Jaylen Brown helped Celtics beat Warriors shortly after friend’s death

Jaylen Brown had a big showing on Thursday night during the Boston Celtics’ win, 92-88, over the Golden State Warriors. The Celtics youngster had 22 points, seven rebounds, two blocks, and two steals.

After Thursday’s game, we confirmed what had been rumored all day: Brown lost one of his best friends, Trevin Steede, on Wednesday night.

Steede could often be seen in Brown’s Instagram stories, and vice versa. Steede was the friend that Brown hooped with 1-on-1 in a recent video (seen at the top of this article) as part of a reaction to prove regular Joes can’t hoop with NBAers.

Brown spoke on Thursday expressing his pain:

No word yet confirming Steede’s cause of death, but thoughts are with his and Brown’s families.
