Boston Celtics: Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown the New Dynamic Duo
The Boston Celtics are 6-3 to start the 2020-2021 NBA Season. They are one of the better teams in the NBA. One of the reasons why they are of the most interesting and dangerous teams in the NBA is because of the dynamic duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.
Tatum has stepped up his game big time early on in the season. I thought he was only a B star in the NBA, but Jayson Tatum is obviously an A star. He is currently in his fourth season. Tatum was the third overall pick out of Duke University in 2017.
He is currently averaging 26.3 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 4.0 APG, 0.9 BPG, and 1.0 SPG, in nine games played so far this season. Jayson Tatum is one of the best wing defenders in the NBA. He is also one of the most clutch scorers in the NBA.
Tatum is only 22 years old and he is only going to get better from here. He could be in the running for the MVP Award. Jayson Tatum is already a Top 30 player in the NBA this season.
Jaylen Brown is only 24 years old. He was also the third overall pick out of California in the 2016 NBA Draft. Brown is averaging 26.2 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 3.3 APG, 0.8 BPG, and 1.7 SPG, in nine games so far this season.
Jaylen Brown started to pop last season and he is now becoming one of the best players in the NBA. Brown is going to be a stud for a very long time.
This dynamic duo is the heart and soul of the Boston Celtics. This dynamic duo could be one of the reasons why they win an NBA title sometime soon.
The last time they made it to the NBA Finals was in 2010 and they lost in seven games against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Head Coach Brad Stevens is thrilled that he can rely on these two players every single night to drop buckets and play defense for them.
This one of the best dynamic duos in the NBA. It is going to carry them a long way. The Boston Celtics made it to the Eastern Conference Finals last season but they lost to the Miami Heat (3-4) in six games.
Boston is currently the fourth seed in the NBA Eastern Conference. They would face an improved New York Knicks (5-3) team in the playoffs if the season ended today.
They are just one game back of the Philadelphia 76ers (7-2) for the first seed in the Eastern Conference.
The Boston Celtics (6-3) next game will be at home on Friday night against the Washington Wizards (2-6).
They could win the NBA Finals this season, but Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and the rest of the Boston Celtics have a lot of work to do. This team is not particularly deep either for Head Coach Brad Stevens.
