Celtics' Jaylen Brown Fell Straight On His Head After Dunk Gone Wrong

Danny Ainge Kyrie Irving will have to manage knee soreness his whole career

As well as Boston (46-20) played, there was a sombre mood in the locker room after the game as the team's minds were on second-year forward Jaylen Brown.

So Brown slams one home, hangs on the rim a bit and comes down wicked hard and awkwardly on his neck/back area.

Celtic forward Jaylen Brown goes for the spectacular finish, but really messes up the landing.

Boston went on the road Thursday and came away with a 117-109 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center, moving to 6-1 in its last seven.

Curry tweaked his ankle just over two minutes into the game, which the Warriors won thanks to Kevin Durant's 37 points and 11 rebounds.

Devin Booker, wearing a headband for the first time in his three-year National Basketball Association career, had 30 points for Phoenix. "For him to get up, that's a strong kid".

In Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook scored 27 points with 9 assists and 8 rebounds to lead Thunder to a 115-87 victory over the Phoenix Suns.

The Celtics led by as many as 18 points early in the third quarter.

The Celtics have had enough scary moments this season, but they suffered another fright against the Timberwolves Friday (AEDT).

After the game, Brown took to twitter to say he was feeling OK, despite the headache. He was able to walk off on his own with 14 points, evaluated for concussion-like symptoms and taken to a hospital for precautionary testing.

The Boston Celtics guaranteed themselves a trip to the National Basketball Association playoffs with a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Al Horford chipped in with 20 points, eight rebounds and six assists, while shooting 50 percent from the field.

Paul George added 21 points, Corey Brewer had 17, Steven Adams 16, and Carmelo Anthony 11.

The Celtics shot 49.4 percent from the field and 34.4 percent from 3-point range while picking up 28 assists.

After losing three straight games before the All-Star break, the time off came at a flawless time for the Boston Celtics as they were able to rest and regroup in a bid to return to form for the second half of the season. Pre-game coverage begins at 7:00 p.m., with tip-off set for 7:30 p.m. Catch the call of the game with Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell, live on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
