I've been focused in on green lately as most disappointing player so far but im starting to notice lee has been almost as bad if not as bad. I was surprised to see him in the game over terry when terry was having a great game. Unless it was for defensive purposes and even then id rather have terry in there closing the game over lee.

Second video is another must watch classic KG interview.

Garnett says Jeff Green's a nice guy but should be something KG "can't really say what he wants to say" instead. Hilarious. Even has a vein on his head and was saying it through clenched teeth.

And in the same video is the cap, sounding like a real vet and a real captain.

This is the kind of veteran leadership I'm talking about.

LOL ...very funny ;D

He played better , but look , he was sucking so bad , he could only play better. 

The whole team finally looked like they were playing together "AS A TEAM"  for moments anyway or enough to get the win.

Jeff Green has a LONGGGGGGGGGGGGGG way to go to prove his worth , LOL ...I need a run of about 6 -10 games where he adds 12 points and 7 boards a game to prove he is even CLOSE to being worth his paycheck. I did like his efforts to rebound , at least he wan't shy about getting under the rim and banging some.

If he can be consistant ( what makes a real NBA star) see Kobe , Pierce, LBJ, Love and such well  then I know he has turned the page.

Until I see the output and hussle over a longer amount of games , I'm still on the Josh Smith band wagon.

The fact that he has a 'switch' that has to be flipped to find that aggression is a dirty shame. He has pleanty of talent if we can unleash it. I bet KG has been angrily  looking all over for that thing. Shame on Jeff for making that vein pop out on KG's noggin, I used to do that to my parents for other reasons ;)

Nice game, now how bout another?

I don't think he can create on his own. When he was put in isolation he couldn't do anything. But when he got the ball with his momentum already going (even if it was just a hand off) he beat his man to the hoop.

I think we should use him like we used Bradley last year (make him cut and be active constantly) because he seems to play better in motion.

I think there's something to the argument that he's been out of basketball too long and he's taking a while to get back in the swing of things. His free throw percentage is a great example- just a sign that he hasn't got his confidence back yet. If you look at his numbers, they are way down across the board so far this season- yet he has moments.

It's a long season. I think that after a couple months of .500 we're going to be turning a corner and getting really excited about Green, Wilcox, Lee, and Sullinger.

Great second half from Green. Provided a great spark for us. And how does he get rewarded? By Doc taking him out when he was basically our only offensive threat with a hot hand. I just dont understand it sometimes.

Doc took Green out with 5:05 to play to get KG back in for the final 5 minutes of the game.  Pierce was taking free throws at that stoppage and obviously you aren't taking him out of the game at the end!   At that point, Green had played for 12 straight minutes on the clock (last 5 of the 3rd and first 7 of the 4th) so it made sense to give him a rest.

He then stuck Green back in with 1:48 to go in place of Bass.  He briefly took Green out to get Terry in as a shooter with 25 seconds to go, but 3s later he put Green back in in place of Lee and left him in to the end.

So basically, Doc played Green all but about 3 minutes of the final 17m of the game.

Something lit a fire under Jeff Green at halftime. I think you're onto something that it may have been KG.

First half he looked very tentative, forcing passes, especially inside, where they got turned over.

Hopefully the second half, and especially his crunch time performance is what we'll get more of consistently as the season goes on.

Regular season is a whole different ballgame though. It's like the difference from playing pickup ball with your friends and playing a regular season competitive high school game.

Green will be fine, he's still adjusting to the full on NBA competition.

He had a missed dunk down the lane in which he drew a foul ( I think it was sometime in the third quarter) which, to me, seemed to change his whole approach to the game.  Instead of driving and trying to contort his body when he gets in the lane, he started going much stronger and more forcefully.  Those two consecutive straight line drives, one going right, one going left where awesome.  He followed that up with a very confident looking score on the low post.  Add in his chase down block (goaltending?), and his late game strip, and it adds up to a very nice game.

Hopefully, he can start to relax a little and just play now.  He's been picked as the guy who is going to be under the most intense scrutiny by the fans and the media this year. 

If he can let it go, and just play ball, he will really be able to help this team.

I agree, the entire team should take a lesson from Brandon Bass on going up strong to draw the foul.  Ours guys simply do not get enough respect from the refs to keep trying with the finnesse.

True !!  Bass is making extra effort this season , to work harder around the bucket , and I see it paying off.  Finally good have couple bigger fellows (Bass & Sully) grabbing at rebound and working the ball in low.  Both shoot freethrows decent.

Celtics should pound the ball in side to adnausium . Thats the HEATS game. Hurl your body at the rim and throw the ball up and at least you get freethrows. Then when the defense is packed in , pass the ball out to LEE , Rondo PIERCE and JET to shoot 12-15 ft jumpers.  The defense is drawing the Celtics too far out and then we don't take it inside , waste time and throw up a sorry long two shot that is turned into a fast break for the other team.

Green , has the speed and jumping ability to work around the bucket.  He needs to practice those James Worthy twists and turns and fakes.
