Brown had 30 points, three rebounds, and two steals on 11-18 shooting from the field, 3-5 shooting from three, and 5-8 shooting from the line.

“We’re much more upbeat, we’re having a lot more fun, and we’re winning,” Jayson Tatum said after the game, via the Celtics.

“Once you’re winning, that cures a lot of things.”
