Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum showed that lack of experience was not an issue in an easy 108-83 Game 1 victory against the Cavs on Sunday.
Brown scored 23 points with eight rebounds, while Tatum added 16 points with six rebounds and two steals. Tatum played 37 minutes, which led all players in the game and he had a game-high plus-27 plus-minus as well. Brown was tremendous in his 28 minutes as he was seemingly drilling every shot he took. He shot 9-of-16 in the game and was aggressive on the offensive end all game by going at whatever defender the Cavs had on him. The duo combined shot 15-of-27 from the field and 5-of-10 from the three, so it was an efficient game for the young core of the Celtics.
