When good Jeff Green show up for a game, he is so much fun to watch.
That Green turned up Monday for Memphis, and they wouldn’t have gotten the win over a feisty Orlando team without him.
That starts with hitting the runner/hook shot in the lane that sent the game into overtime (video above). That’s a tough shot but the Magic had defended the play pretty well, Green just nailed it. Good on Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger here not calling a timeout (which lets the defense set itself, too) and trusting his players to do the right thing. It worked. Then in overtime, Mike Conley scored five points to lead the Grizzlies to the 108-102 victory.
Earlier in the game, Green got up and put Jason Smith in a poster.
