Asked about inconsistencies from Jeff Green, Rivers again preached patience while suggesting that there may be endurance issues lingering as he works his way back from heart surgery that forced him to miss all of last season. That said, Rivers also continued to implore Green to play with more aggression and stop waiting for Boston to call his numbers with set plays. "Jeff has to go get it if he wants it. I think, at times, he waits for us to make a call," said Rivers.
The Celtics as a team have been inconsistent all season. The face of inconsistency has been Jeff Green. I think many of us pounce on him, but maybe, just maybe we should take a step back, and remember he missed an entire NBA season with because of heart surgery. We got a great five game stretch recently from Green, but in his past few games it's been some of the worst from Green.
Maybe by the All-Star break Green will be the 12-15 point guy who plays hard, and rebounds. One can dream.
