Halftime Hot Take: Gerald Green!

Prior to the start of Game 4 , we learned Gerald Green was set to return to the starting lineup after his 8-point performance in Game 3. No one was ready (especially not the Bulls) for what would come next.

At the half, the Celtics lead 57-46 , and Gerald Green is on a tear, already having recorded (16) points and (5) assists. Twitter has erupted, and NBA fans all over are loving the 9-year veteran’s performance:

In just (16) minutes, Green has shot 6-9 from the field and 4-7 from three. That includes spending the last seven minutes of the half on the bench resting. Gerald has only scored (16) or more three different times this season, with a season-high of (19).

With half two getting ready to commence, Green will either keep blazing or cool off. Should this performance endure, expect the Celtics to earn their must-win Game 4 victory.
