Boston Celtics Jeff Green blocks shot, jumps over D.J. Augustin (Video)


Look up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s….Jeff Green?

The Boston Celtics forward decided to put on a small show during the Celtics most recent game against the Toronto Raptors, which featured Green flying over point guard D.J. Augustin.

Early in the second quarter with the Raptors nursing a three point lead, Green turned the ball over in the Celtics’ key resulting in a fast break opportunity for the Raptors.

After the turnover, the ball bounced into the hands of Raptors point guard D.J. Augustin who thought he’d have a reality easy lay-up on the other end, but he was mistaken.

Green, wanting to find retribution for his turnover moments later thundered down the court where he leaped to block the shot of Augustin who was just steps ahead of him. But not only did he swat the shot of Augustin, he also jumped over him (literally) while blocking the shot, sending it out of bounds.

I guess if Jeff Green ever wants to enter the Dunk Contest, he knows who to call as a prop.
