Jared Sullinger managed to make a quick impression in Denver on Tuesday night. The Boston Celtics forward earned two flagrant fouls in less than a minute.

It was a game that got away from the Celtics early. The Denver Nuggets were up by eight in the first quarter and led by 23 points at the half. The blowout kept getting bigger and the Nuggets ultimately registered their biggest win of the season in a 129-98 rout.

The Celtics didn’t seem to enjoy the beatdown and Sullinger isn’t the gentlest of players during the best of circumstances.

He picked up his first flagrant by taking down J.J. HicksonSullinger’s second flagrant was the result of an elbow to Kenneth Faried’s face.

Denver Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw must have felt inspired—he too was tossed from the game after picking up a couple of quick technicals.

It was that kind of night in the Mile High City.
