Boston Celtics’ Jaylen Brown is all fired up to face the New York Knicks at the TD Garden game tonight.
This is in spite of the injuries he sustained recently during the Celtics’ November 24 match against the Dallas Mavericks.
Brown was not able to play in three consecutive games because during the Dallas event, he fell hard on the floor, wounding his tailbone.
The 22-year-old shooting guard was unsure whether Celtics head coach Brad Stevens would allow him to play on the floor or instruct him to remain on the bench during tonight’s game.
While he was away recuperating from his soreness, Celtics shooting guard Marcus Smart took his position in the starting lineup.
Smart helped the Boston team gain victories in three successive matches, improving to 13-10.
Yet, Brown exuded enthusiasm to be back on the game. He said that he is open to any agenda which the Celtics coach has laid out for him.
Brown cited that the lower back bruises have certainly troubled him. On Wednesday’s basketball practice, however, the second-year player showed that everything was working out quite well.
Brown shared that the other parts of his back spasm enabled the other bruises and bumps to recover.
Thus, he said that he is quite confident that his health concerns would not materialize anymore as he returns to the Boston Celtics’ home court to help his team win against the New York team.
After practice last Wednesday, Brown has been officially delisted from the injury report. In the previous season, Brown began all of the 70 basketball games that were played in for the Celtics.
Moreover, he also started each of his 19 matches, opening the 2018 to 2019 basketball season.
Brown was among the main contributors to why the Boston team accomplished one victory of the National Basketball Association (NBA) finals during the absence of NBA All-Star players Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving.
After averaging 6.6 points and 2.8 rebounds in 13.5 less minutes being a basketball rookie, he has surged his production to 14.5 points alongside 4.9 rebounds.
Apparently, he is zealous to play again. Brown described his playing style as one with enthusiasm and high energy.
The young 2016 Celtics draft pick acknowledged that he may not be the optimum player in the Boston team, yet Brown affirmed that he is 100-percent up for the challenge of winning.
All it takes it to play with the correct strategies and to possess the correct way of thinking, he said.
