Jaylen Brown on Sunday night continued with his impressive form as he played a crucial role in Boston Celtics’ blowout win over the Cavs at the TD Garden.
Brown was unfortunate on Friday night after his 44 points couldn’t help his side secure a win over Philadelphia 76ers but his 33 points counted very much on Sunday night.
The player netted 33 points as Boston emerged 141-103 winners over Cavaliers and in the process became the first NBA player to score such number of points in less than 20 minutes.
Jaylen Brown hit 13 of his 21 shot attempts, including a 3-of-4 mark from beyond the 3-point line.
