Jeff Green is still getting used to life at the Los Angeles Clippers after his trade deadline move from the Memphis Grizzlies. 

The forward has played ten games for the franchise - starting six - and has averaged 11.2 points and 4.2 rebounds per 27.7 minutes of action. 

The Clippers look likely to hold homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs, having amassed a record of 44-22 that sees them sit fourth in the Western Conference.

With Blake Griffin's return imminent, coach Doc Rivers is looking forward as the business end of the season approaches, and he is looking for his players to produce a consistent level of performance. 

Green has struggled for consistency throughout his career and that has not changed since his move to the Staples Center. 

During a win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, he went zero of seven from the field, then followed it up with six of nine shooting in a loss to the Atlanta Hawks. 

His fluctuating levels of performance have been a frustration for a number of coaches during the forward's career, and Rivers has called for Green to improve that aspect of his game.

But the 2008 ring-winning coach is confident the 29-year-old can do exactly that. As per the LA Times, he said: "[He's] Just up and down. We'd love for him to be more consistent. He will be. I'm confident in that. It's not like we eased him in. We grabbed him and threw him in."
