Both Jeff Green and Courtney Lee spent time with the Celtics. Both were glad to be traded from a lottery team to a championship. And most of all, these two were glad to be reunited on the same team.
Why? Well, besides being pals off the court, Jeff and Lee had great chemistry on the court as well:
Who doesn't want more of that?
These two even got into some post game interview shenanigans:
With the Grizzlies, Lee is averaging 11.6 PPG, which is his most since 2009-10.
On the other hand, Jeff Green was averaging a career high 17.6 PPG. In his first (three) games with the Grizzlies, Green is averaging 16.0 PPG coming off of the bench.
Look for good things to continue in their offensive chemistry the more these two play with each other going forward. After starting Green with Tony Allen on Wednesday, Coach Joerger paired Lee with his old friend on Saturday and it made for a much more comfortable start.
