“Drug Test on the Way”: Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum Torching Kyrie Irving’s Nets Like They’re Nothing Has NBA Fans in Disbelief

The Boston Celtics came close to the championship trophy last season but unfortunately fell short to the Golden State Warriors. It seems like they are determined to make up for past mistakes this year, and so far, they have been just that. The recent matchup with the Brooklyn Nets was a treat to watch for Celtics fans as they witnessed their dynamic duo take over the game. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown both put up impressive performances as they crushed the Nets on Wednesday night.

The Celtics are not just the top contending team in the Eastern Conference but in the entire league this season so far. It seems like the disappointing defeat in the 2022 Finals has fueled Jayson Tatum’s Celtics. Following the win against the Brooklyn Nets, the Celtics now have 37 wins out of the 52 games played so far.
