Posted By WEEI On March 27, 2013 @ 10:19 pm In General | 7 Comments
Jeff Green  capped a furious 21-6 run over the final eight minutes with a layup at the buzzer to allow the Celtics  to sneak out of Cleveland with a 93-92 victory over the Cavaliers . Green split the Cavs defense and hit a layup as the buzzer sounded to permit the Celtics to snap a five-game losing streak.
Green, despite shooting 7-of-18, scored 21 points with seven rebounds and five assists. Paul Pierce  added a well-rounded 19 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists, though he committed seven turnovers. Brandon Bass , in the lineup with both Kevin Garnett  and Courtney Lee  still sidelined, poured in 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting with five rebounds.
The Cavs had six players in double figures, but none with more than 16. Cleveland had just one bucket after taking an 88-78 lead at the 5:49 mark of the fourth quarter.
