Jaylen Brown wants to prove why Celtics are best team in Eastern Conference

After losing their first two matches of the season, the Boston Celtics had a 16-game winning streak to propel themselves to the top of the Eastern Conference. It included a victory against the Philadelphia 76ers, which started their turn around, with a 102-92 win back on October 20. However, Jaylen Brown feels their opponents handed them the victory, and is eager to prove to them they deserve the result on the night.

The 21-year-old California product and the C’s will have that opportunity on Thursday, as they will once again face off versus the Sixers. Brown wants to send a strong message to them why they are the number one seed in the East and that they are the team to beat, according to Scott Souza of GateHouse Media.

Brown has been a big reason for the success the Celtics are having so far this season. He is playing at a high level, and is producing consistent numbers night in and night out, with solid averages of 15.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 32.2 minutes per game.

With the Sixers winning five of their last seven games and the Celtics wanting to bounce back from a rare loss to the Detroit Pistons, their matchup is expected to be a highly competitive one. Brown should be pumped up to start the game, and will certainly give his best to back up his comments recently.
