Jaylen Brown puts Unicorn in the rim

Brown's dunk over Porzingis was electrifying, but likely not as charged as coach Brad Stevens was in watching his player not get back in defense.

In the course of the Boston Celtics' blowout win over the New York Knicks, forward Jaylen Brown punched it over Kristaps Porzingis, in the highlight of Wednesday's NBA slate.

Coming down on a break, Brown coasted from the wing, in-and-out dribbling past Tim Hardaway Jor.

Jumping off the wrong foot, he met the ready and prolific shot-blocker Porzingis at the rim, where he would win the battle.

(On a scale of) one to 10? On my scale? That's about a five.

The best part wasn't the dunk - it was coach Brad Stevens' anger in seeing the second-year player not get back on defense.

Brown, who's been getting All-Star consideration, scored 14. He's averaging 14.1 points and 5.5 rebounds a game.

The star of the night, however, was Boston guard Terry Rozier, who accumulated 17 points, 11 rebounds, and ten assists to become just the second player in NBA history with a triple-double in his first start.
