The Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown show
That’s because young dynamic duo Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown put the team on their shoulders and took off Friday night at TD Garden.
Both players came out on fire and finished the game with 26 points apiece. On a night when Kemba was quiet, it was great to see this combination really take turns commanding the offense.
