“I did a s**t job taking care of the basketball tonight”

Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown has had a night in his career and a night he wants to forget. That may sound like a paradox, but that’s exactly what happened to the member of the 2021 All-Star and 2016-17 All-Rookie teams on Saturday during Game 3 of the Domain Conference Finals. Winter.

Brown took home his career-high 40 points in the playoffs, coming through a perfect 11/11 from within the arc, but still endured a night of horror as the Boston Celtics lost 103-109 at TD Garden.

Despite the loss, Jaylen Brown became the first player in the clock-shooting era (since 1954-55) to have a 40-point playoff in the 100% 2-point FG shooter.

The main reason for the disaster of Jaylen Brown and the Boston Celtics was revenue. Boston hit a whopping 24 plays as they struggled to bounce back from a 26-point (20-46) deficit early in the second quarter. Brown was the main culprit for Boston as he hit a career-high in the playoffs of seven wins in the competition. Interestingly, Brown had the worst performance of his career with seven goals in these playoffs in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Alongside Brown, Jayson Tatum (10 points on three-quarters of a penalty shoot-out) had six passes, while the defending Defensive Player of the Year, Marcus Smart, dropped the ball four times. The Miami Heat, which played without star player Jimmy Butler (inflammation of the knee) in the second half, benefited greatly from Boston’s poor handling of the ball as they scored 33 points against the innings. opponent’s move.

The outstanding score is …. 33-9 Miami. In a single game, they won with 6.19 Heat steals which is an NBA record.

Brown, however, is solely responsible for his bad night as far as revenue is concerned. He told the media after the Game 3 loss quite frankly:

“I did the basketball job tonight.”

Jaylen Brown: “I did a terrible job looking after the basketball tonight.”

The Boston Celtics hit the field with a sloppy effort in the first quarter versus the Miami Heat in game 3

Boston Celtics fans had a distinct feeling of deja vu in Game 3. After going through a 14-39 third innings in Game 1, it was decisive to change the game. In that contest, the Celtics conceded 18-39 a quarter-final against the Miami Heat in the 3rd Half. They made just one of six three-pointers and made five returns in the first 12-minute period to start the match.

Things took a turn for the worse for the Celtics as the Heat continued to extend the lead to 62-37 with about 1:49 remaining in the second half. And though Boston managed to bounce back, cutting the deficit to as little as a point (92-93) by the end of the fourth quarter, the iteration ultimately cost the Celtics the game.

Ime Udoka: “You turn it over 24 times and give them 33 points, you dug yourself in a hole. We went back, but it was hard to get through.”
