Video: Celtics’ Sullinger Completes Amazing Tip-In Play vs. Pistons

Boston Celtics color commentator (and gigantic homer) Tommy Heinsohn: “Well there’s 0.2 on the shot clock, so nothing’s gonna happen here unless it’s the best tip-in play of the century.”

0.2 seconds later…

Kudos to Gerald Wallace for a perfectly placed pass for Sullinger to tap in, and to coach Brad Stevens for another well-drawn in-bounds play out of a timeout (not that he had a ton of options with so little time, since a catch-and-shoot requires at least 0.3 seconds by rule).

Of course, the Celtics still managed to fumble away that 19-point first quarter lead when Jeff Green’s driving buzzer beater missed badly, handing the Detroit Pistons a 107-106 win.

But hey, we’ll still always have the sound of Tommy cackling.
