Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown had himself a career night against the Orlando Magic on Sunday, dropping 50 points and 11 rebounds to secure a home win in overtime, which is exactly the sort of a game that can go to a player’s head.
But Brown’s response after the win was not self-congratulatory in the slightest, remaining focused on what the team needs to grow, and how he himself can help it do so. In terms of what he managed to produce to help save the Celtics from another embarrassing loss, he was careful to single out his coach Ime Udoka in particular while reflecting on Udoka’s role in helping him grow his game.
“Ime has been great,” explained the Georgia native, crediting the Celtics coach’s confidence as a major factor behind his growth as a player.
