Called the most professional player on the team by coach Vinny Del Negro, Willie Green has started at shooting guard in place of Chauncey Billups. With the emergence of Jamal Crawford though, Green has played limited minutes this season, yet his impact is understated.
Green is averaging six points per night on 43 percent shooting from the field, while shooting 39 percent from behind-the-arc this season. Although he only averages 18 minutes per game, Green's impact is tremendous on both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor.
Green starts games against the likes of Kobe Bryant, Klay Thompson and some of the best shooters in the league. His quickness and agility on the defensive end limits easy drives to the basket, allowing the Clippers defense to attack corner shooters to limit opponents three-point shooting.
Like Caron Butler, Willie Green lives from the 3-point line. On average, 50 percent of Willie Green's shots are worth three points. Over the last two games, Green is only shooting 10 percent (1 for 10), from his favorite spot on the floor.
The starting shooting guard makes the most out of his minutes, and is the glue that keeps the Clippers together on the road to one of the best records in the NBA.
