- Boston small forward Jaylen Brown left the Celtics' game Thursday night at Minnesota after landing hard on his back following a dunk late in the third quarter.

Al Horford immediately rushed over and made sure Brown stayed down until help arrived. Laying motionless on the court for three minutes before a stretcher was brought out, Brown was ultimately able to get back to his feet and walk off the Minnesota floor under his own power, and with an acknowledgement to the crowd in attendance.

Brown, who walked off the court on his own, later left the arena to undergo a CT scan before rejoining the Celtics for the trip to the airport.

A number of National Basketball Association players watching on TV took to Twitter to express their concern for Brown and relief that he was able to walk off the court.

Russell Westbrook had 27 points, eight rebounds and nine assists as the Thunder crushed the Suns, 115-87.

They remained two games behind Eastern Conference leaders Toronto - which booked their playoff berth on Wednesday, March 7.

Boston announced Brown suffered concussion-like symptoms and was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation.

Coach Brad Stevens said Brown "felt pretty good leaving the arena".

National Basketball Association team Toronto Raptors have successfully secured a spot at the post-season playoffs with their win against the Detroit Pistons last Wednesday night, March 7, at the Little Caesars Arena with a close game that went into overtime.

The Celtics consistently generated quality shots on the offense, with crisp ball movement and a dose of ridiculous shot making from Kyrie Irving. It's just their hands get slippery or guys are just underneath them and scary falls happen like that.

"It was just tough to see". I've done it in high school the same way.

Kyrie Irving flirts with triple-double and the Boston Celtics secure a spot in the playoffs.

Kyrie Irving finished with 23 points on 9 of 15 shooting and had eight assists as the Celtics won for the sixth time in seven games, 117-109 at Minnesota.

Nemanja Bjelica had 30 points and 12 rebounds and Taj Gibson added 18 points to lead the Timberwolves, who lost their third consecutive game and fell for the fourth time in six games.
