The explanation behind Brown’s outstanding performances against the Heat might be as simple as a pick your poison situation for Miami. Elite defensive wing – SF Jimmy Butler – can only guard one of them and he’s typically assigned to SF Jayson Tatum because Butler is 6-foot-7 and Tatum is a 6-foot-8 versatile scorer that requires the attention of All-NBA caliber defender.
Miami did add three-and-D specialists SF Jae Crowder and SF Andre Iguodala to help out with this and future matchups, but they could be preoccupied with Tatum or SF Gordon Hayward, who’s looked good since the NBA restart.
Either way with all the talent on the Celtics roster and Brown’s recent success in the bubble and against the Heat, we can BET ON BROWN SCORING AT LEAST 20 POINTS (+105). New to sports betting? Every $10 wagered on Brown scoring at least 20 points returns a profit of $10.50. Bet now!
