Celtics, meanwhile, clinched a spot in the 2018 playoffs with their win over the Timberwolves with 16 games still left to play in the regular season.

"We're so close as a group, and we'll make sure Jaylen is okay", Boston's Kyrie Irving said in a postgame interview.

Brown, 21, is averaging 14.1 points per game in his sophomore season after being the third overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

It was actually Nemanja Bjelica (30 points and 12 rebounds) and Taj Gibson (18 points) who did much of the offensive legwork when Minnesota trimmed an 18-point deficit in the third quarter to five at a point in the fourth, but Boston pulled away in the closing stretch. "I was just happy that he was able to get up and walk on his own power", teammate Al Horford said.

Russell Westbrook had 27 points, eight rebounds and nine assists as the Thunder crushed the Suns, 115-87. Devin Booker had 30 points for Phoenix.

Dario Saric scored 20 and J.J. Redick added 18 for Philadelphia.

The aforementioned game against Memphis was the best of Jackson's career to date, as he scored 29 points on 10-for-13 shooting and grabbed seven rebounds. The Celtics are now averaging 117 points a night since the All-Star break, while going 6-1 throughout that span. The move reunites Rose and Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau, who were together in Chicago. Rose spent his first eight National Basketball Association years in Chicago, five with Thibodeau as his head coach.

Jaylen Brown suffered a horrific fall during the Celtics' win over the Timberwolves on Thursday. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation of concussion-like symptoms.

Raptors coach, Dwane Casey, speculates that since his team are sitting atop the conference, other teams are inclined to perform at the highest level - which is exactly what happened, since the Pistons nearly bested them during over time. Marcus Smart kneeled in seeming prayer on the sideline by the C's bench.
