Despite those losses, however, the Celtics still hold a 2-0 advantage in their first-round Eastern Conference playoffs series against the Milwaukee Bucks. "Just coming into the draft, that was one of the biggest things people nitpicked me on, so that was one of the things I wanted to get better at". Along with a supporting cast featuring Eric Bledsoe, Jabari Parker, and Khris Middleton.

"I put a lot of time in this summer and over the course of the year just improving, offensively", Brown said.

"Ultimately, we just want to win games".

"I think he really appreciated the opportunity to compete on this stage and at this level". We're as confident as ever.

The third overall pick of the 2016 National Basketball Association draft, out of the University of California, Brown led the Celtics, scoring a playoff career high of 30 points, helping the Celtics ice the game in the second half.

Terry Rozier chipped in with 21 points and eight assists.


Stevens' men ran out 120-106 winners with Jaylen Brown scoring 30 points, making him the youngest player in Celts history to achieve that in a playoff game. Tony Rozier dropped 23 points in both games.

"I don't know the medical diagnosis of what's next", Stevens said. "St. Vincent Sports Performance is where he'll be and who he's working with".

Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens does not only have tricks - he's also got jokes.

All I am saying is that I was wrong about the Celtics, I underestimated them.

And that's assuming Milwaukee wins at least one of the next two games at home.

The series may not be over yet, Milwaukee can still come back but right now this Celtics team is showing that no matter who is out, they are going to play hard and are willing to still go out there and win.
