Jeff Green Has a Shooter's Touch

BOSTON, MA - DECEMBER 28: Jeff Green #8, Vitor Faverani #38 and Kelly Olynyk #41 of the Boston Celtics watch the ball bounce around the rim before falling into the basket against the Cleveland Cavaliers on December 28, 2013 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green came into Saturday shooting 44.8 percent from the field, per Basketball Reference. If he got the kind of shooter's bounce he got on Saturday against the Cleveland Cavaliers every day, he'd be shooting approximately 136 percent.

Yes, that was the ultra-rare six-bounce runner. The Cavs were defending Green well, but sometimes the ball has a mind of its own.
