Jaylen Brown is having a great year this season. The Boston Celtic combo guard has been more explosive than ever while shooting elite numbers.
On Sunday night, the Celtics hosted Nikola Vucevic and the Magic at the TD Garden. Due to Brown’s incredible 34-point performance, Boston managed to grab a comfortable 112-96 win over Orlando. Out of the 23 three-pointers shot by the team, JB had 10 of them.
On his way to scoring a game-high 34 points, Brown knocked down a career-high 10-three pointers. It was definitely a great shooting game for the 6-foot-6 guard, who shot an impressive 55.6% from beyond the arc.
He was definitely happy with his performance as he gave himself high praise. He took to Twitter and compared himself to Warriors’ future Hall-Of-Famer Stephen Curry. JB tweeted:
“Felt like Stephen Curry today”

Jaylen Brown hilariously reveals that he didn’t know about Boston Celtics’ 3-point record
Despite having such a great three-point shooting game, Brown didn’t manage to break the Celtics’ single-game record for three-pointers made. That record is still intact with his teammate Marcus Smart, with 11 made three-pointers.
Jaylen hilariously revealed that he didn’t know about the record and had lost count. Had he known about it, he would’ve definitely gone all in to beat it. Brown disclosed:
“I wish someone would’ve told me that. I would’ve fired up at least five or six more to make sure I beat Marcus.”
Jaylen Brown jokes that he would have “fired up 5 or 6 more” 3-pointers if he knew he was only one shy of breaking Marcus Smart’s single-game franchise record.

No doubt the team is happy with their win. Boston snapped their three-game losing streak with the victory. The 24-year-old All-Star opened up about his feelings after the win:
“It feels good to win and have a good shooting night of course. I like how we played today. I thought we had some good ball movement it was just contagious and we just gotta find a way to maintain that.”
“As a leader, I’ve challenged myself. All of us really, Kemba, JT (Tatum), Smart. Guys who’ve been here, all challenged ourselves to be better and more out of this group and that’s what we’re focused on. This game is over with, now we gotta focus on Memphis. Let’s try and keep it going.”
The Celtics surprisingly find themselves at the 6th spot in their conference with a 21-21 record. The team will focus on their 4-game road-trip to find themselves in a better position on the standings.
