The Celtics have once again recalled Kris Joseph from their D-League affiliate Red Claws. They certainly are using the new unlimited recall rules this year to their advantage. Since I haven't heard of any injuries, I'm wondering if this is part of Doc's shake up.
Personally, I like Joseph better than I do Jeff Green at this point because Green has been so inconsistent and passive. At least Joseph plays with passion at all times. Could Doc use Kris Joseph as a back up to Pierce in tonight's game to try to motivate Green even more than the reduced playing time did last game? It's a thought.
Joseph, a 6’7 forward, doesn't have Geeen's size, but he has a passion and brings energy to the game that so far we have only seen in spurts from Green. Joseph has appeared in 7 games for the Red Claws this season and is averaging 20.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 2.0 steals in 38.1 minutes per game. Joseph is currently ranked 5th in the NBA Development League in points per game.
The Red Claws have a pair of home games this weekend and will miss their second leading scorer (behind Micah Downs) if Joseph remains with the Celtics through the weekend.

The Celtics certainly are taking advantage of the new D-League rules that allow teams to call up and and assign players an unlimited number of times in a season. After calling Kris Joseph up from the Red Claws yesterday, Jessica Camerato is reporting that they...
Celtics recalled Kris Joseph from Maine. Again.— Ben Rohrbach (@brohrbach) December 21, 2012
Nope this isn't a re-post from the 1 million other times this happened. It happened again. And it will continue to happen again. and again. and again. and again.
Celtics' center had his best game as a pro, putting up a monster triple double of 15 points, 16 rebounds and 14 blocks to earn him Player of the Game honors. But it wasn't enough as the Red Claws (7-4) lost to the Bayhawks (6-4) 85-78. Fab's triple double is just the 3rd in Red Claws history and his 14 blocks set a new D-League record.
Fellow Celtic, Kris Joseph...
The Maine Red Claws got back into the win column with a 109-99 win over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Celtics center, Fab Melo, finished with 8 points on 4-7 shooting to go with 6 rebounds, 1 block and 4 turnovers.
Chris Wright filled in at small forward for Kris Joseph, who had been recalled by the Celtics, and filled the stat sheet with 22 points, 15 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals...
Many people feared something more serious had happened to Jeff Green in the closing minutes of last night's loss. At least a concussion, but Ed Lacerte confirmed after the game that Green's injuries were less major: A few chipped teeth (that can't be fun) and a bruised cheek. A. Sherrod Blakely speculates that Green's status for the Celtics Christmas Day game in Brooklyn...
Here's CSNNE's Jessica Camerato's recent extended interview with Celtics forward Jeff Green.

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.
Celtics forward Jeff Green sustained a bruised left cheek and chipped multiple teeth after absorbing a stray elbow from Milwaukee’s Ersan Ilyasova in the final moments of overtime in the Bucks’ 99-94 triumph...
I'm back! After being gone for the past few weeks, I am returning to Celtics Green for what I hope will be a good run. I missed being here and am thrilled to return. But, we need to focus on basketball today. Even if this is our last day on Earth, the Celtics are still important.
Tonight, the Celtics will be hosting a team they often struggle against, the Milwaukee Bucks. The...
As you might expect, Tommy had a rough night with the officiating as bad as it was in this game. I mean what happened to home cooking? Tommy was quiet for a bit after Ilyasova's elbow to Green's head was ignored and my hubby said that poor Tommy was probably on a respirator after that egregious no call. Here's tonight's Best of Tommy and there's lots of good...
Doc Rivers has changed his rotations this week. Two players impacted have been Chris Wilcox and Jeff Green. Wilcox registered a DNP last night as Doc gave Jason Collins the starting center role. Doc seems to have listened to me and has started using Green almost exclusively as the backup small forward the past two games. For one reason or another Green can not defend 4's and...
Here’s part of my afternoon Twitter exchange with Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix.
I’m intrigued by this deal. Pau Gasol would be a huge help to Kevin Garnett, the Celtics jump shot centric offense and (lack of ) rebounding.
I’d hate to give up a decade of Avery Bradley for 3 years of Gasol. And a move like this is extremely short-sighted. But I really believe Gasol could...
The Bucks did what they had to to win but I'm convinced after watching this again that many of the missed shots were due to fouls not being called on the Bucks. Yes there were open misses but there were also 3 KG layups that missed because he was hacked on the arm. The officials were terrible and it culminated in Jeff Green bleeding on the floor while play went on and the Bucks...
I don’t know where to start, so I’m just going to get to the point: other than Paul Pierce, the C’s basically could not hit a shot to save their lives for most of the 2nd half and OT. Monta Ellis and the Bucks hung-around all evening and finish the C’s off 99-94 in OT. The Bucks even tried to give the game back to Boston by blowing a 7 point lead with under a minute left...
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: Defense: Overall:
He was in hyper-aggressive attack mode for most of the night and it was a pleasure to watch. When was the last time you saw Rondo drop a 12 point, 0 assist quarter? Five of his 7 buckets came within 9 feet. His...
