Going Green: Celtics Win at The Buzzer! [Video]

Jeff Green Hugged by Paul Pierce

Paul Pierce tackles Jeff Green after making the incredible buzzer beater against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday night.

”Jeff wanted the ball,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said. ”He asked for it by the way he was looking at me in the huddle. He clearly wanted the basketball. I sensed that and everybody sensed that.”

”(Jason Terry) set a good screen on my man, and Avery made a good pass,” Green said. ”I just tried to be aggressive and get to the rim. I’m a player.”

”It was a huge win,” said forward Paul Pierce, who had 19 points and 10 rebounds. ”We didn’t play well from the second quarter on, but we found a way. It seemed like we were mentally fatigued and physically fatigued, but we put it all together at the end.” – foxsports
