Green on poster dunk: 'It felt great'
Q: What's the feeling to make a play like that?
A: "It felt good. I mean, I just tried to make a play at the rim, and I just got higher than Al. That's about it. It's two points and it kept us a good lead, so it was a good play. Hopefully it'll be on 'SportsCenter.' We'll see."
Q: Are coaches telling you to be aggressive?
A: "No, it was just something that I needed to do myself. I don't think anybody needs to tell me to be aggressive. It's something that I see, something that I need to do."
Q: It's just two points, but it felt good?
A: "It felt great. Yes, it felt great. I mean, I have been playing a little lackadaisical, as far as the effort, before the prior couple games. So, it felt good to get that. It kind of boosts your confidence up and it gets you going a little bit, so it felt good to get that to go down."
What did Kevin Garnett say to you?
A: "I can't tell you. I mean, use your imagination. Think Kevin Garnett, let's just say it was explicit. You know, he said it to me the other day, what I need to be. So, that's basically what he said."
Did you think you earned the post-dunk technical?
A: "I did. I guess you can't look at the guy anymore. But Courtney Lee said he'd pay for it, so we'll see."
