The most memorable image from the Boston Celtics' win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series Sunday will be Jaylen Brown staring at Giannis Antetokounmpo after a dunk in the fourth quarter.
The photo (via AP Images) went viral following Boston's 112-90 victory.
"It really wasn't that spectacular, to be honest," Brown said about his dunk Monday, per NBC Sports Boston's A. Sherrod Blakely. "It was OK. I think the picture was a lot cooler than what it really was."
Brown was asked about his dunk on Antetokounmpo from a December matchup against the Bucks in Boston, and the third-year guard thinks that jam was better than Sunday's throwdown.
"I think the one in December was probably a little bit better, and a little bit more athletic -- versatile, left-handed. This one got more attention than that one did, so I don't know. I just try to come out and play. I don't really get into the politics of it."
Brown expects a powerful response from the likely league MVP on Tuesday night.
"I expect (Antetokounmpo) to come out and probably try to dunk on the whole team (in Game 2)," Brown said. "We just got to be ready and keep executing our game plan. I'm not paying attention to social media and stuff. I'm trying to focus on our team and what we got to do in Game 2."
Brown finished with 19 points on 8-for-14 shooting in Game 1. He was one of three Boston starters to score in double-digits. The Celtics will need another strong effort from Brown to take a 2-0 series lead back to Boston.
