Jaylen Brown is adjusting to playing with a new high-level scorer, Kristaps Porzingis, on the Boston Celtics. The team’s offense hasn’t been as cohesive as expected, with only 50% of Brown’s field goals assisted.
However, in a recent game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Brown had a standout performance with 26 points, 10-of-16 shooting, and eight assists, showing positive signs of improvement.
“Definitely just another part of my game that I’ve been growing,” Brown said of the eight assists. “This is a new year, it’s a new season, and I feel like I’m playing some of my best basketball just how I’m seeing the floor.
“And as I get into the flow and the rhythm of things, I feel like I’ll be able to continue to do that. I think when I get going, more guys playing off me, trusting that I’m going to make the right read, I think we should go to that a lot more.”
