For the first time since being traded by the Oklahoma City Thunder, Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green returned to play in front of his former home crowd. In the third quarter of the game, Green got show the OKC faithful his old leaping ability as he soared to the rack with an impressive reverse slam dunk:
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The baseline reverse dunk is sort of becoming Jeff Green's thing of late. He had almost identical dunks the past two games and here they are for your viewing pleasure courtesy of our friend OfficialCelticsHD. Green struggled in his first return to OKC shooting only 2-11. I'm sure he'd trade this dunk for some more made shots and a victory vs. his former teammates.
Jeff Green rattled in a huge three pointer, then made a key steal in overtime as Boston was able to slip past Atlanta tonight, 107-102. Trailing 98-96 with 2:38 to go in OT, Green's corner 3 landed short, bounced high in the air, rolled around the rim a couple times, and fell through. Soon after Green made strip on Josh Smith in a tie game, leading to a three from Jason Terry...
When Rajon Rondo went down with his season ending torn ACL on January 25th, the Celtics were 5 games behind Atlanta, 6 games behind Brooklyn, and 6.5 games behind Chicago in the Eastern Conference standings. They caught the Hawks following Friday nights overtime win at the Garden, and now they can pull even with the Bulls if they are able to take care of business against the abysmal...
Oklahoma City Thunder’s original, Jeff Green, travels with his Boston Celtics to play the Thunder on Sunday. It’ll be a nationally televised game on ABC. That said, it’ll be a really emotional one too. His final memory in Oklahoma City isn’t exactly a great one. He bricked a really bad three-point attempt against the San Antonio Spurs, [...]
From Sean Grande:
Paul Pierce (rest) will sit out tonight in Charlotte. Jeff Green will start in his place. The Celtics host Toronto tomorrow.

As John posted about earlier, it’s now confirmed that Jeff will indeed start tonight in Charlotte. I’d love to see him take advantage of this opportunity and have a big game. We’ll see in about 1 hour…
Jeff Green's return to Oklahoma City was less than stellar.The worst part about this afternoon’s loss was the defense.I don’t mean that the defense was bad. It was fantastic. Kevin Durant shot just 6-16 from the field. Russell Westbrook managed just 11 field goal attempts. The Thunder overall were 44% from the field and 25% from 3-point range. The Celtics were on point throughout...
Although Jeff Green has gone through some trying times since arriving in Boston, he appears to be in a very good place ahead of his return to Oklahoma City.
The Celtics are also feeling great following five straight victories, but they'll face a major challenge keeping that run going Sunday against a Thunder team that's within striking distance of the top spot in the Western...
Sorry for such a late recap folks. Our staff are tied-up tonight, either travelling for Sunday’s big bash, or getting things prepared for it. I was actually at the Garden and just got to work myself, but wanted to log-on real quick & give you all a place to talk/comment on/be excited about tonight’s win. I have not seen any of the highlights, with the exception of a few YouTube...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
We could harp on the bad — and there was plenty of it, like the 19 turnovers, the poor shot selection, Jeff Green’s dud in his first trip back to Oklahoma City, Kevin Garnett’s off shooting night and a poor...

Jeff Green makes his return to OKC for the first time since he was
traded for Kendrick Perkins. Just as Perk was a fan favorite in Boston,
Jeff Green was a fan favorite in OKC and I...
Rondo and Bradley form a talented but undersized backcourt.
The title of this post might have you questioning my sanity, which might be justified, but hear me out. Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, and Jeff Green all play important positions in today's NBA which does not emphasize post play. They all have the ability to play the type of intense defense (even Rondo) that would make...
Heading into Sunday’s game against the Boston Celtics, the Oklahoma City Thunder had won four straight and looked to even this season’s series against the guys from Massachusetts. This game also served as Jeff Green’s first visit back to OKC since being traded for big man, Kendrick Perkins. The first quarter saw the Thunder jump [...]
The Boston Celtics lose to the Thunder, 91 to 79. Paul Pierce had 20 points along with 6 assists and 4 rebounds. Kevin Garnett shot very poorly, 5 for 18 from the field. Kevin Durant got 11 free throws to go for 23 points. My boy Jeff Green though had another MONSTER SLAM.
I feel like we could have won this game, we never gave up and we continued to fight. The Celtics were an 11...
We'll see you again soon?
On Wednesday in Indiana the Celtics trailed by as many as 14 points to the Pacers, but went on a very impressive 11-0 run over the final 4:35 of the 4th quarter in order to complete their come from behind 83-81 victory. Shortly thereafter the Lakers closed out their game in New Orleans with a 20-0 run over the last 6:47. They knocked off the Hornets...
