Going back and looking at the highlights again, it really seems like Green has learned a lot of from Pierce and it really started to show last night.  Some of those jumpers near the elbows at 16-18 feet, were very reminiscent of Pierce's herky-jerky moves. 

More importantly, unlike some games, he not only drove to the basket, but seemed more concerned about drawing fouls (a clear Pierce trait) than actually hitting the shot.  Too often Green seems to shy away from contact--not because he's scared--but because he doesn't want the contact to alter his shot.  This leads to awkward angels and fade-aways.  Last night, he just drove to the basket, drew contact, and chucked it up at the rim (at one point, even backwards).  This is what he needs to be doing nightly.

Also loved the blocks and assists.  This shows just how valuable he can potentially be.

Sadly I missed the game last night and didn't set the DVR. Pretty surprised when I saw his stat line. Looks like he dominated, but since I didn't watch I can't really say. Also heard it was by far his best game as a Celtic. Statistically it would seem that was the case.

Anyways what were some impressions of his performance last night?

CSNE is replaying the game at 2 if you're around today. Or you could set DVR.

just to add the good points above, green looked much more confident in his offensive game and was aggressive. all good and his shots were falling from all locations.

his defense is still not as good as it should be given his physical abilities. at times he played adequate to ok defense. but at other times he simply missed switches or was beaten by opponents.

over all, he is looking much better.

He was truly a man amongst boys yesterday his perfomance was a dominating one and that is putting it lightly.  Doc and even pierce let the offense run through green last night and they didn't just have him sit in the corner and shoot threes. People might say i'm crazy but his post up game is better than lebrons and green will get better.  I believe if rondo does come bck to this team that he (rondo) will have to change his game.

His game last night was one of the more dominating games I've seen this season by anyone, including LeBron. He was that good. A truely impressive performance.

You're going a bit far with this comment, sorry.
Lebron dominates more then Jeff did last night...every single game

Yeah I just checked. I live in NJ and my directTV doesn't get that channel. I wish League Pass would show re-runs.

Thanks for the information though.

Three point shooting.
Blocking.

He looked really good. Blocking 5 shots was really nice. But i was impressed with his jumper. Hitting from everywhere which is really great cause haven't seen him take to many jumpers outside of 3's in the corner and post up fadeaways. Do I see him doing that every night? No can he do half of that every night. DEF! For sure he can avg. 15 ppg and 5 rpg.

He was the best player on the court by far. He was too fast for every player that guarded him, so they left him space and he used this space to knock down almost every jumper he took, essentially making him unguardable.

He proved once again that he is an excellent two-way player. We are very lucky that Danny didn't move him, that would have been a huge mistake. I would not move him for Josh Smith, no way.

I can only say, it was bound to happen sometime. I expected it, and also expect him to have more thirty point games this season. Lets go Green!

He was great last night. I was only a bit concerned that he only has one move to the basket and that's going right. I wonder when other teams will catch up on that.

As long as people respect his shot, not sure if it'll matter much, particularly since he usually can out-quicken his defender.

That's probably the quote of his career.
