Jeff Green's stock is rising among the NBA's elite players. If you haven't seen the addition by subtraction Celtics lately, it's obvious that Green is starting to fulfill his potential as an NBA star. Certainly he hasn't achieved it yet, but the learning curve is going up up up and he's becoming a force on the floor both offensively and defensively. Green is coming off a life changing physical rehabilitation and it looks like his self-confidence in his own physical abilities are in direct proportion to his upward trending game time output. He was locked in last night vs Phoenix and don't be surprised for more 30 point plus scoring outbursts in the NBA's back half of the season. Jeff Green is a rising STAR.
After close scrutiny of what the Celtics are up against on their up coming west coast road trip...and other variables like the loss of key scoring producers and a Doc Rivers focus on half court offense after the all-star break. I conclude the under will look good in the Celtics first few games back no matter what Vegas puts out there.
