Jaylen Brown may ply his trade in Boston, but blood trumps his adopted hometown.

When the Patriots host the Jaguars in Sunday's AFC championship, Brown will have a rooting interest in the visitors. His cousin is Pro Bowl corner A.J. Bouye, and Brown isn't shy about his allegiances. He said he's going to wear his Bouye jersey to the Garden before the Celtics host the Magic.

"Good luck to the Patriots, but I hope my cousin picks off Brady three times and takes it to the house," Brown said.
