Jaylen Brown Got Super Aggressive In His Return For Celtics

BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics won all three games that Jaylen Brown missed as the third-year guard recovered from a lower back injury.

On Thursday night, Brown joined in on the fun, returning to action with a 21-point outburst in Boston’s 128-100 victory over the New York Knicks.

Just 40 seconds after checking in, Brown took a feed in the left corner and plowed his way along the baseline, driving right at Knicks center Enes Kanter.

He completed the three-point play to much applause from the TD Garden crowd, a sure sign that the Jaylen Brown that Boston fans have come to know over the last three seasons is back at full speed.

Brown’s output was impressive not only for a player coming back after a two-week layoff, but for someone adjusting to life in a new role.

That hasn’t been the case during their four-game win streak, and players up and down the roster, whether in the starting five or coming off the bench, have played with a renewed sense of energy over the last two weeks.
