Jaylen Brown provides update on his health after terrifying fall

Jaylen Brown provides update on his health after terrifying fall

But Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after the game that Brown "felt pretty good" as he left the arena for a CT scan in hospital.

Brown aggressively slammed the ball down for a two-handed dunk but he hung on to the rim for too long which nearly led to disaster.

Brown's hands seemed to slip off the rim before he was ready to let go, throwing off the balance on his dismount.

Late in the second quarter Aron Baynes got absolutely posterized by Karl-Anthony Towns!

With Curry sidelined, the Spurs led 50-46 at halftime and 87-78 at the end of the third quarter. They took care of business on their first try.

During the second quarter Marcus Smart nearly brought the house down with this helluva slam-bam put-back.

Kyrie Irving returned after missing Monday's game to lead Boston with 23 points, eight assists and two steals. But they wouldn't score another point off a C's turnover for the rest of the game.

A number of National Basketball Association players watching on TV took to Twitter to express their concern for Brown and relief that he was able to walk off the court. Following the game there was good news, as the Suns announced that an MRI on Jackson's knee revealed no structural injury.

Given the way his arms clenched immediately after the fall, it would be a surprise if Brown did not suffer a concussion. But the Celtics kept their foot on the gas, while holding onto win 117-109.

Kyrie Irving flirts with triple-double and the Boston Celtics secure a spot in the playoffs.

"It was just a scary fall from everyone's perspective", Celtics guard Kyrie Irving said.

Celtics center Al Horford Reynoso labeled it as one of the worst falls he has ever seen but was glad to see his teammate get up and walk on his own to the locker room.

The Celtics bench stayed hot, dropping 42 points, with Morris leading the way with 17 points (7-15 FG) and five rebounds.

The Celtics shot 49.4 percent from the field and 34.4 percent from 3-point range while picking up 28 assists.

It was actually Nemanja Bjelica (30 points and 12 rebounds) and Taj Gibson (18 points) who did much of the offensive legwork when Minnesota trimmed an 18-point deficit in the third quarter to five at a point in the fourth, but Boston pulled away in the closing stretch.
