Tyler outduels little brother Cody in highly anticipated Zeller vs. Zeller showdown

Zeller vs. Zeller. There's nothing like it.
The Celtics fell 96-87 in Charlotte last night, but the real story is what happened in the illustrious Zeller-Zeller matchup.

With their parents on hand to watch (although not wearing these spectacular t-shirts), 24-year-old Tyler (out of North Carolina) started at center for the Celtics opposite 22-year-old Cody (from Indiana) for the Hornets.

After the final buzzer sounded, the stat lines were as follows:

Tyler Zeller:
27 MIN, 6-9 FG, 13 PTS, 8 REB, 1 AST

Cody Zeller:
24 MIN, 3-6 FG, 9 PTS, 2 REB, 2 AST

A clear and decisive victory for big brother Tyler.  This was the fifth time the two Zellers have gone head-to-head in the NBA.  Unfortunately for Tyler, Cody's team has won on all five occasions.
