May 6, 2013; San Antonio, TX, USA; San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green (4) reacts after a shot against the Golden State Warriors during the first half in game one of the second round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs at the AT
Icy-Hot. Those of you on all social networks no exactly why Danny Green has dubbed such a name. Green has truly been icy during the season as we have yet to see him produce on the offensive end.
In round one, I too was shaking my head and wondering, when will he be productive on the offensive end, what is his problem.
He did not show up. Though San Antonio didn’t need his help on the offensive end, still, his numbers needed to improve. His performance in game one in the second round surely will have everyone forget the way he played during the sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers.
If you were waiting for me to input his numbers in that series, go look it up, trust me, nothing good to post.
Greens stat-line should draw a smile to faces of Spurs fans. He finished with 22 points, 3 steals and hit 6-of-9 from the three point line.
Question though is will this spark him to continue to produce at this high level. This is the Danny Green that I like out there on the floor. Let the game come to you, do not force shots.
What is important is that Green now feels a “part” of this team. He wasn’t a one-sided player. He hit big shots, and for San Antonio, they never had a doubt that he would come out of his slump.
On this night, Green took the second part of his nickname, icy-hot. All that is left for him to do, build on this performance.
