Jaylen Brown on playing with Malcolm Brogdon: 'Malcom is really good at basketball'




 

Jaylen Brown played a key role in Boston's first victory of the '22-23 season, a preseason shellacking of the Charlotte Hornets at home. Brown contributed 24 points in 24 minutes as the Celtics cruised to a win.

Following the game, Brown was asked about playing alongside newcomer Malcolm Brogdon. Brogdon is a veteran scorer and leader in the NBA and was traded to the Celtics this offseason. Brown summed up his admiration of his new teammate succinctly.

"Malcolm is really good at basketball." Brown said after the game.

Brogdon himself was quick to praise his new club. He seemed ready and willing to help the team win. Jaylen Brown made note of this in his own post-game comments.

"He makes the right plays." Jaylen said of Brogdon. "He's a threat out there at all times. It's definitely just gonna make us better. Overall, he's more than capable of being a go-to player in this league."

"For him being able to come in and run things and also get himself going as you've seen tonight, he has a well-balanced game."

Brogdon finished the game with eleven points, five rebounds, and nine assists. He led all players in assists, and chipped in two threes to boot.
