Now, how clutch is this kid? SFs that can shoot better than him are only the big-4 (Melo, James, Durant, Pierce)... JUST ANOTHER GREAT QUALITY

Without him, we would have lost today. ;)

Nine players shot double-digit field goals today. Only one of us shot at more than 50%: JEFFREY LYNN GREEN

His eFG% on jumpshots is .398.  That's not even good, much less elite.

I agree with the second part of your post though.

You know what they say, "makes 'em when they count."

Pierce, Garnett, Terry, Green all did that today! Three of those maybe HOFers. The fourth.... our favorite!

Sure - maybe top 5 in the Altantic Division?

He's averaging 10 and 3. His assist to turnover ratio is horrible, and he's arguably the worst rebounder for his size in the NBA.

At least he's starting to actually contribute on defense. It's a start.

If this is the Jeff Green Ainge and Rivers traded for you can build a team around him.

First, I'm grateful he'sin my Pick Two team.

But really, he is a top-3 player on this team and his upside isn't nearly reached. This outburst is the first of many.

Will he ever get the respect (I think) he deserves? Unlikely.

That surgery was a bummer, and if he hadn't had it god knows how good he could be. But I think he learned a lot from it too. We can only hope Rondo pulls a Green and comes back strong

Nothing in Green's career justifies your optimism. He's a 15 points per 36 minutes guy on mediocre efficiency. That's who he is.

You get so angry when anyone says they think Green has potential. He looked pretty good tonight... and has continued to look good for weeks now. With nothing but more upside.

No, maybe not top 5 SF, but certainly potential to be better than 15/36, especially with the right squad

There was like a 4 game stretch when Jeff played in okc ,Durant was out ,and jeff scored over 30 a few times and averaged in the mid 20's.

I am starting to wonder if he can be a go to scorer like Harden has turned out to be when he got the chance to be the #1 option?
