Brown’s defensive blunders cost Boston the game.
The Boston Celtics lost 115-116 against the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 4 of the 2nd round of the 2022-2023 NBA Playoffs held at the Wells Fargo Center on the 8th (hereinafter Korean time).
Boston’s beginnings were uneasy. It was because he could not control Joel Embiid (213cm, C) from the beginning of the game. Jaylen Brown (198cm, GF) struggled, scoring 12 points in the first quarter alone, but other teammates scored too few assists.
Even after that, Boston couldn’t catch the mood. In the second quarter, only James Harden (196cm, G) gave 15 points, and in the third quarter, he gave up 17 points to Embiid and Harden. At the end of the third quarter, Jayson Tatum (203cm, F) played an active role, but Tyrese Maxie (188cm, G) conceded a run and made it 83-92.
But Boston in the fourth quarter was different. Blocked the opponent’s goal with strong defense. In addition, even the goals of the players came out. In the 4th quarter, he scored 15-3 and succeeded in reversing. However, at the end of the quarter, Harden could not be controlled this time either. Marcus Smart (196cm, G) scored a free throw 51 seconds before the end of the 4th quarter to make it 107-15. However, Harden conceded a goal 16 seconds before the end of the fourth quarter, and the game went into overtime.
Not many goals were scored in overtime. But when Philadelphia scored, Boston followed. Then, in the 112-113 situation, Tatum succeeded in a difficult 3-point shot and made a turnaround. After that, if the defense succeeds, the situation can bring victory.
Philadelphia’s choice was Embiid. Embiid, who had a matchup with Tatum, attempted a post-up. Then Brown, who was in the corner, abandoned Harden and went to help defense. Then Embiid passed to Harden, which led to Harden’s 3-point shot. It was Brown’s defensive judgment that was regrettable. The run cost Boston the game.
On this day,카지노사이트 Brown scored 23 points with a field goal success rate of 62% (10/16). He also recorded 5 assists. However, he left regret in the last defense and lost the game. Brown said, “It’s my fault. Going to help defense against Embiid was a big gamble and Harden took the opportunity. It was a wrong judgment and I have to take responsibility,” he said, admitting his own defensive mistake.
Can Brown, who allowed Harden a final 3-point shot due to poor defensive judgment, lead the team to victory in Game 5? Boston and Philadelphia play Game 5 in the coming 10 days.
