Found June 12, 2013 on SCACC Hoops:
Danny Green had himself quite a night on Tuesday in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. The former Tar Heel hit 7-9 three pointers and scored 27 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 113-77 win over Miami for a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Green's shooting along with teammate Gary Neal hitting six threes helped the Spurs set an NBA Finals record for three pointers made with sixteen. Green's shooting performance was so prolific if brought back memories of his six three pointers against UNC-Asheville in the 2008-09 season. That night is best remembered for Green shooting and making his sixth three(6:36 mark of the video) with his feet on the "western" part of the Dean Dome's North Carolina logo. He would take a "heat check" three from nearly the same spot in an effort to make a seventh from beyond the arc but missed it. Needless to say Green has been beyond hot in the Finals. In three games, Green is 16-23 from beyond the arc or 69%. In game two, Green set an NBA Finals record for threes without a miss with five. Game Four will be Thursday night where Green will look to continue his hot shooting.   This article was originally published at http://tarheelblog.com (an SB Nation blog).

Danny Green, the Draft and projecting the success of an NBA prospect

Danny Green is starting for the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals. He connected on 10-of-15 shots in his first two games while averaging 14.5 points on the series. Each time he touches the basketball, though, my mind inevitably drifts into a one-sided conversation about the importance of fit and confidence in determining individual NBA success. Green, for example, did...

Danny Green Stepping Up for the Spurs

So far the MVP of this year’s NBA Finals has been Danny Green, Yes Danny Green. In Game 3 Green was part of NBA history. As a team the Spurs hit 16 threes, 7 of which came from Green. Green was 1 off the NBA Finals record of 8 three pointers in a game. Not bad for a player that was cut 3 times during his career. Green is 12 of 14 his last two games behind the three point line...

Danny Green Insists ‘Something’s Not Right’ With Dwyane Wade, Downplays Spurs’ Defensive Job on Heat Star

Danny Green certainly isn’t cocky, which is surprising, given his lights-out shooting thus far in the NBA Finals. Still, the Spurs guard, who shrugged after Game 3 that his team’s success in reining in LeBron James has as much to do with James “stopping himself” as with anything the Spurs have done, stayed on the humble train on Thursday. Green was asked about his (and his...
