Anyone notice how much better the spacing has been these last 3 games? Jeff Green seems to really have benefited from it. It seems that since the ball is moving he is getting more touches in space. Thus, he has more opportunities to make plays--especially athletic plays.

 It's also great to see him doing more than standing still on the week side to touch the ball one out of every six possessions. If you think about it, it was kind of ridiculous to expect him to make those athletic plays in that role.


Hope to see more of it going forward.

Wishing a speedy recovery to Rondo and Sully

I've noticed that his whole career.
Iso-ing him works too.

I don't think it's floor spacing. It just sometimes Green comes to play, sometimes he doesn't.

Well, since January... 49% from the field for 9 points off the bench. Good month.

He's always been un-aggressive and doesn't like to pick his spots or clear out the court. He plays with the flow, but if the team gives him the side of the floor, he is able to take advantage of it.

That is a good month, but he had two months where he shot 41 and 42%. Sometimes he plays, sometimes he doesn't

very sad rondo had to get hurt for our offense to start moving the ball and to allow lee and jet to dribble drive. hopefully doc has woken up and seen the light.

One good team two crappy teams. I love the way we're playing but not enough evidence yet. Lets see how we do against the clippers.

Yes, it is true but they finally realized with the injuries that every game is going to matter when it comes to making the playoffs...they're flat out playing hard...even against crappy teams...before injuries they were collectively sleep walking waiting to turn it on after the all star break in my opinion

I think rondo having the ball in his hands 95percent of the time had alot to do with the sleep walking.
