Jaylen Brown, the Celtics back against the Bucks until the second round series

BOSTON – He is the other J. The All-Star, but not the MVP candidate. The scorer but not the scorer. When high-profile commercial talk emerged (Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard) it was Jaylen Brown, not Jayson Tatum, who got involved.

Brown is still a Celtic – the second longest-lived Celtic, in fact – and, boy, was Boston happy to have him on Tuesday. Game 2, the Celtics season up for grabs, their best defender, Marcus Smart, on the bench and Brown was out, accumulating 25 points in the first half (30 in total), delivering six assists and collecting five rebounds. He made 11 of his 18 shots, six of his 10 three and kept Celtics killer Jrue Holiday at 19 points out of 7 of 20 in Boston’s 109-86 win.
