It can be as easy as finding the right rhythm. And after struggling with fewer opportunities earlier in the season, Jaylen Browna€™s most definitely got the beat.

Wednesday night against the Pacers, he came off the bench for 22 points in 29 minutes as the Celtics punched out a 135-108 victory. It was his sixth time hitting the 20 barrier in the last 16 games after reaching it not once in his first 19.

Hea€™s had a lot of good games in the last month,a€ coach Brad Stevens said, a€œand ita€™s not going to be the same every night. But I do think that guys know where their spots are and arena€™t forcing the issue when theya€™re not there and taking them when they are.a€

To Stevensa€™ point, it wasna€™t there numerically for Brown on Monday when he had just four points on six shots in the manhandling of Brooklyn. But he did get five rebounds and four assists in his 24 minutes.

With Wednesdaya€™s 7-for-12 from the floor, hea€™s shot 55 percent over his last 10 games after batting just .407 in his first 25 and losing his starting job to Marcus Smart along the way.

When asked if there has been any trigger to get him into his groove, the smooth-for-22-years-old Brown replied, a€œNah, just hoopina€™.a€

But there was more than that early on for him and others who were trying to fit into smaller roles with the return of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward. There was pressina€™ and shruggina€™ and other such stuff.
