JAYLEN BROWN. The #3 overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft has been making his presence felt this season. Jaylen Brown’s breakout season has continued and stayed on the rise heading into the new calendar year. He now has his first official accolade at the big stage and has earned Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors.
Over his last three games, Brown has averaged 27 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. He took Christmas Day by storm against the defending champions and then put up a career night in TD Garden against Cleveland. Brown is now averaging nearly 21 points and 7 rebounds per game and, most notably, has become lethal from deep at an eye-popping team-best 40% three-point shooter.
👏 @FCHWPO has received @NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors for the first time in his career!
Brown has continued to help the Celtics be one of the most consistent offensive teams in the league. He has been silencing the doubters and proving why the Celtics were justified in visiting the bank for him. He’s done this with a combination of increased confidence and drastically improving the one complaint scouts had of him at the draft—his jump shot.
