In response to wicksandrowe's comment:
In response to a question about how he's playing, Jeff Green says :
"I’m just looking to go out there and try to get my game back," he said.
And how does Green get his game back? "I just haven’t made shots. I think that’s what it all boils down to. My shots haven’t fallen yet. So hopefully they will soon."
That sure instills confidence. A man with a plan - 'I'm not making shots, but I soon hope to." Yeah, that ought to do it.
I hope he pretty soon also gets a rebound or two, an assist or two, a couple of trips to the FT line and runs a lane in transition.
Sounds like he's taken over the "I just...we just" construction Paul Pierce used to death when he was asked hot-seat questions. "I just haven't made shots," like there's no more to it than that, diminishing the obvious shortfall to just a matter of the shots falling.
That is what a third/fourth option, a role-player says.
Here's Ricky Rubio on the same subject:
“I wasn’t making shots,” Rubio said, “but it can’t affect the way I play.”
