Danny Green will be sorry to see the Miami Heat leave town.

His Philadelphia 76ers completed a sweep of two home games against Miami in three days. Green followed up his 29-point game Tuesday with 12 points, six rebounds, three assists and a steal in Thursday’s 125–108 victory.

Tony Bradley was scoreless with one assist in two minutes off the bench.

It was quite a week for Green, which started with a forgettable two-point game in Atlanta on a night he dealt with a heckler hilariously. Yes, as the heckler said, he was 0 for 10 on the night. But Green pointed out that he had three rings.

Other than Green’s performances, it’s been a frustrating week for UNC alums between losses and games being postponed.

Cameron Johnson’s Phoenix Suns haven’t played since Monday and aren’t scheduled to play again until next Monday. The Suns had home games Wednesday against Atlanta, Friday against Golden State and Saturday against Indiana all postponed.

Cole Anthony’s Orlando Magic also hasn’t played since Monday. Orlando’s Wednesday game at Boston was postponed and the teams are scheduled to play in Boston on Friday.

Coby White’s Chicago Bulls haven’t played since Sunday, had their game Tuesday against Boston Celtics postponed but play Friday against Justin Jackson’s Oklahoma City Thunder.

Jackson scored a point in five minutes in Wednesday’s 129–99 home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Harrison Barnes had a season-low game score of 6.4 in the Sacramento King’s 132–126 home loss Wednesday to Portland. He had 11 points, six rebounds, three assists and four turnovers in the game.

Wayne Ellington started in the Detroit Pistons’ 110–101 Wednesday loss to Milwaukee but struggled. He had five points in 14 minutes and a 1.6 game score.
