Jaylen Brown is one cold-blooded kid.
Watch above for Brown’s postgame interview with ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt after the Celtics guard drained the game-winning three-pointer to beat the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night (h/t NESN). He was spotted chatting with ex-Celtics teammate Jae Crowder on the court after the game, and gave some insight into what the two said about his buzzer-beater.
“[Crowder] said that hurt him real bad,” said Brown. “And I said I wanted it to. I wanted that to sting a little bit.”
Of course, there’s nothing malicious or anything behind Brown’s comments. He said it with a smirk. But it’s great for Celtics fans to hear that Brown aspires to be an assassin on the court. He wants to punch you in the gut with that big shot.
The C’s will certainly need some big shots out of him if they want to make the NBA Finals – especially if they have to play the entire first round without Kyrie Irving (knee surgery). It’s a small, but promising sign for the team that Brown is willing and able to take crucial shots when they need him.
BONUS: Brown’s game-winning shot is even better when set to “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic!
