Jaylen Brown was positively cooking in Game 2 of the Boston Celtics’ second-round tilt against the Milwaukee Bucks. He scored 25 points alone in the first half and was an efficient 11-18 from the field. After a forgettable Game 1, Brown was the tail that wagged the dog for the Celtics on Tuesday.
At 6’6″ and 220 lbs, Brown is built more like a traditional small forward or wing, especially with his 7’0″ wingspan. That said, he’s got himself a neat little bag of tricks when it comes to breaking down a defender. Just ask Grayson Allen. Late in the first quarter, Jaylen sized up the former Duke Blue Devil, with the action starting almost at the logo.
Six dribbles later Allen was on his rear and Brown pulled up for an easy two points. In case you missed it, check out Jaylen Brown’s ankle-snatching move here:
