Jaylen Brown poured in a team-high 26 points to lead the Celtics to a 117-106 Game 3 win over the Heat on Saturday.
Brown hit 11-of-17 shots from the field and made 3-of-5 of his free throw attempts. He also added seven rebounds, one trey, five assists, three steals and one block for an overall well-rounded performance. Brown was aggressive on both ends of the floor and the Celtics were able to enjoy a comfortable lead for the first three quarters of the game, up until the Heat made a last-ditch run in the fourth quarter. This is a good first step for the Celtics who have now shown that this will not be a cake walk for the Heat but instead could be an intense, hard-fought series that could go the distance of seven games.
