Jaylen Brown seems mostly okay after scary fall

The Boston Celtics secured a spot in the National Basketball Association playoffs after overcoming the Minnesota Timberwolves 117-109 on Thursday.

Playing away to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Target Center went silent after the incident, and saw Brown's team-mate Marcus Smart drop to one knee in prayer. I was just happy that he was able to get up and walk on his own power.

Brown, who left the arena to undergo a CT scan, has rejoined the team.

With the game well in hand late in the third quarter, the second-year player out of Cal took off up the floor in transition, split two defenders and rose up for the jam. Wiggins went 6 of 21 from the field and had four turnovers to go along with 13 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Golden State improved to 7-0 since the All-Star break despite playing most of the game without Steph Curry, who was lost for the night to a rolled right ankle early in the first quarter. He was able to walk off on his own with 14 points, evaluated for concussion-like symptoms and taken to a hospital for precautionary testing. Friedell is a graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and joined ESPNChicago.com for its launch in April 2009.

Brad Stevens said Brown "felt pretty good leaving the arena".

The Boston Celtics guaranteed themselves a trip to the National Basketball Association playoffs with a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Making his first start since Phoenix's win over Memphis on February 28, Jackson played 13 minutes and tallied six points, two rebounds and two assists against Oklahoma City. After the game, a 117-109 Celtics win, Brown tweeted that he was "okay", albeit with "a headache".

Towns and Nemanja Bjelica both posted double-doubles for the Timberwolves, with Bjelica leading the team with 30 points and 12 rebounds.

The dynamic duo were in one fluid motion in the final frame - they combined for 15 of the C's 31 fourth-quarter points and shut the door on any potential Timberwolves comeback.

"It was just a scary fall from everyone's perspective", Celtics guard Kyrie Irving said.

Marcus Morris had 17 points while going three for five from long distance.

The Celtics next game is Sunday night against the Indiana Pacers at TD Garden.
