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...

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

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...

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

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

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...

The Jays lead the way with some help from their friends: 10 Takeaways from Celtics/Knicks

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports Tatum and Brown did the scoring, but everyone contributed to the road victory for Boston 1. Jayson Tatum played one of the best all-around games of his career. He scored 30 points, grabbed six rebounds, played good defense with two steals and two blocks, and set a career-high with seven assists. Tatum was a good shooter/scorer from day one in the NBA. His defense has also always been good. The passing is what has really improved since he entered the NBA. Against the Knicks, he made three different types of reads that showcased that improvement. First,...
