Jared Sullinger is averaging close to 13 points a game and more than eight rebounds a game in his second season with the Celtics and his first full season after his year was cut short by back surgery as a rookie.

He says the biggest adjustment to the NBA has been learning to live with a lot more losses after coming from a successful college program at Ohio State.

"If you look at it, this is the most I've lost in six or seven years," he told CSNNE Celtics sideline reporter Abby Chin. "When we lose, I've got to learn how to let it go."

Sullinger said his second season has taught him a lot.

"I'ts been huge," he said. "I'm learning the game, not only with great guys like Gerald Wallace, [Rajon] Rondo and Jeff Green. I'm learning my new game, especially with having back surgery. I'm figuring out who I am as a basketball player and what I can do and knowing I have no limitations. I think that's the beauty of this season."
