Some Jaylen Brown numbers I find interesting:
Jaylen's red hot shooting during the last month plus of the regular season has continued:
Jaylen is shooting the corner three point shot at 77.8%.
For those who question Brown's BBIQ, how is this for being basketball smart. Jaylen Brown through seven playoff games has not taken one 2 point shot, not one, from the dreaded 16'-23' range. 67 FGAs so far this playoffs. None from that long mid range area That is the worst shot in basketball and Jaylen has completely removed it from his game in these playoffs. How intelligent and disciplined is that?!?!?!?!!!!!!
Jaylen has been huge on the boards. He has increased his rebounding percentages from 13.9 to 16.4 for DREB% and from 8.7 to 10.3 on total REB% for a total increase from 4.2 to 6.0 RPG. And this from the SG position.
Jaylen's WS/48 has nearly doubled this postseason from 0.076 during the regular season to 0.139 for the playoffs.
Simply put, Jaylen is playing smart, aggressive and with confidence and once again playing his best overall basketball during the playoffs. I am amazed at how well Brown plays when the games get bigger and more important.
I am expecting big things from the Brown/Irving backcourt tonight.
