If last night we didn't witness the star we all thought Jeff Green could be, then I don't know what. Green was unconscious with a career-high 43 points (on 14-of-21 from the field, including 5-of-7 from behind the arc), 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 4 blocks. He attacked the basket with such focus and ferocity it seemed like the C's could hop on his back and ride him to victory over the Heat. Unfortunately, the win was not meant to be.
But even though the Celts fell short last night, we all witnessed a banner-worthy performance from the team - made more impressive by the fact that they played minus the talents of KG, Rondo and Sully. And it was all ignited by the man who moonlights as Uncle Jeff by day and battles hoop rivals as the Celtics' Iron Man by night. Great job Jeff!
