Danny Green helps Spurs down Celtics

After the Spurs' 103-88 win over the Celtics, Danny Green spoke with Kyle Draper about the difference in tonight's game.

"I think both teams got a little tired in the fourth quarter," said Green. "We kind of pushed through in the end. Tonight we hit a couple 3's and opened up the lead for us."

The Spurs put together a 19-6 run in the fourth quarter that sealed the win for San Antonio.

"Once we start hitting shots, it makes it easy to move the ball," said Green.

On a night when Tim Duncan scored only 5 points, the Spurs got big contributions from their complementary players; enough to give them a season sweep of the Celtics.

Green scored 12 points, including three 3-pointers, in more than 34 minutes of action.

Report: Sullinger to miss 'extended time' due to foot surgery


Report: Sullinger to miss 'extended time' due to foot surgery

Former Celtics and current Raptors forward will is expected to miss “extended time” to begin the season due to foot surgery, according to a report from The Vertical. 

Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted Sunday that Sullinger, who signed with Toronto after being let go by Boston this offseason, was set to undergo surgery on Monday. 

Chosen 21st overall by the Celtics in the 2012 draft, Sullener spent four seasons in Boston, where he was repeatedly stalled by injuries. In his career with Boston, Sullinger averaged 11.1 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. 

The C’s made him a qualifying offer at the end of the season when he was a restricted free agent, but renounced the offer and let him become unrestricted. Sullinger then landed in Toronto on a one-year, $6 million deal.
