Jaylen Brown able to leave court on his own after hard fall

Jaylen Brown able to leave court on his own after hard fall”

A scary moment occurred in the third quarter of Boston's game against Minnesota on Thursday night.

Instead of coming down gracefully on his two feet, as he has so many times before, Brown instead fell flat on his back and neck, folding up violently on the baseline under the basketto the court after a fast-break dunk and landed directly on his back and neck.

"It was just tough to see". Al Horford chipped in 20 points and eight boards for the Celtics, who improved to 46-20. It's just their hands get slippery or guys are just underneath them and scary falls happen like that.

"For him to get up, that's a strong kid", Boston's Marcus Smart said. "Took everything he had. Our training staff, they were there immediately and they were the ones telling him, 'Stay down.' We were just there, just kind of around him for support, praying that he was going to get up and be fine". He was able to walk off on his own with 14 points, evaluated for concussion-like symptoms and taken to a hospital for precautionary testing.

Seizing early control proved critical because Boston head coach Brad Stevens was able to manage Irving's minutes (30) after he missed Monday's win over the Chicago Bulls with a knee injury.

The C's came away with a 117-109 triumph in Minneapolis and it sees them join the Toronto Raptors as the only teams to have clinched a playoff berth this season. Caris Levert scored 16 of his 22 points in the second half and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds off the bench as Brooklyn sent Charlotte to its fifth straight loss since a five-game winning streak.

Nemania Bjelica had his best game of the season for the Timberwolves, scoring a career-high 30 points, including six three-pointers to go with 12 rebounds.

Without Butler, the Wolves needed big production from their other big offensive guns: Karl-Anthony Towns, Jeff Teague and Andrew Wiggins.
