Jaylen Brown netted 21 points in 42 minutes on Friday vs. the Sixers, adding in seven rebounds and three assists as the Celtics took a commanding 3-0 series lead.
Brown, the heart and soul of this Celtics squad, led the team in minutes. His shot was not particularly effective (6-for-16 FG, 1-for-5 3PT) but the Celtics were able to squeak out a win in a rather ugly game from both sides. Jayson Tatum found himself in early foul trouble, so that was a big factor in Brown's high volume on Friday. The Celtics will look to close out the Sixers on Sunday in Orlando.
