Even Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James couldn’t help but react to Jaylen Brown’s hot start and brutal ankle-breaker in Game 2 of the Boston Celtics’ series against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Brown scored 17 points in the first quarter of the contest to catapult the Celtics to a 32-21 lead. However, it was not only buckets that he dropped in the opening frame, with Grayson Allen hitting the floor as well after falling victim his epic crossover.

Upon seeing the play, LeBron James quickly took to Twitter to express his awe with the move. No offense to Allen despite his efforts to defend, but that was a really nasty ankle-breaker. It was so clean as well that it’s hard not to appreciate it.

Jaylen Brown played poorly for the Celtics in Game 1, finishing with just 12 points on 4-of-13 shooting from the field. He was clearly hampered by his hamstring injury at the time, and it showed with his lack of explosiveness and struggles to score.

Things are way different in Game 2, though. Not only was he able to get back his usual burst, but he definitely started with a lot more confidence than he did in their previous outing.

Brown’s consistent play will be crucial for the Celtics in the series. If he is able to replicate his latest first quarter display, then Boston will be even harder to stop.
