Commandeering a Comeback
Date: June 2, 2022
The Celtics were in a tough spot late in Game 1 of the 2022 NBA Finals, trailing by 12 points at the end of the third quarter. Enter Jaylen Brown. The energetic forward scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting and passed out five assists, rallying the team to a 40-point outburst in the fourth quarter. At the final whistle, the Celtics celebrated a 120-108 comeback victory over the Golden State Warriors. Brown finished the game with 24 points, a team-high seven rebounds, two steals and this block against Kevon Looney in the first quarter.
