Jaylen Brown named Eastern Conference Finals MVP after Boston Celtics sweep Indiana Pacers

The Boston Celtics defeated the Indiana Pacers 105-102 last night at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, winning the Eastern Conference Final series 4-0. Jaylen Brown played a key role for the victory, scoring 29 points, with Jayson Tatum adding 26. Andrew Nembhard was the top-contributor for the Pacers with a double-double of 24 points and 10 assists with four of his teammates also finishing with double-digit points.

Boston Celtics forward-guard Jaylen Brown has been awarded the Larry Bird Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 2024 Eastern Conference Finals. Brown’s outstanding performance throughout the series was crucial to the Celtics’ success.

Brown averaged 29.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game in the Eastern Conference Finals. Reflecting on his leadership this season, Brown stated, “Marcus Smart, one of my brothers that got traded, he was one of the voices of our team. When he wasn’t here I wanted to make sure I stepped in.” He added, “As long as my team knows my value, my city knows my value, my family. That’s all I really care about.”

With Brown and Tatum leading the charge, the Celtics look poised for a strong showing in their 23rd appearance in NBA Finals.
