Jaylen Brown: 'I’m really focused on getting us back to the NBA Finals'

The Boston Celtics took on the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center on Sunday night, and they walked out with a 103-92 victory in hand. With Marcus Smart out due to a left hip contusion sustained during the team’s overtime loss to the Heat on Friday, Boston went into Brooklyn without their top offensive facilitator, and it showed. Boston tallied only 17 assists on the night and leaned heavily on their stars, with the Nets forcing Jayson Tatum into 9 turnovers.

While Tatum finished with 29 points on 10-of-19 shooting with 11 rebounds and 4 steals, it was Jaylen Brown who got the Celtics going in the early running.
