GreenLights: Celtics vs Bucks Including Jeff Green’s Big Fourth Quarter

Before the Celtics face off against the Bulls in Chicago tonight, let’s take one last look at some of the highlights from Saturday’s win over the Bucks.  From Rondo’s slick reverse, left-handed lay-up to Paul Pierce and Monta Ellis’ mini-duel in the fourth quarter, to Jeff Green’s encouraging game, it’s all below. Jeff Green vs MIL: Paul Pierce vs Monta Ellis mini...

KG to Green: Some Nights You've Got to be an (expletive)

When Jeff Green first came over to the Celtics in the trade that sent Kendrick Perkins, the Celtics enforcer and resident tough guy, to Oklahoma City, he was told that the Celtics wanted him to be more aggressive and he mentioned Paul Pierce, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James as players he was trying to pattern his game after. He believes he can be successful in Boston and eventually...

Your Morning Dump… KG wants Jeff Green to be more of an a-hole

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. And nobody seemed to relish this fiesty, bad-boy side of Green more than Kevin Garnett. “Jeff’s a really, really nice guy,” Garnett said. “Some nights, you just gotta be an asshole.” And the turning point...

Video: Jeff Green was not at all happy after last night’s Boston Celtics loss

Imagine how you would feel if you returned to your locker room after (another) bad game, already pissed off, only to have a sea of reporters (most of whom will be writing bad things about you) shoving microphones into your face and asking to discuss how and why you’ve been not very good this year.The answer for Jeff Green is easy: Play better. But when he doesn’t play so well...

Jeff Green Shows Up With Some Great Defense in Fourth Quarter in Celtics’ Win Over Bucks (Video)

Celtics fans have been patiently awaiting the arrival of Jeff Green. A potent scorer with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Green joined the Celtics in 2011 but missed all of last season with a heart ailment and has had trouble fitting into the flow of the Boston offense this season. On Saturday night, though, he seemed to be doing better. As well as dropping in 12 points — eight of them...

Five things Celtics must do to win tonight

The celtics are coming off their biggest win of the season in Milwaukee Saturday night. After just one off day, the celtics are back in action tonight in the Windy City to face the 4-2 Chicago Bulls. The celtics are just 3-3, which I would call disappointing. Whenever we get down on them, they bounce back. But when we got to confident in them, like after they beat the Wizards twice...

Comments from the Other Side - Bucks 11/10

The usual complaints about the refs.   Interesting that they still have the Celtics are old thing going there.    I guess they haven't looked at the Celtics roster lately.   For some reason the gif and exchange at the end really cracked me up.  Enjoy today's comments.... Boston is old, old old. We have young legs to run. If we can get out and run like pretty...

Paul Pierce, Jason Terry, Jeff Green Show Celtics Can Still Perform Well Until Teamwide Consistency Develops

They were not quite tagging each other in and out on the sideline like professional wrestlers, but the Celtics shared the load on Saturday in a way they had not in the first two weeks of the season. With Paul Pierce leading the way, Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry, Jeff Green and Brandon Bass all assumed a bit of the scoring load down the stretch as the Celtics’ defense got a handful...

Doc's dilemma

The Celtics mantra has and always will be "we got to grind it out." they have no choice, given how their season is going.  It all boils down to trust and learning how to play in a different way. Last year's role players were great defenders, but couldn't find the hoop when it mattered. That anemic Game Seven in the  Eastern Conference Finals was oh so  painful...
