Jaylen Brown placed in concussion protocol following brutal fall

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Nemanja Bjelica posted 30 points, 12 rebounds, and 2 assists in 40 minutes against the Boston Celtics on Thursday.

Celtics have three losses more than Eastern Conference leaders Toronto Raptors and will remain in second place after their recent win, which was the Celtics' sixth win in seven games.

In a game at the Timberwolves, Brown drove down the lane late in the third quarter for a two-handed dunk, but he was unable to hang onto the rim long enough to allow his momentum to swing back toward the court before he let go. Brown stayed down and was still for several minutes, and a stretcher was rushed out.

"I was right there. You just never wanna see that happen especially to a teammate of yours". "I was just happy he was able to get up and walk off because that was one of the worst falls I've seen". "I was right there".

Brown didn't return and finished with 14 points and five rebounds as one of six Celtics to score in double figures in a balanced offensive attack against an overmatched Timberwolves defense.

'I was terrified. I mean, I know what that fall is like, ' said backup Marcus Smart. But Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after the game that Brown "felt pretty good" as he left the arena for a CT scan.

Brown on Friday was placed in the NBA's concussion protocol, the team announced. "Appreciate everybody I'm ok".

The 24-year-old isn't the most gifted player offensively but he is regarded as one of the best defensive guards and often makes hustle plays on that end of the floor to help his team win.

The incident caught the attention of the basketball world. Brown was sent to a local hospital and eventually flew home with the team, encouraging signs after what initially looked like a very, very serious injury.

Kyrie Irving led the Celtics with 23 points.

The Timberwolves produced some passive, sloppy possessions that the Celtics took full advantage of, turning 11 first-half turnovers into 18 points.

It clinched a spot in the playoffs for the Celtics.
