Tacko Fall’s hilarious reaction to Celtics star Jaylen Brown’s first triple-double
There has been plenty of drama surrounding the Boston Celtics this season, with Thursday’s collapse against the New York Knicks only ramping up the speculation about the future of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum together. The Celtics had a rematch against the Knicks on Saturday, but things went much better this time around, at least on the court.
Brown recorded the first triple-double of his career, racking up 22 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in a dominant 99-75 victory. Tatum had 19 points in a relatively quiet game, but Boston didn’t need him to do much, especially with Celtics killer Evan Fournier out of the lineup.
After Brown secured his triple-double, former Celtics center Tacko Fall had a little fun with him by digging up an old photo:

Boston needed a game like this after that Thursday debacle. Of course, there was still some drama off the court. Brown was asked about his future with Tatum, while Tatum fired back at Kendrick Perkins on Twitter after the former Celtics big man lobbed criticism at him. Even Tatum’s mom had something to say about Perkins’ comments, though she deleted her tweet. Bob Cousy got in on the criticism as well.
The Celtics are just 19-21 on the season as they try to navigate a variety of issues. While the Tatum-Brown pairing isn’t really the problem, many are wondering if Boston needs to shake things up in a big way. That chatter won’t quiet down until this team figures things out, so we’ll see if they can finally string some wins together and get hot. Saturday was a nice start.
