Celtics’ Jaylen Brown admits he was ‘fed up’ last season

Jaylen Brown faced a massive test of his faith last season when a Boston Celtics rollercoaster campaign threatened to turn his career from up-and-coming starter to role-playing contributor.

The Garden Report: Is Gordon Hayward going to be ok for Celtics?

The Garden Report: Is Gordon Hayward going to be ok for Celtics?

Hayward is 9-for-30 over his last two games as Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker sat. Is his offensive inconsistency a concern? The Garden Report staff is not ready to ship Gordon Hayward out of town after a pair of poor performances. The production may not meet the price tag. Trags loves his settling effect as a secondary ball handler, while Josue Pavon points out the return will not be great for a massive outgoing salary with a foot concern. The crew also broke down another disappointing loss to the Suns and the flurry of record performances against Boston’s defense. With all this...

Marcus Smart’s record-breaking night eases pain of another loss

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ Smart took a game high 25 shots in this one as he fought tooth and nail to keep the score close down the stretch. Shorthanded and devoid of confidence, the Boston Celtics went into last night’s game needing performances from Jayson Tatum and Gordon Hayward. Unfortunately, neither were able to provide the spark the team required against a young Phoenix team that always seems to perform against them. With both Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown sitting the game out due to injury, and Tatum and Hayward struggling, the Celtics looked short of firepower from the get go....

Unacceptable and unsustainable: 1 Takeaway from Celtics/Suns

Unacceptable and unsustainable: 1 Takeaway from Celtics/Suns

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ Boston will never get where they want by relying on crazy comebacks 1. Unacceptable. There really isn’t any other way to put it. You can use the excuse that Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown were out. You can use the schedule as an excuse if you would like that. None of that really flies though. The reality is that losing to the Phoenix Suns at home, in a game where you feel behind big once again, is unacceptable. Boston’s defense wasn’t good for the vast majority of the night. Devin Booker went off, as per usual. Part of the reason why? It was way too easy...

Jaylen Brown out with right thumb sprain for Celtics against Suns

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Brown sprained his thumb on Wednesday against Detroit and missed Thursday’s loss to Milwaukee. Celtics look to avoid three straight Ls without him against Phoenix tonight. The Celtics finally scanned Jaylen Brown’s right thumb after he sprained it in a collision with Markieff Morris against the Pistons on Wednesday. The staff didn’t have time to fully assess the injury that night as the C’s quickly took off for Milwaukee to face the Bucks on Thursday. That scan showed no tear, and Brown is feeling better, per Brad Stevens. He’ll miss...

Celtics look to shake off complacency after getting roughed up by Pistons

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Jaylen Brown thinks the Celtics are too comfortable. Brad Stevens points to the the transition defense. I can tell you at the beginning of almost any game if the Celtics’ heads are in it or not. Tonight, they started the game without pressuring the ball, which is a dead giveaway that they weren’t locked in. Jaylen Brown says the Celtics got comfortable with winning. “We need to get back to being the seeker, not the seeked.”— Tom Westerholm (@Tom_NBA) January 16, 2020 Brown shot an efficient 10-16 from the floor, but was 0-5 from the free...

The Garden Report: Are the Celtics deep enough to sit Jayson Tatum?

“They came out flat to start ... it should be guys wanting to step up.” Brad Stevens searched between Romeo Langford, Semi Ojeleye and Javonte Green to fill the third gap on the wing left by a load management night for Jayson Tatum. The three only managed to unload four shots for eight points, far from the scoring volume Tatum usually provides. The Celtics heavily rely on Tatum, Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker for the brunt of their scoring. It’s no surprise why they’re among the all-star candidates. None of its bench players are, and while Enes Kanter is on a tear...
