Brown’s strength is inspiring.
Jaylen Brown just played the Celtic’s biggest game of the season so far with a heavy heart.
After a 92-88 win over the Warriors where he scored 22 points, Brown told reporters that his best friend passed away the night before the game:
Brown said he had known his friend Trevin Steede since high school:
That’s rough, man. There’s really no other way to describe that. It’s hard to do anything after losing someone important to you — let alone your best friend. Our condolences go out to Brown, Steede, and their families.
His teammates have his back, too. Kyrie Irving said the team gave Brown the game ball after his big performance:
Some things are bigger than basketball, and life itself is one of them. Brown’s strength to come out and play what may have been his best game of the season is incredible.
