Jayson Tatum has been playing for the Boston Celtics for a while, but Jaylen Brown keeps getting better.
He has evolved into somewhat of a 1B to his 1A and is no longer the Robin to his Batman.
At least, that’s what renowned analyst Doris Burke appears to believe, as she recently asserted that he has reduced the distance between himself and his more well-known teammate.
“I think Jaylen Brown has closed the gap a little bit in terms of the difference level between he and Jayson Tatum.”

Brown still needs to do a better job of handling the basketball and not turning it over as much, according to Burke.
She mentioned the Celtics’ need for increased aggression and mental toughness and that she wasn’t yet prepared to write them off for the series.
There is no arguing that the Boston Celtics have more than enough skill and resources to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers at the TD Garden after completing the job on the road.
However, the team hasn’t been consistent throughout the season, and it seems like their level of energy fluctuates.
Too frequently, the Celtics have played below the level of their opponents, and occasionally, their offense has either stalled or just gotten out of control.
In contrast to Tatum, Brown has a history of stepping up when his team needs him the most.
When the Celtics try to avoid elimination in their most important game of the season, it will be intriguing to see who is in the lead.
