Jaylen Brown's return for Game 2 doesn't look promising. According to Celtics coach Brad Stevens, Brown is considered doubtful. Despite Brown's confidence Tuesday -- when he guaranteed A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston he would make his return Thursday night at TD Garden -- team officials are...

Jaylen Brown knows he should probably be out for a couple of weeks after suffering a Grade 1 sprain of his hamstring in Game 7 against the Bucks. But it's the playoffs, so Brown had a guarantee for Celtics after Monday night's 117-101 win over the Sixers in Game 1 of the conference semifinals. "I'...

Look up and down the Celtics roster, and you'd be forgiven for wondering if half the team is old enough to drink, drive, or vote. The C's entered the playoff as the fifth-youngest team in the league, thanks to promising stars like Jayson Tatum (20) and Jaylen Brown (21), who can still remember high...

There are two ways to look at Sunday's 104-102 loss to the Bucks in Game 4 of the first round of the playoffs, and we won't know which is valid until the series ends. The first is that the Celtics let a golden opportunity evaporate when Marcus Morris back-rimmed a baseline jumper at the buzzer that...

Jaylen Brown stood at his locker in Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena last May in a moment of big-picture disbelief. "Two years ago, I was in high school," he marveled. "Now I'm playing in the Eastern Conference Finals." There was a happy-to-be-here quality that made perfect sense. Just 20 years old...

Giannis Antetokounmpo wasn't the only freak on the court Tuesday. Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown is an athletic marvel in his own right, a 6-foot-7 leaper who is becoming a matchup nightmare at all three levels. Put a small defender on him, he'll shoot over the top. Sag off him and he'll drill a 3-...

Picture a random NBA game with star teammates fouled out in overtime. The final frantic moments become a scramble for survival. If the remaining mismatched parts somehow produce a win, thank a higher power you only had to navigate the last 150 seconds. Now imagine that scenario playing out for 48...

The Celtics controlled their own destiny in one key sense -- if they beat the host Wizards on Tuesday night, they could avoid John Wall and Co. in the first round of the playoffs. No such luck. The Wizards turned a tense game at halftime into a laugher, rolling to a 113-101 victory that leaves all...

Playing without a point guard is apparently the tipping point. And even then, barely. The Celtics have thrived through all manner of injury this season, but Tuesday night in Milwaukee provided a unique test. With Terry Rozier a late scratch with a sprained ankle, the C's faced the Bucks without any...
