Celtics' Jaylen Brown has nasty fall on dunk, says he has headache

Celtics' Jaylen Brown has nasty fall on dunk, says he has headache

There was a sense of déjà vu for Celtics fans Thursday night, as they watched forward Jaylen Brown crash to the ground and land hard on his back and neck after a dunk in the third quarter against the Timberwolves.

Brown, finishing a dunk, fell awkwardly as he lost his grip on the rim after being fouled, the Star Tribune reported. He stayed down for several minutes, and a stretcher was rushed out. Brown was down for an extended period of time but was able to get up and walk off on his own power.

Curry tweaked his ankle just over two minutes into the game, which the Warriors won thanks to Kevin Durant's 37 points and 11 rebounds. That was a positive sign, as was the tweet he sent after the game. "Just glad we got it out of the way pretty early".

Celtics center Al Horford Reynoso labeled it as one of the worst falls he has ever seen but was glad to see his teammate get up and walk on his own to the locker room.

Timberwolves: Three days after becoming a father again, 10-year National Basketball Association veteran and former league MVP Derrick Rose on Thursday signed with the Timberwolves in a transaction that felt like coming home to a team for which he has never played.

Surefire Hall of Famer Ichiro Suzuki is finalizing a one-year deal to return to Seattle, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale. Outfielder Guillermo Heredia is also still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, leaving Seattle thin at the position.

Russell Westbrook was efficient in the Thunder's 115-87 win over the Suns with 27 points on 11-of-14 shooting.

Paul George added 21 points, Corey Brewer had 17, Steven Adams 16 and Carmelo Anthony 11.

Hassan Whiteside scored 26 points as Miami topped visiting Philadelphia.

Irving led all Celtics scorers with 23 points (9-15 FG), seven rebounds and eight assists. Caris Levert scored 22 points, and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had 18 points and 12 rebounds to provide a spark off the bench for the Nets.

The move reunites Rose and Coach Tom Thibodeau, who were together in Chicago. Marcus Morris, Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart all played a big role.
