With the All Star break looming after tonight’s clash, now is a perfect opportunity for Brown to get healthy for the final stretch of games in the regular season. With Brown being the Celtics primary wing defender on the starting unit, Celtics coach Brad Stevens will now look to other options to match up against Kawhi Leonard tonight.
