The Boston Celtics hosted Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday night, however they unfortunately gave the game away, coming out on the short end of a 109-103 final score.
Between the turnovers and playing carelessly at times, Boston still could’ve won this game- even with a terrible performance from Jayson Tatum who only scored 10 points.
Jaylen Brown makes NBA history, despite losing in Game 3
Despite this kind of loss, I like to find the bright side of things. And although this game hurts, there are a few positive takeaways from it. The main takeaway I want to get into, however, is Jaylen Brown.
Jaylen had a career night. He scored 40 points on 14-20 shooting from the field and going 3-9 from behind the arc. In doing so, Brown shot 11-11 on all of his 2-point field goals, becoming the first player to do so in a playoff game while scoring 40 points.
This type of game has been building up for Jaylen. Hopefully he can build off of this and get a complete team production in return for next game.
The Celtics will host Game 4 on Monday night at the Boston TD Garden at 8:30PM.
