Green returns against Raptors, but Celtics fall on final second three

I liked how the Celtics played tonight. They missed a lot of baskets that should have went in, or could have went in. Green is still trying to get his legs back, but in Boston's first play Turner, and Green perfected a pick-and-roll that led to a Green slam. Green finished with nine points on 3-of-12 shooting in Boston's 92-89 loss. Marcus Thornton played great off the bench again, leading the Celtics with 17 points in 17 minutes.

It was March 16, 2012, and the Celtics were wedged into Sacramento’s infamously narrow visitor’s locker room.Then C’s coach Rivers had a trivia question that night.“Can anyone name me the Kings’ leading scorer?” he asked, getting shrugs and blank stares from everyone.Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and the whiz kid himself, Rajon Rondo, were all stumped.“It’s Marcus Thornton,” Rivers said.

The downside to Marcus Thornton on the Boston Celtics

The downside to Marcus Thornton on the Boston Celtics

The newly acquired Marcus Thornton can be a huge contribution to Boston's rebuilding process. But then again, can he? Marcus Thornton is a fresh face in Boston after being involved in a three team trade that cleared cap space for the Cavaliers to sign LeBron.  While this deal seemed to benefit the Cavs in that they landed the King, the Celtics came away with a handful of useful talent...Thornton being one of them. Previously with the Nets, this score first shooting guard can find numerous ways to put the ball in the basket.  And after the Celtics ranked 27th in offensive efficiency last...
