Jaylen Brown missed two crucial free-throws with 7.1 seconds left to play in overtime in a game between the Celtics and Knicks. Boston was down by one point and could have taken the lead, but instead lost the game 117-120.
Brown’s teammate Jayson Tatum was not concerned with the missed free-throws, saying that the Celtics are confident in the shooting guard.
“I mean, everybody needs a ‘pick me up,'” Tatum said when asked if he had a message to Brown after the game “We got the utmost confidence in him. I can’t bet on NBA games, but I would bet everything I got if he was in that situation again, he would knock them both down. Just short-term memory, move on and get ready for Saturday.”
