The Boston Celtics beat the defending champs 92-88 to extend their winning streak to an amazing 14 games. The Celtics trailed by 17 points at one point in the game, but fought their way back and eventually won the game.
Jaylen Brown lead the Celtics with 22 Points and there was some concern that he would miss tonight’s big game:
Brad Stevens on Jaylen Brown: It’s been a tough 24 hours for him…we didn’t know if he was going to play, but then he decided to play. I think it was a good distraction for him. And he played pretty good.

Trevin ran the YouTube channel TLSTV and just a month ago, posted a very entertaining video of him and Jaylen playing 1-on-1.
RIP to Trevin. Your buddy balled out tonight in your honor, here were some of his highlights:
