Jeff Green

  1. Jeff Green with the posterizing dunk over Jason Maxiell (VIDEO)

    Nov 9, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    We know. Rebuilding Celtics versus rebuilding Magic, with very few recognizable names or legitimate star power on the floor for either side. But then you see this, an aggressive posterizing dunk from Jeff Green over Jason Maxiell from Friday’s action, and you realize that the pool of individual player talent in the NBA is crazy…

  2. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…

  3. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  4. Ainge says Celtics in talks to extend Avery Bradley

    Oct 25, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    Amir Johnson, Avery Bradley

    Not to spoil a story in the first sentence, but this may well not come together. One month ago Celtics GM Danny Ainge said he would wait until next summer when Avery Bradley was a restricted free agent to talk about a new deal with him. Meaning he planned to let the marketplace set his…

  5. Gerald Wallace calls out Celtics’ teammates on effort, being “selfish”

    Oct 21, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Gerald Wallace

    It’s going to be a long season for Boston — a couple seasons ago they were up 3-2 on the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, now they are looking at how many lottery ping pong balls they can rack up. But for a professional like Gerald Wallace, what is inexcusable is a lack of…

  6. Jeff Green blocks D.J. Augustin’s shot as he hurdles him (VIDEO)

    Oct 9, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    More Jeff Green for the Celtics this season is going to mean more of this — he is wildly athletic and it leads to some dynamic plays. Like hurdling Toronto’s D.J. Augustin on the break while blocking his shot during Sunday night’s game. More Jeff Green will also mean more lines like he had in…

  7. Celtics’ Ainge doesn’t see a franchise-changing player in this draft

    Oct 3, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    I’ve taken to calling it “woeful for Wiggins” but there are a hundred different ways of phrasing the organizational tanking going on around the NBA — a number of teams are going with the “get bad to get good” strategy this year. The Sixers, Suns, Magic, Jazz and others chose this year to be a…

  8. Channing Frye on his return to Suns: ‘I never felt like I was done’

    Sep 30, 2013, 6:34 PM EDT

    Channing Frye

    PHOENIX — The big news out of Suns media day on Monday was the team making official what Channing Frye had announced personally the night before: that he has been cleared to play by a multitude of physicians, and will be back on the active roster beginning immediately. “There’s a lot of weird feelings going…

  9. Rondo could be out until December Celtics GM Ainge says

    Sep 24, 2013, 11:24 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Well, the good news is Avery Bradley is healthy and ready for training camp to start. That’s particularly good because he could be playing the point for the first couple months of the season, sharing time with rookie Phil Pressey. All that because Rajon Rondo could be out until December. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was…

  10. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Last season: For the first half of the season Boston — with veterans like Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — looked like that team everyone wants to avoid in the first round. Remember, the year before they had taken Miami seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Maybe this version of the Celtics wasn’t going…

  11. Jordan Crawford says Celtics teammates starting to look at him as leader. Okay then.

    Sep 13, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    The Boston Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team now. Well, unless they trade him, but heading into camp this is unquestionably Rondo’s team. However, if he’s not back at the start of the season (we have no timeline) then others may have to step up. There are respected veterans in that locker room such as Brandon…

  12. Doc Rivers admits Kendrick Perkins trade was a mistake

    Sep 13, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    When it went down, Celtics fans were up in arms — Boston traded Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City mainly for Jeff Green. Danny Ainge’s name suddenly came with a new adjective for Boston fans, and it’s one we can’t repeat here. Since then Boston has defended the trade and as Perkins’ production has slipped some…

  13. Jeff Green can still throw down dunks (VIDEO)

    Aug 20, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Last season it was just good to to see Jeff Green back out on the court. This season he is going to get asked to do a lot more for a Boston team in transition, we’ll see how that goes. Green was in Seattle for the Jamal Crawford pro-am and what did we learn? He…

  14. Kevin Durant, Jeff Green scheduled to play in Jamal Crawford’s Pro-Am league in Seattle

    Aug 9, 2013, 2:37 PM EDT

    durant green sonics

    Plenty of players participate in Pro-Am leagues during the summer, and it’s usually not necessarily newsworthy unless you happen to live in the community where the games are taking place. But Kevin Durant and Jeff Green returning to play in front of fans in Seattle is a bit more interesting. Durant and Green began their…

