One year ago here in Cleveland, Jeff Green got a new heart. In the final two minutes tonight, he showed it to us. — Sean Grande (@SeanGrandePBP) March 28, 2013 I can’t properly explain how bad the Celtics looked for much of the second half.  They were horrible.  They turned the ball over in horrific ways.  They missed easy shots and gave up easier ones.  They let the Cavaliers shoot 54% in the second half. But they overcame a 14 point Cavs lead and closed the half on a 15-4 run, capped by a Jeff Green lay up at the buzzer to beat the Cavs 93-92. They had no business winning this game.  I Google’d “Rock Bottom” for images to use in this recap (it’s a fun search… lots of really drunk people… I recommend it).  But they won.  So screw it.  As one person tweeted me… start the getaway car and let’s get the F out of that ******** Cleveland.

Jeff Green's game winner Wednesday meant so much more

Jeff Green made an improbable layup as time expired Wednesday to give Boston a 93-92 win over Cleveland on the road.

Jeff Green Gaining Confidence

Celtics fans have been waiting on Jeff Green's breakout stretch, and we all thought it had started the night he tallied 43 points against the defending champs.

Jeff Green Hugged His Doctor After Hitting Game-Winner: I Think I Made Him Proud

Dr. Lars Svensson is the reason Jeff Green is still playing NBA basketball, the reason why Green was on the court to hit the game-winner to beat the Cavaliers on Wednesday night.  In December 2011, Dr. Svensson performed heart surgery in Cleveland on Green after he was found to have an aortic aneurysm – he missed the entire 2011-12 season.

Heart Surgery Jokes Are Hilarious, Just Ask Mike Felger

In a show much of which was spent lambasting the Bruins and GM Peter Chiarelli for not being able to close a deal, (that’s a whole other topic) Michael Felger decided he needed to poke the Celtics as well, specifically Jeff Green, who hit the game winning shot the night before. When anyone undergoes heart surgery, it’s a big deal. The issue Jeff Green (and Chris Wilcox) had last...
