This has to be one of the best celebration pics ever. Beating the Cavs isn’t that big of a deal for the Celtics. Jeff Green’s layup wasn’t that spectacular. Hugging the man that saved your life a year earlier so you can be on the court making game winning shots is amazing.
“Just a year ago and a couple months, I was under that bright light with him working on me,” said the forward, who scored 21 points and grabbed seven rebounds.
“It’s a blessing to be here.”
Then, a moment later, Green smiled and said, “That was for him.”
