Jaylen Brown scored a team-high 26 points (11-of-17 FGs, 3-of-5 FTs) to go along with seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, one blocked shot and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes Saturday vs. the Heat.
Brown, who reportedly got into a postgame shouting match with Marcus Smart after Boston’s Game 2 loss, stepped up in a big way Saturday night. The 17 field goal attempts are the most that he’s had in a game this series, and the 64.7 field goal percentage is Brown’s best this postseason. The Celtics will need a similarly assertive Brown in Wednesday’s Game 4 as they look to even up the series. Smart also played well, tallying 20 points (5-of-10 FGs, 10-of-10 FTs), four rebounds and six assists in 36 minutes. Sep 19 11:20 pm (EST)
