Celtics guard Jaylen Brown’s savage taunt after scoring on Ben Simmons
Simmons, one of the Philadelphia 76ers’ best wing defenders, actually put up a good stand. It was just better offense from Brown as he dazzled his way to a fantastic bucket.
Brown had to let Simmons know he was too small after making the bucket with a savage flex.

The 6’10” Simmons couldn’t do anything on the play. Brown, who stands at 6’6″, was able to outmaneuver himself out of Simmons’ length to give him enough space for a fadeaway jumper. That’s as smooth as smooth gets for the Celtics forward.
Brown has been rolling this year in his fifth season for the Celtics. He’s been on a tear as one of Boston’s main men alongside Jayson Tatum. With Tatum missing his third game due to COVID-19, Brown continues to fill in the void as Boston’s main man.
12 games into the 2020-21 season, it’s been nothing but highs for the 24-year-old Brown. He’s been averaging a career-high in points (25.8 per game), field goal percentage (52.9%), three-pointers (2.4 per game), and assists (3.8 per game).
As long as he can stay healthy and dodge the COVID-19 outbreak, Brown is poised to have a monster season which bodes well in his bid to lead the Celtics back to the playoffs.
