Celtics Notes: Jeff Green Rejoins Fray; Marcus Thornton Does His Thing

The Boston Celtics gave a spirited Portland, Maine, crowd Wednesday night something we haven’t seen all preseason: a competitive game. After each of their first four contests were decided by double-digits (two wins, two losses), the Celtics gave the Toronto Raptors all they could handle before a Lou Williams 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds remaining gave the defending division champions a...

Your Morning Dump… Where Evan Turner is taking some of Jeff Green’s minutes

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. “Jeff will play most of his minutes or half of his minutes at the 3, but also at the 4,” said Celtics coach Brad Stevens. “Evan has to play, whether that’s starting or coming off the bench. Evan can get...

Brad Stevens: Jeff Green Injury Not Yet Frustrating For Celtics

The Boston Celtics didn’t expect to enter the preseason without two of their most important players. But after Rajon Rondo went down with a broken hand and Jeff Green strained his calf in a scrimmage, head coach Brad Stevens has had to do some reorganizing of his starting lineup. Neither Rondo nor Green has played in the Celtics’ first preseason games — rookie James Young...

Jeff Green's calf injury shows "no progression," Monday slated as earliest possible return

Jeff Green is frustrated. The calf strain he suffered at last Friday's practice is holding him out much longer than expected. He originally anticipated being able to return to the court last Monday for the Celtics' first preseason game against the 76ers, but according to Celtics coach Brad Stevens, they are being extremely cautious with Green's injury, and the earliest...

Celtics Injury Update: Marcus Smart and Jeff Green questionable for preseason opener

The Boston Celtics had a rough 2013-2014 season in which they won just 25 games, fourth in the Atlantic Division. Although in the middle of the pack in points per game allowed, the Celtics had the 26th ranked offense, scoring just 96.2 points per game. Looking to get off to a good start this preseason, the Celtics will open tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers with injury questions...

Jeff Green: Celtics Teammates ‘Took It Upon Themselves To Get Better’

Though some stuck around to train, a majority of the Boston Celtics spent their summer scattered across the country, taking their own approaches to offseason conditioning. Jeff Green was one of those who left New England, and he’s excited to see the improvements his teammates made when training camp opens later this month. “I think we ended the season well, on a good note,...

Boston Celtics: 5 Teams That Should Trade For Jeff Green

It’s hard not to look at snapshots of Jeff Green‘s career and not come away impressed. The talent and physical tools are there: he’s 6’9″, long armed, and smoothly athletic. Early in his career, the optimism seemed justified–alongside precocious youngsters Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, Green dropped 20 or more points in 24 games in his […] Boston Celtics: 5 Teams...

Boston Celtics: The scoring of the starting five

Last week while talking about Jeff Green, I brought up how many games he scored between 0-9 points, 10-19 points, 20-29 points, and 30-39 points. I found it very interesting to see how often he scored a certain amount of points. With it being the middle of summer, and without much NBA news concerning the Boston Celtics, I decided to make a chart looking at last year’s starting...

Has Jeff Green hurt the Celtics in trading for a star like Kevin Love?

Jeff Green is more than capable to put up superstar numbers on any given night. When that night is seems to be the question. Green can give you a 41 point game, and the win, but he can also give you nothing in the next few games. Green is in his prime, but his inconsistent career has put a damper on the Celtics. They can't trade him that easily because of it, and they can'...
