Jaylen Brown has turned out to be a key player for the Celtics and averages 23.0 points per game for them. He has been switching between small guard and small forward for the team. Starting his NBA career in 2016, Brown still has a lot of potential to elevate his game in the next stage of his career.

Brown played for the California Golder Bears at the collegiate level. ESPN and Scout had him as a five-star recruit, while 247Sports had him as the No. 4 overall recruit in the class of 2015. However, he declared for the NBA Draft after a one-and-done season with them.

What happened between Jaylen Brown and Myles Turner?

Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers met in Game 4 this week in which Jaylen Brown led the Celtics to a victory with a scoreline of 105-102.

However, there was a heated exchange of words in the third quarter between Brown and Pacers' Myles Turner when Turner and Celtic's Derrick White clashed with each other and ended up on the floor.

"Watch that sh**," said Jayen Brown.
"Come her like a man," replied Myles Turner.

Jaylen Brown didn't just stop there. In the post-match interview, he had some verbal volleys to dish out:

"His girl was probably watching, so he had to do something."

Brown scored the match-highest 29 points in the game while recording 6 rebounds and 2 assists.