  15. Brad Stevens was a smart hire for Boston… if they really are rebuilding

    Jul 3, 2013, 9:15 PM EDT

    Brad Stevens

    I like this hire. Boston made a smart move. Brad Stevens was a coach on the rise, something a lot of people recognized around basketball. He used the principles of advanced statistics and a focus on defense to win at least 22 games a year at Butler and become one of the hottest coaches in…

  16. Celtics stuck in limbo without Clippers trade

    Jun 18, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    If the Celtics-Clippers trade is indeed dead – and like Kurt, I have my doubts – the offseason doesn’t get any easier for the Celtics. Boston is obviously ready to move on from Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers, at least if it nets a certain combination of DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe and first-round picks and…

  17. Report: Celtics tried to land Jefferson or Millsap at trade deadline

    May 31, 2013, 2:54 PM EDT

    Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson

    There has been buzz that Utah Jazz free agent Paul Millsap is the top off-season target of Danny Ainge and the Celtics. They certainly need help along the front line and Millsap would fit in that way. It’s just that the money thing makes it far more complex. But apparently Ainge was trying to land…

  18. Celtics ‘likely’ to buy out Paul Pierce? Reports conflict

    May 28, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    The Celtics are at a crossroads. Again. For the first time since grouping Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, Boston didn’t win a playoff series. So, as has become annual tradition, the Celtics are considering tearing down their team and rebuilding. Perhaps, it’s finally time. Allen is already in Miami. Garnett might retire. Rajon…

  19. It’s official: Doc Rivers will return as Celtics coach

    May 16, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers looks on in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets in New York

    Was there really any doubt? You didn’t really buy into the insane notion he would leave the Celtics to coach the Clippers, did you? Doc Rivers will be back to coach the Boston Celtics next season. GM Danny Ainge confirmed that to Gary Washburn the Boston Globe (via A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com) A league…

  20. Report: People close to Paul Pierce think Celtics don’t bring him back

    May 14, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    The video above from Sunday on Comcast Sportsnet New England, it is CSNNE’s Boston Celtics sideline reporter Greg Dickerson debating what a lot of Celtics fans are debating right now: Tear it down now or bring Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and the rest of the band back for one more year. The Celtics have until…

  21. Knicks/Celtics Game 6 all about ‘Melo, New York

    May 3, 2013, 3:40 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Garnett, Jeff Green

    We know exactly what we are going to get from the Boston Celtics in Game 6 Friday night — they are going to defend hard, Kevin Garnett is going to crash the boards and get his points, Paul Pierce will create looks for himself. They will scrap, that’s what champions on the verge of elimination…

  22. Four Game 6s, who is most likely to force Game 7?

    May 3, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks Smith reacts as the Indiana Pacers West walks across the court in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    This is going to be one wild night in the NBA — four first-round Game 6 showdowns. Four games where a team’s season hangs in the balance, and another has the chance to close out and advance to the second round. Who is most likely to force a Game 7? Let’s break it on down,…

  23. Celtics take care of business against unprofessional Knicks, force a Game 6 back in Boston

    May 1, 2013, 10:47 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Five

    The Knicks looked every bit like the second best team in the East that they were all season in getting out to a three games to none series lead against the Celtics, winning those games by 14, 16, and 17 points. Maybe the success came too soon, and too easily. After dropping Game 4 in…

  24. Celtics forced Game 5, but can they really win it?

    May 1, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Anthony reacts after a foul was called during NBA Eastern Conference semifinal playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    J.R. Smith said that if he had played in Game 4, this series would have been a sweep. Argue that if you want — quantum physics tells us there are alternate universes where he plays and the Knicks both and lose. We all care about this timeline, where Smith is back for Game 5 at…

  25. Boston lives to see another day, beat Knicks to force Game 5

    Apr 28, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Terry celebrates game winning shot against New York Knicks during overtime NBA Eastern Conference semifinal playoff basketball series in Boston

    What was it going to take for the Celtics to beat the Knicks in games this series? 1) A strong defense that contained a powerful Knicks offense. Like holding them to 34.4 percent shooting. Check. 2) Not letting Carmelo Anthony take over a game, force him into inefficient isolation shots. Such as 10-of-35 shooting. Check.…
