Brown Gets First Triple-Double As C’s Down Knicks, Heat Blow Out Suns On The Road

Jonathan Grant | January 9th, 2022

Jaylen Brown might have had to wait a while to get his first NBA triple-double, but the wait was worth it for him on Saturday night as the Boston Celtics took down the New York Knicks 99-75 at home to bring their record up to 19-21 on the season. Brown, who has steadily gotten better and better since entering the league in 2016, scored 22 points to go along with 11 rebounds and assists in the blowout display. He also got some help from the man “he can’t play with” as Jayson Tatum provided 19 points of his own to the cause.

Another aspect of this win was the way they played defense (or the way the Knicks shot the ball), as the visiting New Yorkers failed to reach 20 points in any of the last three quarters. That held them back and ultimately saw them fall by the wayside here, with both teams sporting that same record through 40 games. Meanwhile, the late game of the evening was taking place in Phoenix as the Suns welcomed the Miami Heat to town. Deandre Ayton and the full cast featured, but the Heat were the ones that controlled things, particularly in the second quarter, as they took an impressive 123-100 win from one of the best teams in the entire Association. Both Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson came off the bench with ridiculous games, scoring a combined 60 between them. Herro had 33 points over the course of 34 minutes while Robinson had 27, draining eight three-pointers along the way in 29 minutes of action. Devin Booker posted 26 for the hosts, but they didn’t get their typical double-double performances from either Ayton or Chris Paul and that ultimately showed in the final result.
