Jaylen Brown also angry at the NBA tournament floor

An attempt at branding that hurts. On a throw-in at the very end of the meeting between Raptors and Celtics, Jaylen Brown tried to free himself from his defender. But he slipped on the floor and hurt himself.

I slipped, that’s all. I strained my groin a little. We will see what it gives », begins by describing the Celtics player at a press conference. This goes on to call into question the Canadiens floor, specially used for the “In-Season Tournament”.

The floor was slippery throughout the match. We, the players, are there for the tournament because it will generate income, excitement, competition… But we must ensure that the field is playable. We cannot send our players and risk their health. Tonight I had the feeling that the flooring was unacceptable. Players were sliding everywhere, not just me », Annoys Jayson Tatum’s partner.

The floors of discord

A feeling confirmed by his teammate, Kristaps Porzingis, present at his side in front of the press: “ I clearly felt it. I saw him slip several times during the match and you can definitely feel it. Some marches were whistled because of the parquet. This is definitely something that needs to be improved. »

The speech of the Celtics players joins that of Luka Doncic who was also not convinced by the floor used by the Pelicans. “ Besides the colors, the parquet flooring was really bad. It was really slippery, especially in the racket, and in some places the ball didn’t bounce well. So if we have to play on these floors, it would be good to make sure that they are stable, that we can play on them », demanded the Slovenian.

Before this trip to the Raptors’ den, the Massachusetts players had had their first experience in the tournament, when they hosted the Nets, with another special floor.

The one we played in Boston was good, I thought it was good “, remembers Jaylen Brown, before insisting: “ Tonight it was slippery. We only played on two floors, so I don’t know. I’ve heard guys on other teams say they were sliding, in other places around the league. They need to make sure the focus is on this before someone gets seriously hurt. »
