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.
The Scoop:He was on fire and was able to add three boards, two assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers to his name in 29 minutes. After failing to hit any of his shots on Friday, this was a welcome surprise for owners who gambled on him Saturday. Green will continue to be a boom-or-bust option going forward as he will struggle to find consistent minutes unless an injury strikes the Suns.
Gerald Green fell off a cliff in Friday's loss, missing all six of his shot attempts and finishing with just one rebound in eight minutes.
The Scoop:Green is going to be a roller coaster ride and even those close to the team are resigned to the fact you have to take the good with the bad. He profiles as a late-round value if you make him a long play, but he's not likely to be a must-own player unless there is an injury in front of him.
Gerald Green scored a season-high 28 points against the Nets during a comeback 112-104 win in on Wednesday with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.
The Scoop:Green and Isaiah Thomas have been on a tear in the last two fourth quarters with a combined 53 points. Green has been very busy in his 21.7 minutes per game with a usage rate of 29.8 while the Suns are running at a pace of 100.3 possessions per 48 minutes while he's on the floor, so maybe he'll have value in standard leagues after all. If you want to ride him while he's hot and aren't attached to the guy on the end of your bench, it's not the worst idea to grab him.

Jeff Green dunks on Marcus Morris in crunch time (Ball Don't Lie) (7 Days Ago | courtesy: Ball Don't Lie) Every so often, Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green makes a play or has a game that makes him look like a player who belongs in All-Star Games. It's happened many times over the course of Green's eight-year career, to the point where it's hard to extrapolate too much from any one performance. Of course, that doesn't make it any less exciting or impressive when Green plays at such a high level. He had one such game against the Phoenix Suns at TD Garden on Monday night. Green finished with 28 points on 10-of-17 shooting, his second-best scoring output of the season so far. But Green made the most noise in the final minute. With the Celtics down 112-111 and 1:00 on the clock, Green stole a pass from Eric Bledsoe and got out in transition quickly. Marcus Morris attempted to challenge him at the rim, but Green made sure that wouldn't happen with a thunderous dunk: Green hit the free throw to put Boston up 114-112, but that proved to be their last point of the game. Goran Dragic made a lay-up off a very nice play out of a timeout to tie it, and Eric Bledsoe took advantage of this poor pass from Avery Bradley for an easy lay-in and the lead: The Suns ended up with a 118-114 win , so Green's highlight-worthy dunk was all for naught. Unless, as with his best games, you choose to look at it in isolation. Then it's still pretty darn amazing. - - - - - - - Eric Freeman is a writer for Ball Don't Lie on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?
