It appears that plan is working.
The Celtics held their second practice as a team Saturday since entering the NBA «bubble» at Disney’s Wide World of Sports in Orlando, and according to the team’s social media, Brown was the star of the show.

Here’s a terrific 40-second clip of the Celtics wing sinking not one but two half-court shots before celebrating with what we’ll call a cartwheel:
Brown gleefully said, «I got my money» after hitting the first shot, but his opponent — our guess is that’s point guard Kemba Walker — matched him, leading the 23-year-old to knock down another shot and send his teammates into a frenzy.
Who said there’s no fun in the bubble?
The Celtics have two weeks to shake off the rust before their restarted 2019-20 season begins with a July 31 matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Boston currently is the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference, but some believe the C’s have a legitimate shot to contend for an NBA title this summer.
If that’s the case, the Celtics will need Brown — who was averaging a career-high 20.4 points and 6.4 rebounds before the season was paused — to display more of the talent he flashed Saturday on the practice court.
