Oklahoma City Thunder
By Mike ShalinThe Sports Xchange BOSTON -- In most situations, Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks would be thrilled to see Jeff Green have the kind of game he had Friday night. But Friday night, Green, who now plays for the Celtics, had a big game against the Thunder, his old team. "I love him. It was good to see. 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. Green, who was traded from Oklahoma City to Boston late in the 2010-11 season before missing all of last season with a heart problem that required surgery, logged 24:36 Friday night. 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 ...
BEST OF MAXIM
So far this is dunk is about all we've seen from Green.
The Celtics have lost two in a row. They're in danger of falling below .500. This evening will be the first time Jeff Green has ever played against his former team. If all of those things don't set him up perfectly to have his best game of the year, than I don't know what does.
So far his season highs...
After having his best night of the season and helping the Celtics beat the Thunder 108-100, Jeff Green said he was not motivated by the fact that he used to play for the Thunder. Jason Terry was another Celtic who had a big night, scoring 16 points wich included a huge three-pointer with 36 seconds [...]
Jason Terry and Jeff Green lead the Celtics to their first statement win of the season tonight after beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-100.The JET hit a huge three at the end of the fourth quarter, Paul Pierce had a strong second half and Jeff Green had a strong 17-point performance off the bench to [...]
So I may have reached a bit with my headline, but I needed that win.
Fueled by Paul Pierce and Jeff Green, the Celtics beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, 108-100. While Pierce and Green deserve credit for strong individual performances, this truly was a team effort. The Celtics had 8 offensive rebounds. The bench cranked out 35 points. The defense came alive (in the 2nd and 3rd quarters...
We finally saw the Jeff Green from the preseason that had been compared to James Worthy. Let's hope that he's here to stay and doesn't regress again. He was aggressive and that's what the Celtics need from him.
Along the same lines, we finally saw some aggressiveness from the whole team. They played defense and got stops. They were aggressive going to the basket...
Trading places: Green played well against his former team
Saying "best win of the season" is cliche. But so far, this was absolutely the best win of the season. The Celtics beat the Thunder 108-100, in a game that was hardly in doubt in the final quarter. The Celtics were led by Paul Pierce who was absolutely on fire, putting up 27 points on 8-16 shooting, and of course...
Here's another edition of the Best of Tommy. When Tommy and Mike were doing the Mailbag, Tommy got a question asking who would win a championship first - Perk or Ray. His answer was classic Tommy.
Who wins a championship first: Perk or Ray? "Uggghh. Ohhhh....I'm not gonna guess. I'm just gonna say 'Mail again after the All-Star Game.'"

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. Do they want to trade back?!
The Thunder fans also seemed to get much delight out of making fun of the Rondo assist streak and his home court advantage in that regard. They also...
The Celtics hold on in Orlando tonight to beat the Magic 116-110 in OT. Looked like the Celtics would continue their stellar play from Friday night early, but a nightmare 3rd quarter where Boston’s defense vanished and Orlando shot the lights out made this a nail biter.
The Green: Rondo came out of the gate on a mission. He had 4 assists in the first 4 minutes of the game, 9 at...
BOSTON — Jeff Green found the concept baffling. His good friend and former teammate, Kevin Durant, dropped 29 points against him, yet it was suggested that he and Paul Pierce had teamed up to make the Oklahoma City Thunder forward’s night miserable.
“He still got 37 points,” Green said, before he was quickly told Durant’s actual scoring total. “Close to 30, whatever....
Spurs fans have the usual Pierce and KG hate. I'm sure the Jason Terry hate comes from his time across the state with the Mavs, but I'm not sure where all the Jeff Green hate comes from on the Spurs boards. I've put my favorite series of comments in bold. What are your favorites? Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving to all the Celtics family.
Hate the Celtics with a passion...
The Boston Celtics entered Thanksgiving with many things to be thankful for, especially forwards Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox. Both players are coming off heart surgery that ended their seasons prematurely last year.
The Celtics lost two straight going into their game against the defending Western Conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder at the TD Garden on Friday night. In those...
I just got back from an 8-hour drive this Saturday with only one thing on my mind…except for a couple X-rated things. I just wanted to sit on my couch, watch the Celtics play the not so exciting Raptors. Why would I be so enthralled over one lousy regular season game? The answer has two words. RAJON RONDOOOOOOO. Man, I haven’t been so excited over a player on the Celtics since...
