Jaylen Brown is one crazy athlete. The Boston Celtics second-year forward and former third overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft has been flashing streaks of absolute dominance so far in Summer League basketball.
That’s a great sign for Boston, but not such a good one for the poor souls tasked with guarding Brown when he makes a break to the rim. Caleb Swanigan (number 50) and Josh Scott (No. 16) of the Portland Trailblazers learned this the hard way when the duo attempted to block Brown on a cut to the basket.

Boston’s Ante Zizic hit Brown perfectly in a stride with a bounce pass, allowing the USC product to slam home a thunderous dunk over the two Blazers defenders.
Brown finished the game with 13 points on a 30.8 percent shooting clip, to go along with eight rebounds, one block, one steal, and (probably) a poster of his insane dunk to take home. Meanwhile, Boston went on to defeat Portland 70-64 to improve to 2-0 in Las Vegas Summer League play.
