Trans. Nov 27 2:58 ET (Nov 27 2:58 ET ) Gerald Green and the Phoenix Suns returned to their winning ways while continuing their excellent 3-point shooting. They may have to keep it up to stop the high-scoring Denver Nuggets from extending their run at home.
Gerald Green scored 24 points against the Nuggets during a 120-112 win on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, two assists and six 3-pointers in 26 minutes.
The Scoop:When he's on, he's on. Green has been very busy in the fourth quarter when he plays and he's racked up a whopping 13 triples over his last three games. Isaiah Thomas (ankle) did not play tonight and it's pretty clear Green will see a massive bump in production when Thomas, Eric Bledsoe or Goran Dragic need to miss game action. He is still going to be inconsistent, but feel free to give him a look until IT3 is back.
Gerald Green played 30 minutes against the Raptors on Monday with 13 points, three rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers and five turnovers.
The Scoop:He played down the stretch at small forward as the Suns looked to make a comeback. Green's minutes have been all over the place and he only saw 11 minutes of playing time back on Friday. The ups and downs are going to be very annoying to his fantasy owners, so he's not a must-own player.
Gerald Green caught fire against the Pacers on Saturday with 23 points, three rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers on 8-of-15 from the field in 22 minutes.
The Scoop:He had the worst year of his career in Indiana in 2012-13 and the Pacers basically just threw him in for their deal to acquire Luis Scola last season, but he showed them a thing or two tonight. Green is still going to have his minutes in check, but nights like these make him fun to own. On the other hand, he'll have his 5-point nights quite often too.
Gerald Green hit 6-of-13 shots and zero 3-pointers for 12 points, three rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block off the bench on Wednesday.
The Scoop:After getting eight minutes and failing to score last Friday, Green played 28 minutes and blew up for 26 points and four 3-pointers on Saturday. He backed that up with seven points in 20 minutes on Monday, and then tonight's 12-point game in 22 minutes. The way things are going for Green, he's due for a monster game, just as his frustrated new owners are ready to pull the plug.
