The Boston Celtics had one of their best wins of the season on Monday night against the Los Angeles Lakers. And with it came one of the biggest plays of the season.

In the Celtics dominating 139-107 victory, Jaylen Brown had a monster dunk over NBA legend, LeBron James. The play sparked the TD Garden crowd and helped to put an end to any comeback momentum the Lakers were building in the third quarter.

Here's a look at the play, via the Celtics on NBC Sports Boston Twitter account.

Chin spoke to Brown about what he was thinking about the dunk, and she also noted that he was more fired up than usual in the locker room after the game.

I asked him in the locker room if he knew he was dunking on LeBron as it was happening. And he said that he didn't, but he did know that it was a huge moment and loved every second of it.

Meanwhile, Forsberg marveled at Brown's athletic ability and how he was able to finish over LeBron.

Most guys jump and they come down. Jaylen went up, hit LeBron, and went higher. And I was like... that doesn't even make sense.
