    Whether you’re shocked, mildly surprised or knew all along that the Boston Celtics would be up 2-0 in their series against the favored Philadelphia 76ers, Celtics fans have to be feeling good going into Game 3.

    Not only because the Celtics are 36-0 all-time when taking a 2-0 lead, but also because the team will have Jaylen Brown back on the court for Game 3.

    Brown of course missed Game 1 with a hamstring strain, and fought through pain to play in Game 3. Brown scored 13 points in 24 minutes during Thursday’s 22-point come from behind win. He looked to favor his hammy a number of times during the game and during stops in play.

    According to Brad Stevens, Brown will come off the bench and play about 25 minutes again. Brown said himself that he, along with the Celtics medical staff, have a strategic plan for Game 3.
