Jaylen Brown was on fire last night.

Catch up quick: Brown helped the Celtics cruise to victory in their first semifinals game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, 120-95.

  • This is just one of several shots Brown made last night (he scored 32 points).

Another highlight: Payton Pritchard came through at the end of the third quarter, beating the buzzer and bringing the Celts to 92 points at the time.

What we're watching: If they can keep the momentum going for Game 2 tomorrow night.
