It might as well have been the NBA Finals as far as star Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown was concerned in the Celtics’ 134-93 drubbing of the Charlotte Hornets in their return to action in a TD Garden preseason debut.
The Georgia native was showing no mercy in his return to play, dropping a total of 24 points to lead all players in the exhibition tilt in scoring, along with another 5 rebounds, and an assist to counterbalance his 4 personal fouls and as many turnovers. Brown shot a sizzling 8-of-11 from the floor overall, an excellent 3-of-5 from beyond the arc, and a solid 5-of-7 from the charity stripe on Sunday afternoon.
