Throughout the Celtics’ five games, Boston has put together an impressive run against a group of teams that will most likely appear in the postseason next spring.
With offseason moves changing the face of the lineup, one player in particular has been called upon to reinvent himself game after game: Jaylen Brown. A role that he has not only embraced, but one in which he has excelled since opening night.Brown led the Celtics in the home series by scoring 31 points, grabbing five rebounds and adding six assists in Boston’s win over the Orlando Magic.“I’m just a basketball player. “I will do whatever our team needs,” Brown said, according to the team. “I just take advantage of the opportunities that come my way, make the right reads and get into a rhythm.”Celtics starter Jayson Tatum expressed gratitude for Brown’s unselfish play this season as Boston remains undefeated at home with a 14-0 record and 20-5 overall. “Thank you to him and everyone. We all talk about sacrifice, and it’s not easy,” Tatum said, according to the team. “He finished second in All-NBA last year. I had 27 points or whatever, and I don’t want to say that I’m taking a step back, but on points and things like that, on usage or whatever. Just do all of this so we have a better chance of winning.Tatum continued: “Knowing that we have guys on our team that can help us in situations like that…I think it’s going to pay off in the long run. “Because we’re on a great team and that in the future The last two After being so close for years and failing, we all understand it. We are prepared to do everything possible to overcome this obstacle in June.The Celtics played two-game series against the Magic and Cleveland Cavaliers and in three of the four games, all five starters scored in double figures to help Boston win by sweep.Boston looks to extend its dominance when it travels west to take on the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night.
