Jaylen Brown notched a new career-high as the Boston Celtics scored an easy 126-107 win over the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday.

Brown tallied 42 points on an efficient 15/21 shooting from the field, which included 7 triples.

The Grizzlies were without young star Ja Morant, who had a Grade 2 sprain on his left ankle.

Brown has been the most consistent performer for the Celtics in the young season so far, averaging 28 PPG, 4.4 RPG, and 3.4 APG while shooting an impressive 56.3% overall.

That’s a huge leap from Brown’s 20 PPG average in the previous season.

It looks like him and Jayson Tatum have emerged as the 1-2 punch for Boston, and the team will have to continue relying on their contributions to go deep into the playoffs.
