The Boston Celtics have two of the best young stars in the NBA, and these players engaged in a fun 1-on-1 game after practice Tuesday.

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown both are in the midst of career seasons for the Celtics. Tatum made his first All-Star appearance and won Eastern Conference Player of the Month in February, while Brown is averaging a career-high 20 points per game and playing exceptional perimeter defense.

Tatum and Brown sharpened their skills in a game of 1-on-1 in the Orlando bubble yesterday, and it provided some fantastic footage.

Tatum and Brown arguably will be the two most important players for the Celtics when the 2019-20 season resumes next week. It's hard to envision the C's making a deep run in the playoffs if these two young phenoms don't play at a high level at both ends of the court. Tatum, in particular, will be among the most watched players in the bubble from any team. He's the Celtics' best player and leading scorer, and reviews of his fitness and play during practice over the last few weeks have been strong.

The action begins for real next Friday when the Celtics take on the Milwaukee Bucks in their first seeding game. This matchup will be broadcast on NBC Sports Boston.
