Jaylen Brown on Celtics' Mindset After Sweep: 'Continuing to Get Better'

When the horn sounded Monday night in Barclays Center, the Celtics completed their series sweep over the Nets. With an average margin of victory of +4.5, the third smallest margin of victory in a four-game series sweep in League history, the Celtics showed a much-improved ability to close out games.

Boston star Jaylen Brown included the need to continue to get better on the Celtics’ to-do list following this series.

“A lot [on how much confidence this win gives the Celtics]. As you maneuver through the playoffs, that’s a part of it — teams gain more and more confidence, so we’re looking forward to our group continuing to get better.”

Brown averaged 22.5, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game during the first round of the playoffs.

Brown’s Celtics were the only team in the League to sweep their opponent in the first round, giving them an extra few days of valuable rest. Boston will face the winner of the Bucks versus Bulls series, which is currently 3-1 in Milwaukee’s favor.
