Green leads Celtics past Bucks 102-86
Question of the Day
The team’s leading scorer clearly got the message.
“He passed one up in the first half that I was mad at him about,” Stevens said. “That was kind of the gist of our halftime talk. We can’t pass up open looks because that’s what they were giving us. He really didn’t pass any others up. He missed his first one of the third quarter and then really shot it well the rest of the night.”
“I am confident in every shot I put up,” Green said. “Whenever it leaves my hand, I am confident that it will go in. I kept shooting, and they started to fall. That is my game, driving to the rim.”
“That’s when he’s played his absolute best,” Stevens said. “He hit shots today that were really good shots and then he made some tough ones late. He got himself going by getting to the basket and by shooting it off screens.”
Kelly Olynyk added 14 points and 11 rebounds for his first career double-double for the Celtics.
“They were helping a lot on Jeff in the lane in the fourth quarter and I was able to get a couple of open shots as well,” Olynyk said. “We pushed the ball in transition and got some easy baskets. Jeff hit a bunch of big-time shots for us down the stretch.”
The Celtics used a 12-4 run to start the final quarter to break things open. Green had seven points during the spurt and 11 overall in the quarter, while Olynyk scored 10 after Boston entered the fourth clinging to a 70-68 lead.
Jared Sullinger added 13 points and 10 rebounds for Boston, and he drew praise, along with Olynyk, from Stevens.
“They can handle the ball,” he said. “They can do all kinds of things. It was good to see them both with double-doubles. I was pleased with how those two young guys played.”
Brandon Knight had 22 points for Milwaukee, which also got 17 points from Gary Neal and 16 points from John Henson, who left late in the game with a foot injury.
“We went flat. Our energy went down and they took advantage of that,” Knight said of the Bucks‘ fourth-quarter performance.
