Ainge was quick to sing praise of Green though, who is averaging a team-high 17.6 points per game while shooting 43 percent from the floor. “Jeff has been our best player this year and has had a fantastic year,” said Ainge. “Last night, he didn’t have a good game — he got in foul trouble early — but he hit two big shots to seal the victory down the stretch. He has been our most consistent scorer.” CBS Local
