Brown is averaging career highs with 27.2 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. He's also shooting a career-best 49.8 percent from the field and 79.5 percent from the free throw line. He deserves to be an All-Star this season and also has a strong case to start in the game.
The Celtics lost 123-107 to the Warriors in Golden State last month, and Brown scored a team-high 31 points in that game. Thursday's game in Boston is the final Celtics-Warriors matchup of the regular season.
