Jaylen Brown, DeMar DeRozan, Jru Holiday Highlights, Ohtani’s Blisters

BASKETBALL

In Tuesday night’s playoff games, the Boston Celtics, New Orleans Pelicans, and Toronto Raptors were all victorious leading 2-0 in the first round.  At 21 years old, the Celtics Jaylen Brown provided one of the highlights of the night by becoming the youngest player in Celtic franchise history to score 30 points in a playoff game. Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan also made the highlights with a game-high 37 points, tieing a playoff career high. Rounding out career highs for the night, the Pelicans’ Jru Holiday made a huge contribution with a playoff career high of 33 points.

BASEBALL

The Los Angeles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani has become the most exciting player in Major League Baseball. At 23 years old, the Japanese phenomenom has been wowing the crowds with his pitching and batting. Baseball fans eagerly await his next few games, as he could become the first player to hit three homers and win three games by the end of April. Unfortunately for Angels fans, Ohtani did not accomplish this feat Tuesday against the Red Sox. Ohtani was pulled after only two innings due to blisters on his hand.
