CLEVELAND - The Boston Celtics came into this game riding a five game losing streak. They finally got it back on track with a close win against the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night. We saw a different starting lineup for Boston in the win against Cleveland. Boston won 93-92, with Jeff Green hitting the game-winning-layup to put Boston up by one. Kevin Garnett was once again inactive for the Celtics, so Chris Wilcox started along side Paul Pierce, Jeff Green, Avery Bradley, and Brandon Bass. Bass had a huge game for the Celtics, scoring 22 points and grabbing six rebounds. Bass has been having a tough year, but this game definitely showed that he can still get the job done when needed. Pierce had 19 points to go along with 10 rebounds and eight assists; a near triple double. Pierce needs five more steals to pass Terry Porter for 28th on the NBA's all time steals list. Bradley had a mediocre game, scoring only three points. Green had 21 points to go along with the game winning ...

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...

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.

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...
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...

The first time that many basketball fans heard the name Jeff Green, it was probably at Georgetown University, when he won Big East Player of the Year in 2007. He was a special athlete and definitely a player who could become an All Star. He was selected 5th overall by the Boston Celtics and was traded to the Seattle Supersonics as a part of the Ray Allen to Boston trade.
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.
