Brown posted 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), nine rebounds and one assist across 20 minutes in Wednesday's 117-104 Game 1 blow out loss to Cleveland.

The rookie has turned things around during these extended playoffs. Brown averaged only 2.7 points and 1.8 rebounds (and one DNP) from 10 minutes per game during the first nine matches of the post season. But for the past two games, Brown's averaged 9.5 points, 6.0 boards and 20 minutes of run. These are valuable minutes for the youngster, as he learns to adjust to the added physicality of playoff basketball. Brown will look to continue his productive bench play Friday night during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
