Celtics forward Jeff Green sustained a bruised left cheek and chipped multiple teeth after absorbing a stray elbow from Milwaukee's Ersan Ilyasova in the final moments of overtime in the Bucks' 99-94 triumph on Friday night at TD Garden.

Green and Ilyasova were chasing a rebound after Monta Ellis missed the back end of two free throws in a one-point game with 18 seconds to go in the extra session. Ilyasova managed to tip the ball, but landed an elbow to the left side of Green's face as they pursued the ball. Ellis ended up with his own rebound and the Celtics were forced to foul to both prevent Milwaukee from running out the clock and to get Green off the floor.

Get better! One of the better games last night. Green finished with 14 points on 4-of-9 shooting with three rebounds, four steals and two assists.

This is what happens when you are a soft team. This guy hammered Green with no concern for what might happen to him, no concern for unpleasant return favors, and then punked him after hammering him. It's pathetic. I never thought I'd see that, but this year, we've seen it over and over. It started last year with Rondo getting roughhoused. Other teams have no fear of the Celtics whatsoever. They see us as easy targets, pushovers.
