Jaylen Brown dominated in the first half of the Boston Celtics’ Game 2 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, scoring 25 points and providing a sick highlight that even caught the attention of NBA superstar LeBron James.
Brown, who ultimately totaled 30 points in Boston’s 109-86 victory at TD Garden, sent Grayson Allen crashing to the floor with an ankle-breaking crossover in the first quarter. The move drew a strong reaction from the crowd, which then erupted as Brown sank a jumper to extend the Celtics’ lead.
James evidently was watching the Celtics-Bucks showdown, as the Los Angeles Lakers star reacted on Twitter by praising Brown and the filthy cross-up.
“JB cooking!! And that was nasty (three puke emojis),” James tweeted.
