Jaylen Brown is a raw, athletic talent, but moments like the one we saw on Tuesday night show the kind of promise the Boston Celtics have in their No. 3 overall pick from 2016.
It started when Raul Neto drove on in transition toward the Utah Jazz basket. Brown was in pursuit, and Neto apparently thought he could scoop it past the Celtics rookie.
He was wrong, and Brown ended up blocking the shot back to Isaiah Thomas.
Thomas then switched the floor, and with Neto still recovering at the opposite end, Brown sprinted the full length of the court to get back in the action.
Thomas quickly passed Brown the ball, who then drove down the lane to score while drawing a foul.
Brown converted the and-1 opportunity for the old fashioned 3-point play.
