Brad Stevens' game planning and Evan Turner's clutchness have kept the Boston Celtics' playoff hopes alive

What has kept the Boston Celtics afloat without their top scorer, Isaiah Thomas? Teams aren't expected to improve after losing their best players, but the Boston Celtics have made a trend of that this season. First it was Rajon Rondo, then it was Jeff Green, and most recently the Celtics have taken it to the next level with Isaiah Thomas out with a lower back injury. The Celtics were two games behind Charlotte for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference when it was announced on March 10 that Thomas would miss time. Their postseason dreams were suddenly in doubt, but they have gone 5-3...

The Mavericks have no clue how to guard the Grizzlies' front court

Dallas lost big against the Grizzlies and a lot of it had to do with defensive mismatches. On Sunday night I rewatched parts of the Mavericks' loss to Memphis. I was at that game on Friday and spent half of my time in the press box genuinely confused at how Dallas was attempting to defend the Grizzlies' front court. I wanted to watch it again to confirm I wasn't crazy, and ... welp. Here's the problem: Dirk can guard Kosta Koufas. He cannot guard Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph or Jeff Green. Tyson Chandler can guard Koufas, Gasol and Randolph, but he'll struggle against Green. Amar'e Stoudemire...

The Different Shades of Jeff Green

There has been a lot said about Jeff Green's place on the Memphis Grizzlies. What if everyone was right? They may well be, but in the interest of championships it would benefit Green & the Grizzlies to better sift through the shades of their recent struggles. It is hard to start over. A good number of people know this, of course. You leave a place that feels like home, that just seems right, and it can be difficult to come to terms with the fact that that portion of your life is done. Those people who once were a part of your day-to-day existence are now all of a sudden gone, those sights &...

Born to Run: Jeff Green Bolsters Grizzlies' Transition Attack

The Grizzlies don't get out in transition much, but they are great at it when they do. Let's take a look at why they are so successful when they run the floor and how midseason acquisition Jeff Green makes them even more dangerous on the break. Jeff Green has not fully been who the Grizzlies hoped he would be — particularly on offense — when they acquired him earlier this season. Coach Dave Joerger continues to tinker with lineups, and the optimal spot for Green in the rotation has yet to be found. While the best use of Green within the Grizzlies offense remains heavily debated, one...

Against all odds, the Celtics are a legit playoff contender

Too legit, too legit to tank! This is crazy.  It defies all early season expectations.  The Celtics were not supposed to be that great at the start of the year and when Ainge traded away Rajon Rondo and Jeff Green it appeared that all eyes would be focused on the draft at this point in the season.  Instead, improbably, we're focused on the playoff race. celtics - Celtics' grit grinds Green, Grizzlies - WEEI | Ben Rohrbach The Rondo and Green trades were supposed to signal the season’s end, sinking the Celtics deeper into the tank, only a funny thing happened on the way to the lottery....

Grizzlies Dispatch From Boston: Maximizing the Jeff Green Effect

BOSTON - At times, Jeff Green has been the man the Grizzlies thought he would be - the strong-willed, athletic wing scorer whose play could put them over the top in the mighty Western Conference. At others, like Wednesday night, he could score just 11 points, grab only four rebounds, miss a breakaway dunk, and be the lackluster, inconsistent player whose potential appears to be wasting away with every touch of the ball. It's the story of Jeff Green's career, one filled with frustration for anyone who watches him regularly. On one night he could score 37 points and win the game on his own....

Notebook: Green's quiet return

BOSTON -- Jeff Green's return to Boston passed with barely a whimper. Two months after being dealt to the Memphis Grizzlies, Green returned to play his former team on Wednesday night at TD Garden. There was no emotional video tribute that greeted heroes from the 2008 title team on their first trip back to Boston. About the only hint that Green had ties here came when he got a warm response from the Garden crowd after being introduced last for the Grizzlies in pregame warm-ups.

Jeff Green is still Jeff Green in Memphis

Consistently inconsistent. Jeff Green returns to Boston tonight and it seems like a good time to check in on our old friend.  The Griz got off to a hot start with Green in the mix and it was looking like both sides made out great in the deal. Grizzlies-Celtics Preview - Yahoo Sports The Grizzlies are 19-7 since acquiring Jeff Green from the Celtics, including 13-2 when he scores 12-plus. Green had been Boston's top scorer at 17.6 per game. Boston (26-36), though, is 14-13 since that deal and two games behind Charlotte for the East's final playoff spot. Still, things have cooled off a...

Celts will look different to Green

One day before Rajon Rondo returned to TD Garden for the first time in a visitor's uniform and eleven days before the trade that changed his own gameday laundry, Jeff Green sat on the sideline at the Boston Celtics' practice facility and struggled to fathom what it would be like to play against his old team so soon after being dealt away. "I don't want to know how that feels because I don't want to be traded," said Green. Alas, a trade was inevitable.

Ed Davis Rejects Jeff Green Trade, Sends Him Back to Boston

As has happened to many Lakers opponents this season, Jeff Green thought he was in the clear for a basket: He was not.

The referees may be tanking tonight, because Jeff Green just blatantly traveled with no whistle blown: Of course he hit the jumper right aftter too.

The Grizzlies are better equipped to deal with the flaws of starting Tony Allen than those of Jeff Green

The crux of the season? It's no secret that the Grizzlies have struggled out of the gate with their starters since the All-Star break. Also not so secret is Tony Allen's emotional reaction to being relegated to coming off the bench. And it's hard to blame Tony: if you see your team struggling it's got to be pretty excruciating to sit and wait for your time on the court. So what do the Grizzlies do about the starting conundrum? What we know The Grizzlies starters are struggling. Neither Tony Allen nor Jeff Green can really shoot. Both Tony Allen and Jeff Green are at their best when...
