During the dying minutes of the Celtics-Hornets clash, Jaylen Brown handed Miles Bridges a nasty poster dunk.

On Monday night, the 3-0 Charlotte Hornets hosted Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics at the Spectrum Center. In an action-packed and close-fought thriller of a match, that saw 28 lead changes and 12 ties, it was the visiting team taking the 140-129 overtime win, handing the Hornets their first loss of the 2021-2022 campaign.

It was Tatum who managed to put up a game-high 41 points, along with 8 assists and 7 rebounds, shadowing LaMelo Ball’s 25-point and 9-assists near double-double night. However, it was Jaylen Brown, who finished the night with a solid 30-point performance, who had the play of the night.

During the dying minutes of an energetic overtime period and Boston leading 132-129, JT passed the ball to Brown on the fastbreak, who then elevated to throw down the emphatic dunk over Miles Bridges.

Usually, we are used to seeing Bridges hand such emphatic dunks, and not be on the receiving end of one. However, it is great to see him lauding JB for this monstrous jam. As it is rightly said – “Game Recognises Game”.
