After the Boston Celtics beat the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Jaylen Brown sounded like a player who expects his team to win the series. The NBA star said the next two games should be fun.

The Celtics have to win Game 6 to force a Game 7, which made Brown’s comments pretty bold.

“Experience is the best teacher,’ Brown said. “We are a resilient group. We’ve been through a lot. Obviously, it’s the first time being in this situation, but there’s a first for everything. We don’t look at it like we (are) out. We just take it one game at a time. We just breathe, come out, play basketball, take our time, and do what we (are) supposed to do.

“I think we’ll be fine. It’s a blessing to be able to play this game each and every night. It’s a blessing to be in the playoffs. There are highs, there are lows. There are intense moments. There are moments that (you’re) pissed off, moments where you’re extremely excited. It’s amazing. So, these next two games should be fun.”

The Celtics are looking to become the first team in NBA history to win a postseason series after trailing 3-0. Boston won Game 4 in Miami, so the Cs clearly have what it takes to win Game 6 in South Beach.

Brown scored 21 points in Game 5 while shooting 9-of-18 from the field and 3-of-5 from beyond the arc. The All-Star small forward is averaging 17.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists in the series.

“It’s going to take everything,” Brown said when he was asked what Game 6 is going to be like. “It’s going to be a dogfight. I imagine those guys will play better than they played tonight, and they’re going to come out aggressive. We’ve got to be ready to take their punch at home. We’ve got to be ready to be resilient and come out and do what we’re supposed to do.”
