Brown had 23 points (8-11 Fg, 3-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 28 minutes during Saturday's 133-77 victory over the Bulls. Brown topped his season-high 21 points from Thursday, dropping 23 points on 8-of-11 shooting Saturday. Brown has returned from injury and looked great despite coming off the bench. Keep in mind he has come up against the Knicks and the Bulls and so production is somewhat magnified. The Celtics will face the Pelicans on Monday in what should be a much closer game.
Brown totaled 21 points (7-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-9 FT), three rebounds, and two assists in 25 minutes during Thursday's 128-100 victory over the Knicks. Brown played 25 minutes off the bench Thursday, making his return after three games on the sidelines. Against the porous Knicks defense, Brown was able to get to the basket with ease, dropping a season-high 21 points. Brown may remain on the bench for the time being but that does give him added responsibility, running with the second unit. No matter his role, Brown remains a borderline standard league option who really offers upside in scoring only.
Brown will come off the bench Thursday against the Knicks, Scott Souza of The Providence Journal reports. Brown won't face a minutes restriction in his first game back after missing the last three contests due to a back injury. That said, the Celtics will stick with Marcus Smart as their starting shooting guard thanks to his performance in Brown's absence. Through 19 games this season, Brown is averaging 11.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 28.1 minutes.
Brown (back) is not on the injury report ahead of Thursday's contest against the Knicks, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports. As expected, Brown will take the floor Thursday after missing three straight games due to a bruised back. It remains unclear if he will re-join the starting five, or if Marcus Smart has supplanted Brown as the Celtics' starting shooting guard. More word on that front may arrive closer to tipoff.
Brown (back) said he plans to play in Thursday's game against the Knicks, Jay King of The Athletic reports. Just moments after head coach Brad Stevens said that Brown would be returning to practice, the swingman says himself that he is feeling like he is ready to play again. Barring any setbacks over the next two days of practice, look for Brown to be back in the Celtics' lineup against the Knicks on Thursday.
