In an attempt to create some more offense, the Boston Celtics are going back to a strategy they have employed in parts of their first two playoffs series so far this postseason; starting Gerald Green in place of Amir Johnson. 

The decision was announced a short time ago, ahead of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Green was inserted into the starting lineup in Boston’s first round series against the Chicago Bull, after the C’s went down 0-2 in the series. He also got two starts in the team’s second round, seven game series against the Washington Wizards.

With Green in the C’s have more flexibility offensively and an extra scoring threat on the floor.

This postseason, Green has appeared in 10 games, making six starts. He has averaged 7.2 points per game in the playoffs, which is a full point better than his regular season average.

While he didn’t start Wednesday’s series opener, the 31-year-old did see some action late. In 14 minutes, he scored 11 points off the bench.

We’ll see if Green’s insertion into the starting lineup can make a difference against Cleveland when the two team square off in Game 2 at 8:30 PM EST.
