Jeff Green has improved lately in so many ways - his shots are falling, he's playing better defense, he seems to be rebounding better and he just looks quicker and more athletic.

One thing I've noticed in the last two games though is that he seems to be picking up a little of that KG angry.  This guy has had about 5 dunks over the last 2 games and they weren't soft finesse dunks either, they were hard "in your face with attitude" dunks. 

Also after each of those dunks he his face had the expression of an angry Mike Tyson after just delivering a knockout blow.

Has anybody else noticed this?  Is our little Jeffrey growing up?

I sure hope so!!!

His dunks have certainly been angry. I'm not sure about overall, I don't want to start believeing and then see him go passive for a couple of games. It's such a let down

I've noticed he's taking less jumpers as well.  Over the last two games he seems to be driving about 3 or 4 times for every jumpshot he attempts. 

I like that attitude because I think Jeff is at his best when he's driving aggressively.  He's athletic enough to get by almost any defender he's up against, and I think he's only starting to get that confidence now,

P.s.

I just realised I accidentally posted my two latest theads in the Games reat rather than the general one - mods please feel free to move if you need to :)

I think it's the anniversary of his surgery. The memory of that and all he's been through in the last 12 months. It's given more intensity and courage to his play.

I don't think it'll last but it's nice to see.

Praise for Green ... I was ruff on him early...so now he gets high praise for bringing something off the bench.

His game is a work in progress, maybe he was never really allowed to grow playing behind  Ibaka, Hardin, Durant , Westbrook , ect ...

Greens body lanuage , and decsion making is better.  He seems to know what he wans to do with the ball.  He is hesitating less, not givng his opponents time to react.

LOVe to count on him for 12/5 a game and some good "D"

I'm in the camp that still has faith,  he just needs to BE on the court.

We have him for 3 more years after this, so might as well keep the faith.

Honestly if he can give this team tonights effort, I'd be happy.
