Jaylen Brown:

    The Celtics blew their second straight second-half lead in a 106-101 loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday night as Boston fell behind 0-2 in the Eastern Conference Finals. And things reportedly blew up in the Celtics locker room. Multiple reporters described a heap of distressing noises pouring out of Boston’s locker room after the loss, including what sounded like chairs being thrown, head coach Brad Stevens pleading with his team to calm down and a shirtless Marcus Smart storming out and huffing, “Y’all on some bulls–t.” The Athletic reported that there was a heated confrontation between Smart and Brown after Smart said too much of the blame was falling on him. “They will move past this and focus on the task,” a source told the website. Once in front of the media, those who did speak — Stevens, Kemba Walker, Brown and Jayson Tatum — downplayed the entire situation....

    BOSTON (CBS) — After the Celtics lost Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals on Thursday night, reporters heard Marcus Smart yelling inside the Celtics’ locker room. A new report from The Athletic details a lot more of what was taking place behind closed doors. Shams Charania got the inside scoop, and he reported that Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown had a “heated confrontation,” and the two players “needed to be separated by teammates.” Charania cited multiple sources for his report, which noted that Smart had engaged in some verbal outbursts at assistant coaches during the game. “Smart stormed into the Celtics postgame locker room saying that other players needed to be held accountable and not simply point the finger toward him when things are going wrong,” Charania reported. “As Smart continued and his voice grew louder, sources said Brown snapped back and shouted that Celtics players must stay together...
    Getty Images Marcus Smart prior to the start of Game 2 against the Miami Heat Marcus Smart was the only Celtics player reporters physically witnessed enraged following the altercation that occurred between teammates after Thursday’s 106-101 Game 2 loss against the Miami Heat. Smart was seen screaming expletives, storming out of the locker room, and was reluctant to speak to the media following the team’s dust-up. Although he wasn’t the only Celtics player who declined to go on camera, Smart’s tirade resonated with the media as news of the team’s locker room blowout broke moments before head coach Brad Stevens combed through questioning. Without the proper context of what triggered the huge spat between players, it’s difficult to decipher the underlying issue. Jaylen Brown, who drained 2-of-3 from behind the arc inside the final minute of the fourth quarter and nearly forced Game 2 into overtime, chalked up...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Jaylen Brown has been one of the most outspoken players in the NBA as the league fights for social equality. He uses his words wisely and passionately, and on Wednesday, suggested that society change its vocabulary when it comes to fighting for change. For Brown, the word “reform” isn’t strong enough and doesn’t convey the message he and others are trying to get across. “Reform, we hear it a lot and we’ve been saying that for a long time. Years,” the Celtics guard said Wednesday. “If I wanted to reform my house I might upgrade my kitchen, I might change my garage, I might even do something outside. But the house is still the same. So I think we need to start using different words other than reform, because it’s not the right energy that we are trying to convey. “I think that ‘recreate’ and ‘dismantle’ and...
    Wednesday night’s Game 6 thriller between the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors featured a number of wild moments, as Toronto forced a Game 7 in double overtime, 125-122. But it also featured its share of bad blood. Late in the fourth quarter, Jayson Tatum had the ball with the score tied at 98-98. He made an errant pass that wasn’t close to any of his teammates, and ended up sailing out of bounds near the Raptors bench. But on a closer look, Raptors coach Nick Nurse was standing right next the court, crouched as if in a defensive position. Which led some to speculate if he was doing it on purpose to bait Tatum into throwing the errant pass. Tatum’s teammate, Jaylen Brown, called Nurse out after the game. “Grown men should be able to control themselves, especially coaching staff,” Brown said. “So, let’s continue to do what we...

    BOSTON (CBS) — It certainly seemed like Raptors head coach Nick Nurse, who was essentially standing on the court, caused Celtics forward Jayson Tatum to make a costly turnover at the end of regulation in Game 6. Tatum wouldn’t blame Nurse after the game, but one of his teammates had no problem calling out the NBA’s Coach of the Year. The play came in the final minute of regulation of Wednesday night’s double overtime thriller. With the score knotted at 98-98, Tatum drove to the basket and kicked the ball to Daniel Theis in the corner. The only issue was he didn’t throw it to Theis, but to Nurse, who was standing in the corner of the court with one foot on the line. Nurse jumped out of the way of Tatum’s pass, and the Raptors took over. A lot happened after that play, but Toronto went on to win...

    Jaylen Brown was left fuming after OG Anunoby’s buzzer-beater snatched a dramatic 104-103 win for the Toronto Raptors to reduce the Boston Celtics’ series lead to 2-1. NBA PLAYOFFS: Bracket | Schedule | Explaining the bubble The Celtics looked set to be on the brink of the Eastern Conference finals when a Daniel Theis dunk with 0.5 seconds to play put them two points up on Thursday. Yet there was one final twist, as a miscommunication between Jayson Tatum and Brown gave Anunoby the opportunity to win Game 3 and he grasped it to give the defending champions a lifeline. Celtics guard Brown was furious over such a costly late lapse, with Brown left free for a decisive three-pointer. “That was just a f—ing disgrace at the end of the game. That was just terrible,” Brown said. “No way we should have lost that game. I take responsibility for that. Not just that...
    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) —  Jaylen Brown is a pretty cool customer. But boy was he mad after Boston’s heartbreaking Game 3 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night. Brown took full responsibility for OG Anunoby draining a buzzer beating three off an inbound, handing the Celtics a 104-103 defeat. It looked like Brown was supposed to be guarding Anunoby, but got caught defending Marc Gasol on the play, leaving Anunoby wide open to take Kyle Lowry’s incredible inbound from the other side of the court. Anunoby got the shot off with just 0.5 on the clock, drained it, and gave Toronto some life in the series. The Boston defense looked pretty disjointed on the play, but Brown shouldered all the blame. “Just a miscommunication. That’s all that really is. They made a remarkable play at the end. OG snuck along the baseline and we just...

Tatum has a slight edge in height and length on Brown and several of his makes were fall-aways or step-backs that started from elbow post-ups. Brown, on the other hand, seemed determined to leverage any advantage in strength he could muster and repeatedly drove right into the paint. Tatum is an All-Star and borderline All-NBA player and Brown is at least a tier below that in terms of current production,...

That was terrible. It was a bad list, bad choice, they didn’t give players a chance to voice their opinion. They just gave us a list to pick from. So that was bad, that’s terrible.” — Rich Hofmann (@rich_hofmann) July 6, 2020 Didn’t have enough space to fit in one tweet, but this was part of his response to a question of how players can use...

    Some NBA players have chosen to participate in the nationwide protests fighting for justice after the death of George Floyd, who was killed after a Minneapolis police officer had his knee on Floyd’s neck as he screamed for help.
