Celtics roll over Suns 113-88

USA TODAY Sports

Jeff Green y'all.

Apologies for dropping the ball on the quick recap last night. I've been feeling sick and after a long trade deadline week I just couldn't stay up for the end of this one. Got it tapped though, because I want to see Jeff Green's performance and see the debut of Jordan Crawford. Here's someone else's thoughts on the game.

Starting in place of Kevin Garnett (a rest day), Jeff Green scored a season-high 31 points on super-efficient 11-of-14 shooting to go along with seven rebounds, five blocks and two steals. Green was nothing short of spectacular in 39 minutes of play, finishing plus-26 in plus/minus. Avery Bradley was the only other Boston starter in double figures (13 points), while the Celtics got a boost from their newest faces in Jordan Crawford (10 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists) and Terrence Williams (9 points, 4 assists, 4 rebounds). Chris Wilcox added 14 points -- almost all of the dunk variety -- on 7-of-9 shooting over 21:37.

"Jeff was phenomenal," Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters. "We started the game running a set we had never run in our lives. We literally drew it up right before the game. They just had the basketball IQ to keep working and they actually showed us options we didn't know we had."
