Jaylen Brown led the Celtics on Wednesday with 31 points (11-of-30 FG, 4-of-13 3PT) alongside 16 rebounds, two assists and two steals.
Brown was carrying the Celtics’ offensively through the first half as both Jayson Tatum and Kemba Walker could barely hit a shot. The young forward has shown up in every game of this series, proving he is fully capable of succeeding against playoff defense. While his shooting efficiency doesn’t look pretty, he clearly has a handle on hitting the elusive mid-range shot in crunch time. Something to note about Brown, though he was a mediocre free throw shooter in the regular season he has been shooting over 90% from the line in this series.
