Green scored a total of 29 points for the Philadelphia 76ers, earning their team a 137-134 OT victory against the Miami Heat. The 33-year-old was apparently called out by a fan for shooting low, after which he went on to shoot a career-high.

“He just has ultimate confidence,” said head coach Doc Rivers while speaking about Green. He shot 21 three-points, making nine of them. As per Rivers, "19 of them were great shots". Green also added 10 rebounds and 6 assists to his stat line, shooting just one more field goal.
Fans reacted to the career-high, most speaking of how he took the heckler's words to hear. As he went 0-of-9 against the Hawks, a fan called him out. "I have 3 rings," Green said in response. Some fans were not impressed with Green's career-high, pointing out the forward's inconsistency. "Don't matter he only has 1 real ring," wrote one user, responding to Green speaking of his NBA titles.
