FORMER CELTICS

5. Jeff Green played 38 minutes in the Grizzlies overtime win over the Heat last night and finished with 16 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Tony Allen played 36 minutes off the bench and finished with 6 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists.

BEN SIMMONS UPDATE

6. After a long layoff, LSU was back in action last night against Wake Forest. This was their fourth game against a quality opponent. They had lost the first three, but were likely confident heading into this one given the fact it was at home, where they were 7-0 on the season. However, LSU ultimately squandered a late lead and lost 77-71. Simmons played 37 minutes and finished with 21 points, 12 rebounds, 2 assists, 5 turnovers, 2 blocks, 1 steal and 4 fouls.
