Two of the top title contenders in the Eastern Conference are doing battle on Christmas Day. In the opening game of a huge slate, the Boston Celtics opened up a first-half lead against the defending champion Toronto Raptors.
That included this awesome play by the potential All-Star duo of Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker in transition. Check out Walker dropping the ball to Brown, who threw down a roaring dunk.
These two continue to excel in their first season as teammates. This play is indicative of a duo that’s already on the same page.
It has the 20-7 Celtics looking to make a statement against the defending champs on national television.
