Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown went viral for a funny comment he made following his team’s comeback win over the Indiana Pacers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday night.

Brown scored 24 points as the Celtics beat the Pacers 114-111 at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind. The Pacers were missing their best player, as Tyrese Haliburton was sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Even without Haliburton, Indiana led by double-digits for much of the game. When asked about Pacers players stepping up in Haliburton’s absence, Brown dropped an F-bomb while delivering a great quote.

“I think Indiana played well. We can say that we didn’t play as well tonight, but I felt like you just had to be out there to kind of feel it,” Brown said. “They was just flying around and then they were shooting the ball well. Some of those guys turned into f—ing Michael Jordan or whatever. It was like, what is going on? We couldn’t figure it out.”

The Pacers dominated much of the game. There were times when it felt like they couldn’t miss. Brown was likely referring to players like Andrew Nembhard, who scored 32 points on 12-of-21 shooting in Game 3, and T.J. McConnell, who had 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting. Nembhard averaged just 9.2 points per game during the regular season. McConnell averaged 10.2.

Somehow, it was not enough for the Pacers. They blew a late lead and fell victim to yet another questionable decision from head coach Rick Carlisle. Indiana is now down 3-0 in the series and on the verge of being swept.
