I was hoping he'd have it against Orlando Sunday and not tonight," Brooks said after Green came off the bench to score 17 points, including seven straight in a critical 11-0 run late in the third quarter, to help Boston end a two-game losing streak with a 108-100 win over the Thunder.

He went 6-for-11 from the floor, 5-for-5 from the foul line and helped Paul Pierce with the task of playing OKC star Kevin Durant. "Jeff is a really good player," said Durant, who ...

Celtics vs Thunder Wrap Up

Green Envy: What Thunder fans said - 11/23

It's kind of funny to get Thunder fans perspective on this Jeff Green trade. It seems like they feel the same way about Perk that we feel about Green, especially after Uncle Jeff's big game tonight.
