day after Bass complained about his playing time and production. Message sent to Brandon Bass.

This is the right move in my opinion, as Sullinger has far outplayed Bass over the course of the season. A good stat from Celts play-by-play man Sean Grande on Sully's recent play:

While the move weakens the bench unit, desperate times call for desperate measures. Tip off at 1pm.
