VIDEO: Jeff Green dunks on Al Jefferson in Celtics game against Jazz

BOSTON - Jeff Green needed a big moment to get his season going. He provided it late in the fourth quarter of the Boston Celtics' home game against the Utah Jazz.

Green took a pass on the left wing and drove to the hoop to provide a posterizing dunk over former Celtic and current Jazz big man Al Jefferson, a throw down that sent the TD Garden crowd into a frenzy.

Entering the game, Green was averaging 7.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in seven games and was facing heavy criticism about his play after signing a three-year deal worth $36 million in the offseason. Green, who was traded to the Celtics in the deal that sent Kendrick Perkins to the Oklahoma City Thunder, has career averages of 13.7 points and 5.5 rebounds while shooting at a career 44.4 percent rate.
