Boston Celtics Jaylen Brown takes scary fall walks off under own power
The Boston Celtics were breathing a little easier after beating Minnesota on Thursday night, and their relief was about more than just the outcome.
Jaylen Brown, who landed hard on his back and head following a dunk late in the third quarter, was going to be all right.
''It was just tough to see. I was just happy that he was able to get up and walk on his own power,'' teammate Al Horford said. ''That's probably one of the worst falls I've seen.''
Brown lost his grip on the rim as he finished the play, falling awkwardly ''in full backflip mode'' as Kyrie Irving put it, to the court with 1:31 remaining in the period. Brown stayed down and was still for several minutes, and a stretcher was rushed out. But Brown was eventually able to walk slowly to the locker room on his own, and the crowd at Target Center gave him a standing ovation.
