Must C’s: Brad Stevens for 3!!!

In an otherwise miserable game, this was a golden moment.

With the Celtics up 96-93 at the midway point in the fourth quarter against the Kings, Jaylen Brown found Brad Stevens in the corner for an open 3:

OK, that’s not what happened. Brown was fouled by Buddy Hield in the post and drew two free throws. Unfortunately, it should have been an and-1 as Richaun Holmes clearly swats the ball on its downward trajectory. “They missed it,” Brown would say of the obvious goaltend in his post-game presser. What should have been a three-point play ended up being a one-point trip with Brown splitting the pair.

However, we did get this magical moment:

Good form. Feet square to the rim. Wide open. Teammates already up celebrating the make. Had Stevens canned that corner pocket triple, it would have made the loss in Sacramento a little more bearable. In the end, the Celtics dropped the second game of a back-to-back after beating the Warriors on Tuesday night. Their five-game road trip continues in Los Angeles against the Clippers on Friday night and concludes with games in Phoenix and Utah.
