playoff basketball is different than regular season basketball, almost as much as nba is different from college. jeff green' s stats looked great in regular season, but Doc knows the guy basically scks when the intensity gets ramped up, same for kristc. how bizarre that green, murphy, kristic, all these guys ainge went out and got dont even play much. we are going with Big 4 and no help.

I think people need to realize when you are the one looking to do a trade, you have to take whatever teams are willing to offer, and the fact is, you cant get something for nothing. None of our bench were assets except for baby, and they needed to keep one constant on the bench.
I'm sure maybe they had other people on the radar, but they ended up w/ Green and Kristic. The playoff stats for green last year can be misleading.
Game 1 - 42 minutes and went 4-12...0-6 from 3
Game 2 - 41 minutes and went 2-11
Game 3 - only 28 minutes and was 3-8 on fg's
game 4 - 38 minutes and went 5-17
game 5 - 33 minutes and was 3-10
game 6 (the elimanation game) was his best with 42 minutes and 6-12 fg's
now here is the catch, he was playing PF and matched up with Pau Gasol, which is an extreme mismatch. So Danny probably thought playing the 3 here , he would play much better....You cant predict how a player will perform in the playoffs.
