Star man Gordan Hayward broke his leg in the opening game of the season after a bad fall, so when Brown rose for a dunk but then landed heavily on his neck and back, people were stunned silent.

Silence spread across Target Center with Timberwolves fans and all the players and officials distraught, as Brown lay on the ground motionless with medical staff hovering around his limp body.

Fortunately, Brown eventually got up and walked off the court on his own power.

Celtic forward Jaylen Brown goes for the spectacular finish, but really messes up the landing.

Celtics have three losses more than Eastern Conference leaders Toronto Raptors and will remain in second place after their recent win, which was the Celtics' sixth win in seven games.

However, there would seem to be a good chance that Brown suffered a concussion there as Harlan suggested, and the Celtics' swingman is indeed being evaluated for a concussion. Friedell is a graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and joined ESPNChicago.com for its launch in April 2009. Before leaving the game, Brown had 14 points (4-10 FG) and five rebounds.

Seizing early control proved critical because Boston head coach Brad Stevens was able to manage Irving's minutes (30) after he missed Monday's win over the Chicago Bulls with a knee injury.

The Celtics won the game 117-109 and clinched a playoff berth.

Brown will be out indefinitely, the Celtics said Friday. "I was just happy he was able to get up and walk off because that was one of the worst falls I've seen". He added 12 rebounds, but it wasn't enough for a Timberwolves team without injured All-Star Jimmy Butler.

It was far from just the Irving show, as Horford (20 points, eight rebounds and six assists), Tatum (12 points and five boards), Marcus Morris (17 points and five rebounds) and Terry Rozier (13 points) kept a Boston offense that finished with 28 assists rolling.

The Celtics next game is Sunday night against the Indiana Pacers at TD Garden.
