Celtics Tweets of Interest: Jared Sullinger Playing Video Games, Fab Melo Supports Syracuse, and Paul Pierce Raves About ChiTown
The Boston Celtics have won three straight games. This is their longest streak of the season. They had two victories over the Milwaukee Bucks and the Chicago Bulls on the road and they survived the Utah Jazz at home on Wednesday. These are encouraging signs that the Celtics might be shaking their early season doldrums.
Jeff Green and the bench performed well in all three games. Green looked to be more aggressive and he was attacking the basket. He had 12 points in the 96-92 come-from-behind win in Milwaukee. The bench was 11-0f-22 from the field in the 101-95 victory over the Bulls. The bench scored 47 points against the Jazz, including 16 apiece from Green and Leandro Barbosa.
Overall the Celtics are 5-3 and they are in third place in the Atlantic Division .
Off the court, players are interested in the release of video games such as “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.” and college basketball.
Here are some tweets from the Celtics:
Y’all need to check y’all’s connection on call of duty…. It wasn’t like this a week ago. Smh

Sullinger is upset about his fellow players’ connection while playing “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.” Perhaps, Sullinger is more upset about his lack of production so far, but he did hit a critical 3-pointer to end the third quarter that gave the Celtics a 12-point advantage in their victory over the Bulls. The Celtics will need Sullinger to be a force inside this year.
Lets go cuse!!!

Fellow Celtics rookie Fab Melo expresses his support for the Syracuse Orange as they kicked off their basketball season this past weekend. Despite losing several players from last year’s Elite Eight squad, Syracuse is poised to have another strong season. Meanwhile Melo hopes to improve his game in the D-League for the Maine Red Claws.

Everyone find out the next time the Celtics travel to Chicago and you might be able to spot Pierce at Tavern on Rush. It might be upscale and expensive, but it may be worth getting Pierce’s autograph. After all, Pierce is a future Hall-of-Famer at least with the Celtics.
