That's an encouraging sight for C's fans.
Masked Jaylen went on to drop 13 points off the bench in the first half. As for Tatum, he led Team Giannis with 17 points through the first two frames.
The Celtics likely will welcome Brown back into the lineup when they return to action against the Indiana Pacers on Thursday.
