Green will be a restricted free agent in the offseason and was an All-American at Michigan State.

Some nights, a player can just get hot. They just got that invincible feeling, and it seems like anything they throw up is going to go in.

But he didn't feel like he just got hot, and he didn't really feel like he was totally...
