Found November 25, 2012 on Red's Army:
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 halftime, and finished with 16 to go w/15 pts & 9 boards. Leandro Barbosa was huge in the first-half. Before getting into foul trouble, he notched 11 points in 4 minutes, including 2 from downtown. He tallied 15 on the night. Offensively, the usual suspects, Truth and KG combined for 47 points and notched big shots down the stretch. Brandon Bass struggled a bit, going 5 of 14 from the floor, but he had 12 boards, 5 of them offensive and a few huge rebounds late in the 4th and OT to keep the C’s in the game. Have to also mention Sully. He continues to shine off the bench. His 6 boards tonight were all on t...

Recap: Celtics salvage season with huge victory over Thunder

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...

Celtics vs Thunder Wrap Up

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...

Green Envy: What Thunder fans said - 11/23

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....
