There were lots of reasons we lost. Terrible offense for much of the game (especially from Pierce, KG, and Green), missed free throws, and that atrocious jump ball call were some of the biggest.
Don't see the need to single out Green, particularly when KG, Pierce, and Rondo shooting as much as they did. Might as well mention Barbosa and Sully who also had poor shooting nights.
Jeff Green absolutely sucked last night. No offense (1-for-4), no movement, no energy, zero rebounds, zero assists, zero steals, zero blocks. Offensively, he hurt, and defensively he was a non-factor.
Jeff Green just can not take only 4 shots.
Last night we saw the timid Green. I hate timid Green.
I just think that's false. I saw Green calling for the ball in the post multiple times, and not once do I recall the pass being made to him.
Jeff Green is simply a role player on this team, and just like Lee and Terry some nights they'll get a lot of touches and opportunities to shoot the ball, other nights they'll barely touch it despite how they make themselves available. The way Doc's system works it'll always be like this.
Yesterday I felt it was more of an offense that didn't care to feed Jeff Green than Jeff Green being passive and uninvolved. The evidence is on how KG and Pierce played, no need to go further than that. One particular play I recall is Jeff Green on a fast-break, an opportunity for Rondo to give him the ball, instead what Green did was that he sealed off his man that allowed Rondo to get to the rim despite there being like 4 Bulls jersey's around, but that doesn't show up stat wise.
Jeff Green was ineffective with the small amount of touches he got though, but not worth pointing out I feel as being THE problem last night... in the scheme of things, insignificant.
