is Green finally turning the corner?
« on: December 07, 2012, 10:28:02 PM »
after a rough start to the season, Green has quietly put together a consistent stretch of play the last 2 weeks, ever since rondo got suspended actually...he's looking for his shot, rebounding better and defending better IMO

his last 4 games

19points
8points
18points
19points

hopefully this is the start of what we will see going forward from Green because we are going to need it, and it puts more into focus why Ainge spent the money on him that he did

Maybe... I don't wanna get my hopes up though. Everytime I do with this guy, he puts up a dud. So I'm just gonna wait it out.

need to see more from green than 5 ok games. Blatche is making much less and doing much more. hes avg 19/11 over the last 5 games and yet we were wondering whether or not even to give him a minimum contract this season would much rather have him on the celtics right now than green.

i wouldnt slight Green while sayin dat cuz we needed a backup for Pierce. If u said u would rather have Blatche then Collins or Darko i'd cosign dis statement to da max Dray was always talented good to see him finally puttin it together

I think greens game tonight was more than just "ok" the scoring was nice, but he also has been rebounding better and  played well in the closing lineup

we'll have to see if he can keep doing this going forward but you have to be encouraged by his play lately. he seems to be settling into his role

I would trade Bass for Blatche right now. So we can have Blatche and Green on the Celtics

Yeah. He's finally doing the jack of all trades thing they've been pegging him with.

CLee is coming around too. He's a shooters and shooters go into slumps. It's not like a certain someone hasn't gone into slumps before with us and we stuck with that guy.

his defense has been solid...not sold on his offense yet...I have a feeling if Bradley comes back healthy Lee is going to lose playing time

I bet green could average what pierce is averaging if he shot as many shots and played as many mins.

still not enough good performances to proclaim he's getting it but there's at least reason for optimism

Starters:
Kyrie Irving, Kevin Martin, Luol Deng, Serge Ibaka, Nikola Vucevic.

HA!!! I know the feeling...everytime I cheer him , he has a huge letdown.  I willsay I'll take his offensive effort tonight anytime.   He has work to do on "D" and his jumper .

I would like to see what he could do taking the starting job for game and seeing how he reacts.  ???

Up to Doc to SEE WHAT  GREEN can give as a starter?

Barbosa is.

Lee has been playing well.

I can never tell if these comparisons are jokes, but Green doesn't even remotely resemble James Worthy to me.

He has looked good lately, though.
