Going extra mile
It was the Celtics’ first consecutive double-overtime games since March 11 and 13, 1951. They lost both games, at Minneapolis and at home to Rochester . . . Sullinger was assessed a technical along with Miami swingman Rashard Lewis with 2:46 left in the half. After a Sullinger layup, Lewis grabbed the ball out of the hoop and kept his arms around Sullinger’s neck, walking several feet with him in a Three Stooges-like routine. Sullinger finally pushed Lewis off of him, prompting official Gary Zielinski to assign double technicals . . . Allen attempted a season-high 17 shots . . . Leandro Barbosa, expected to get more playing time in Rondo’s absence, scored 9 points and had 4 assists and 3 rebounds in 30 minutes. Rivers has promised to use Barbosa more often because of his scoring ability.
