-- Jaylen Brown should probably take a break from high-fives until his injured hand fully recovers.

Brown suffered a bone contusion in his right hand about a month ago and said he re-injured it Friday night after the Cetlics’ win over the Mavericks at TD Garden when he high-fived a fan and the fan was stronger than he expected.

However, Brown was laughing about the incident, so he doesn’t appear to be that concerned. But he is definitely still on the road to recovery.

-- Former Patriot Danny Amendola surprised a boy wearing his jersey last week by introducing himself.

When Amendola saw the boy in Miami wearing his No. 80 jersey, he decided to meet him and captured the moment on video.

"Hey bro, bro, come here," Amendola said to the boy. "You know whose jersey you're wearing?"

"Yes. Danny Amendola,” the stunned boy replied, before Amendola said, "That's me, how are you brother?"

Amendola also took a photo with the boy in a moment he will surely remember forever.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Our coaches have always told us it is not where we play, it is how we play and so much is unpredictable in the postseason. This isn’t four out of seven or three out of five, this is a one-game season and the team that plays the best wins. I would say the team that plays the best over the course of the regular season hardly wins very often, you know, the Super Bowl.” -- Tom Brady, on why the best teams in the regular season usually don't win the Super Bowl
