“They’ve been together for a number of years,” Green said of the Celtics. “They’ve already won a championship, they’ve already have a system, they already have their chemistry and that bond on that team.

“It was tough to go into that situation.”

“It was tough to gather all that information so fast and try to gather the concepts of what they are trying to do,” Green said.

“When things get done, they get done.”
