After the Indiana Pacers eliminated the Celtics from the NBA’s inaugural In-Season Tournament, ESPN posted a graphic on Instagram highlighting Jaylen Brown’s performance over the last two Boston matchups.

Brown attempted 43 field goals and registered zero assists in Boston’s matchups with the Philadelphia 76ers and Indiana Pacers.

“Jaylen Brown been gettin’ ’em up the last two games,” the caption read with the watching eyes emojis.

In the Celtics’ 125-119 victory over the Sixers, Brown shot 40% from the field, hitting 8-of-20 shots to score 20 points. The 27-year-old put up 30 points in Boston’s 122-112 loss to the Pacers on Monday night by connecting on 14-of-23 shot attempts.

Brown clapped back at ESPN when he replied to the post.

“Y’all corny watch the game,” Brown wrote.

It’s unclear if Brown was commenting directly to ESPN or the variety of comments under the post comparing him to Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. and Brooklyn Nets forward Cam Thomas.

There were plenty of comments defending the Celtics star as well.

“Posting this after he put up 30 on 60% shooting is nuts,” The Celtics Fan Page wrote.

Boston will be back in action Friday night when it hosts the New York Knicks at TD Garden. The Celtics lead the regular-season series 2-0 by defeating the Knicks, 108-104, at Madison Square Garden to kickoff the 2023-24 season and 114-98 at TD Garden last month.
