Jaylen Brown made career history on Sunday night, scoring 26 points and amassing 10,000 points in the Boston Celtics Game against the Portland Trailblazers. The Celtics got their 13th straight home victory with a 124-107 win. 

In the opening minute of the second half of the game Brown secured his 10,000 point record with a left-handed scoop shot. The crowd at TD Garden erupted in a standing ovation during the next timeout of the game. 

Jayson Tatum, the team’s leading scorer, averaging 27.0 points per game, has sat out for six straight games due to a right knee contusion. Kristaps Porzingis had his third-straight double-double and 10 boards in just 27 minutes. Boston currently leads the NBA. 

Boston secured a home-court advantage and the league’s best record in the playoffs last week. The Boston Celtics play at the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.
