NBA: Brown looking for fourth quarter solutions

Jaylen Brown says Boston Celtics need to find a way to perform late on in games after they fell short in their comeback bid at Atlanta Hawks on Friday.

Boston are back in action on Saturday as they head to New Orleans. The Celtics can be backed at 10/23 to win in the Money Line and the Pelicans are 19/10. You can follow the action via our Sports Live Streaming platform.

Celtics fall short

Atlanta led by 15 points at the end of the first half but a big third quarter from Boston put them back in contention.  Brown sank a three-pointer to move to the Celtics to within a point of the Hawks early in the fourth but Atlanta produced a strong finish and ultimately claimed a 108-92 win.

Boston have struggled late on in games all season and have blown some big leads, with their 108-105 loss at New York Knicks last month as they allowed a 24-point lead slip away one notable example.

No complainst from Brown

Brown admits the Celtics didn't deserve to win in Atlanta and is aware they need to address their fourth quarter issues if they are to mount a serious challenge this season.

"We didn't deserve to win that game," he said, via NESN. "We play well in stretches but I turned the ball over too much. We turned the ball over too much and that's what cost us the game."

"We haven't been very good in the fourth quarter. And that translates from everything, execution from top to bottom," Brown said. "It just hasn't been great this year and especially in those moments, because we've lost too many games on the line. We've learned in those moments, but we got to definitely do something different."
