These insane stats from Brown's 42-point game will delight Celtics fans


Wednesday night's game against the Memphis Grizzlies was one that Jaylen Brown will never forget.

The Boston Celtics guard poured in a career-high 42 points on 15-of-21 shooting and a sparkling 7-of-10 mark from 3-point range. He also tallied five rebounds, four assists and one steal.

One of the most impressive aspects of the performance was it happened in just 29 minutes of playing time. The Celtics had such a huge lead entering the fourth quarter that none of the team's starters, including Brown, played over the final 12 minutes of the game in a 126-107 victory.

If the score was tighter and Brown had played in the fourth quarter, he probably would have scored 50-plus points. Settling for 42 is still pretty good, though.

Brown, as you might imagine, made some history Wednesday night. Here are some impressive stats and milestones from his career-best game.

Brown is averaging 28 points per game on 56.2 percent shooting and 44 percent from 3-point range this season. He's taking his game to an All-Star level, and the Celtics absolutely need it with Kemba Walker injured and out of the lineup.
