Jaylen Brown on his partnership with Jayson Tatum: “it’s like fire and ice”

Jaylen Brown on his partnership with Jayson Tatum: “it’s like fire and ice”

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via We might have a new nickname for the Celtics’ dynamic duo. With the Celtics up 16 and looking for more to close the third quarter against the Nuggets, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum tried to shut the door on the West’s #2 team. Off a steal, Tatum dished to the trailing Brown on the fast break for a thunderous jam in transition. On the next play, Brown contested a Jerami Grant three-pointer. The rebound found Tatum for the quarter’s final possession and he hit a side step three at the buzzer. Photo by Maddie Meyer/ After being...

Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum lead run in late third to top Nuggets 108-95

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports Brown and Tatum combine for 47 points to continue their recent scoring surge and a barrage of Celtics blocks nullified Denver’s size advantage in a 32-19 3Q victory. The Nuggets had to know the game slipped from their hands when Nikola Jokic needed to awkwardly flip a pass over the defense to the perimeter while trying to isolate Enes Kanter. Brad Stevens has trusted Kanter in since his return for offensive bursts, like the trio of assists he dished against Denver. Within two minutes, Brown hit a pair of free throws and flew through a crowd in...

Is Jaylen Brown an All-Star?

Is Jaylen Brown an All-Star?

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports Jaylen Brown has quietly become one of the best 10 players in the East for the first quarter of the season. Is he ready to make an All-Star team? Jaylen Brown looks like an entirely different basketball player to start his fourth NBA season. From the hair to the improved handles, he’s almost unrecognizable from who he was last year, and he’s completely defied everything I thought I knew about player growth. Typically, I’d expect a player like Jaylen to add one tool to their arsenal over the summer, maybe two. Generally, these are things that build...

Who is the Celtics MVP so far? (discussion topic)

Photo by Barry Chin/The Boston Globe via Is it Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, or other? As I mentioned in another post, we’re 20 games into the season so this is as good a time as any to take stock in where we are. Preseason expectations give way to a large enough sample size to make an early season assessment. Not that it matters in the grand scheme of things, but I’m curious to see who you think is the early season MVP of this team. Is it Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, or someone else like say Marcus Smart? The case for Kemba is pretty straightforward. He’s the leading...

VIDEO: Kelly Olynyk considers Jaylen Brown an elite NBA player

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports Kelly Olynyk returns and sees a different Jaylen Brown from the young rookie he played with at the end of his Celtics tenure. The Celtics shook off another rough start with Marcus Smart’s intensity missing due to an illness and oblique injury. Brad Stevens shook up lineups into the second, when he found a wing-heavy group with Semi Ojeleye he rolled with for over 20 minutes as Kemba Walker scored 29 and flipped the game upside down with his playmaking in the second quarter. Boston won 112-93 and leapt over the Heat to second place in the east. Video...

Jaylen Brown’s improvement a result of arduous two-a-days in the summer

Jaylen Brown’s stark improvement this season comes at a massive time, one in which he would have been prompted to validate the multi-year extension of his rookie contract he received earlier in the summer. Brown had just finished a rollercoaster 2018-19 season with the Boston Celtics, finding himself in and out of the starting lineup.

Jaylen Brown the Celtics ‘X-factor’ according to Kemba Walker

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ With opposing defenses focusing on Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum, they haven’t had much of an answer for Jaylen Brown. With the ball at the top of the arc and in the hands of two priemere one-on-one scorers in Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum, it’s a clear advantage for the Boston Celtics. So much so that whenever a pick comes to give Walker or Tatum an even more favorable matchup, opposing defenses recently are blitzing the ball carrier to force a 2-on-1 situation and get the ball out of their hands. However, what the opposition isn’t accounting for when they...

Balanced scoring and defense for the win: 8 Takeaways from Celtics/Heat

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum scored 78 of Boston’s 112 points 1. As it has been for many years now, whether you call it “next man up” or “Hospital Celtics”, Boston always seems to bring their best when they are down a couple of key players. With Gordon Hayward recovering from a fractured hand and Marcus Smart out due to being sick (but also getting some time off his feet with a number of other bumps and bruises), the Celtics stepped up and got a win over a good opponent. Part of that was balanced scoring from their trio of stars...
