Jaylen Brown hits ten 3-pointers as the Boston Celtics cruise to 112 to 96 win over the Orlando Magic
The Orlando Magic had a total of eleven 3-pointers. Jaylen Brown finished with just one less all on his own and the Celtics after a poor first quarter handled business the rest of the way to get back to .500. It was a rare Sunday matinee win for Boston this season.
Jaylen led the way with 34 points while his partner in Jay's, Tatum added 23 of his own (5 of 8 on 3pt attempts). Daniel Theis had a double double with 13 and 11, as Boston played this game without Tristan Thompson, who is still out due to COVID Health & Safety protocals.
The Orlando Magic were led once again by their All-Star center Nikola Vucevic. Vuc finished with 22 points and 13 rebounds. One player who the Celtics are reportedly pursuing is Aaron Gordon. He struggled with his shot, but was active. The Magic aren't very good and played today without Markelle Fultz, Cole Anthony, Jonathan Isaac,Terrence Ross and Mo Bamba, but at this point a win is a win.
If Jaylen hits another 3 to tie Marcus' team record or two of them to surpass it, Smart in the next week is totally going to try and pull a Bird and get that record back (like when the Legend went for 6o a wk after McHale had 56).
