The Boston Celtics star guard Jaylen Brown was very critical of the Celtics’ performance in Monday night’s embarrassing 111-109 loss to the Houston Rockets, the worst team in the Western Conference.

While Brown did his part scoring a season-high 43 points, the All-Star wing was very critical of the Celtics’ lack of effort and energy throughout the game.

“Just a lack of effort, for sure,” Brown told reporters after the game. “Fifty-fifty balls, loose balls, they beat us … It just felt like they won every loose ball. They just wanted it more.”
