Jaylen Brown is one of the Boston Celtics' brightest stars. It's also worth noting that the Celtics star recently made history by becoming the player with the most lucrative contract in NBA history.

Although his critics had something to say, no one can deny that Brown's trajectory in the league is limitless. Brown is a three-time NBA All-Star, an All-NBA Team player, and an All-Rookie Team selection.

While Brown failed to impress in the 2024 Slam Dunk Contest, the Celtics forward is proving that he can win when it matters the most. The Celtics are inching closer towards a return to the NBA Finals, especially after dispatching the Miami Heat in the first round in only five games before outplaying the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second with the same amount of games.

Moreover, the Celtics escaped with a victory in Game 1 against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals, thanks to a timely three by Brown. With Brown hitting another clutch basket, let's rank Jaylen Brown's 10 most clutch moments.

10. Giving the Celtics a lead with under two seconds left

Thanks to a defensive play, Brown was able to capitalize on a fastbreak layup, placing the Celtics ahead with just less than two seconds remaining. However, his clutch shot went for naught after Marco Belinelli hit a timely corner basket to send the game to overtime.

Fortunately, the Celtics still managed to steal Game 3, 101-98 in overtime to take a commanding 3-0 series lead on the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2018 NBA Playoffs.

9. Making up on defense

Brown isn't one to miss free throws. However, he missed one here to keep the door slightly opened against the New York Knicks. To make up for the miss, Brown put the clamps on Alec Burks by blocking his shot to seal the game. The Celtics escaped with a 101-99 win.

8. Nailing the dagger

There's no doubt that Brown has ice in his veins. With the Celtics holding a slim three-point lead with less than a minute of play, Brown's fake and timely corner three basically sealed the deal against the Brooklyn Nets.

7. Game tying three in a Finals rematch

The Golden State Warriors outclassed the Celtics in the 2022 NBA Finals in six games. However, the two teams engaged in a Finals rematch a few months later.

Brown surely didn't forget being denied a championship as he kept the Celtics in striking distance by hitting the game-tying 3-pointer with 18 seconds to go to send the game to overtime. The Celtics emerged victorious in OT, 121-118.

6. Keeping the Celtics alive

Down by four with less than 10 seconds to go, the game was usually as good as done. But not going down without a fight, Brown hit a crazy logo 3-pointer to cut the lead to one.

Despite made free throws by the Knicks, a quick Marcus Smart 3-pointer sent the game to overtime. From one clutch play to another, the Celtics pushed the game to two overtime periods before surrendering the game, 138-134.

5. Last-minute go ahead and-one basket

In another tight affair against the Knicks, Brown tried all he could to will his way for a Celtics victory. In fact, this and-one opportunity late in the game gave the Celtics a chance to tie the game. Although the Celtics pushed the game to two extra periods, they lost once again to the Knicks, 131-129.

4. From the parking lot

The Heat and the Celtics have had several intense series against each other in the playoffs. However, it's safe to say the intensity remains even during the regular season.

Down by three, Brown managed to hit this fadeaway 3-pointer from the parking lot. With the bank open, the Celtics successfully pushed for overtime. However, the Celtics suffered a 120-116 heartbreaking loss when the dust settled.

3. Off a missed free throw

The Houston Rockets heaped a huge sigh of relief when Jayson Tatum missed the free throw. But failing to secure the rebound, the ball managed to find Brown, who made the Rockets pay with a game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer. However, the Celtics still lost the game 111-110 in overtime.

2. Sending Game 1 to overtime from the corner

Brown is making headlines as of late thanks to this huge clutch shot to send the game to overtime. With Brown keeping the Celtics alive, Boston escaped with the victory in Game 1 of the 2024 Eastern Conference finals on its home floor against the Indiana Pacers to get them closer to a return to the Finals stage.

1. Game winner vs. Jazz

But among Brown's clutch shots in his career, this 3-pointer against the Utah Jazz has been his lone game-winning basket. This 3-point shot with only 0.1 seconds remaining propelled the Celtics to a victory in 2018.
