I think it's safe to say that tonight was the best offensive performance for the Celtics in terms of both points scored and efficiency. In 48 minutes the Cs poured in 118 points and shot blistering percentages of 54 and 48% from the floor and downtown respectively. Unfortunately you can't say the same for their defense. The effort on that end of the floor was poor to say the least and Boston allowed some guy named Mike Scott (Who?) to score 19 points. Luckily for the Celts, Atlanta's defense was just a lot worse. Doc Rivers had his offense running like a well-oiled machine tonight. Four of his men scored in double figures, including three who scored over 20. Jeff Green led the attack by scoring 27 points on 11-20 from the field. Green continued to assert himself and refuses to be stopped on his way to the rim. He also has no problem pulling up for a jumper whether it's from mid-range or three point land. Tonight marked the third straight 20+ point outing for...

Jeff Green hit a buzzer beater in Cleveland on Wednesday night to lift the Celtics to a 93-92 win, and following the winner he hugged a man who saved his life a little over a year ago. Dr. Lars Svensson was the recipient of a hug, and a well deserved one, as he performed open heart surgery on Jeff last year to mend an aortic aneurysm. Jeff Green spoke after the game to Boston.com...
Entering this season many wondered about the role of Jeff Green! How would he play coming off of heart surgery! Would he get enough starts? Could he play at a high level? Would he fit in with the team? Was he worth that trade a few years ago? Well these past few weeks….Jeff Green seems to have answered all those questions with an exclamation point!
First he scored a whopping 42...
Jeff Green made an improbable layup as time expired Wednesday to give Boston a 93-92 win over Cleveland on the road. It was the kind of euphoric moment kids dream about and was certainly a big moment for Green, as it would any other player.
His Celtics earned a key win late in the season with Playoff races tightening up and it was a great moment for a young player to have the...

Call it heartbreaking, heartwarming or heart stopping but, any way you look at Jeff Green's last second buzzer-beater in Quicken Loans Arena, don't call it disheartening.
Green's last second layup to give the Boston Celtics a 93-92 victory on the home floor of the Cleveland Cavaliers was all that more special to the Celtics player because the man responsible for Green...
Dr. Lars Svensson is the reason Jeff Green is still playing NBA basketball, the reason why Green was on the court to hit the game-winner to beat the Cavaliers on Wednesday night. In December 2011, Dr. Svensson performed heart surgery in Cleveland on Green after he was found to have an aortic aneurysm – he missed the entire 2011-12 season. A season later, he’s one of the key...
Celtics fans have been waiting on Jeff Green's breakout stretch, and we all thought it had started the night he tallied 43 points against the defending champs. Unfortunately, we were sorely mistaken as he followed up a career performance with a mediocre 13 point outing at New Orleans. After that match-up with the Hornets, Green eked out two 10 point nights in both Dallas and...
The Boston Celtics edged out the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night thanks to an amazing layup at the buzzer by Jeff Green. With 2.1 seconds remaining, Jeff Green catches the inbounds pass and penetrates Cleveland’s lackluster defense and lays it in; watch the clock as the ball leaves his hand at .4 seconds remaining. That’s an [...]The post Celtics’ Jeff Green’s Game...
About 14 months ago, Celtics forward Jeff Green wasn’t sure he’d live, let alone play professional basketball again because of a rare heart condition.
The Celtics played the Cavaliers in Cleveland last night, and for Green it was a semi-homecoming considering how much time he spent at the Cleveland Clinic.
Last night Green hit a buzzer beating lay-up, to give the Celtics a 93...
I’m loving this new Jeff Green “R-I-S-E” mix from YouTube user GoldenHoops. One of the best Green mixes I’ve seen this season. Also, here’s a sit down that Jeff and Jason Terry did with CSNNE’s Greg Dickerson the other night. The highlight of the clip is at around the 5:30 mark when Jeff is asked about KG’s intensity. Great stuff:
In a show much of which was spent lambasting the Bruins and GM Peter Chiarelli for not being able to close a deal, (that’s a whole other topic) Michael Felger decided he needed to poke the Celtics as well, specifically Jeff Green, who hit the game winning shot the night before.
When anyone undergoes heart surgery, it’s a big deal. The issue Jeff Green (and Chris Wilcox) had last...
Tonight, the Celtics finally put on a good performance with a huge, 118-107 win over the Hawks. With the win, the Celtics are now just 1.5 games behind Atlanta for the six seed. They need that six seed. Their chances of being an underdog title winner are 0 if they open the playoffs in Indiana. I'd much rather play Brooklyn.

In so many ways, the Celtics resemble the spirit of Dante about to enter his journey into Hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice. Beatrice is of course Banner #18 and Hell will surely be surviving with success to the 2013 playoffs entering as a 6th seeded team at best in the East. We could continue with the analogies with Dante´s marvelous opus by giving the role of the Devil to LeBron...
Somehow, I had never seen this before until today. Fast forward to 2:27 for a dope sax solo or fast forward to 3:02 for closeup of the team including Doc Rivers' dancing at 3:12. Love the Jon Koncak, Scott Hastings and Tree Rollins sightings. Three 7 footers for one team means you KNOW it's gotta be the 80s or 90s.
Not bad for a team that never made it past the second...
BOSTON — Courtney Lee, limited to six minutes of playing time in his first game back from a sprained ankle, hopped up exuberantly. Chris Wilcox, mostly confined to the bench after starting the game at center, waved his towel enthusiastically. Rajon Rondo, back on the bench for the first time in two months, clapped in his sportcoat.
All along the bench, the Celtics were having a...
