The Boston Celtics swept the Indiana Pacers 4-0 in the 2024 NBA Eastern Conference Finals with a 105-102 win in Game 4 on Monday night at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Jaylen Brown, who scored a game-high 29 points against the Pacers in Game 4, was surprised to win the Larry Bird Eastern Conference finals MVP and gave a hilarious reaction after winning the award in the post-game press conference.

Celtics star forward Jaylen Brown averaged 29.8 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and 0.8 blocks while playing 40.9 minutes per game in the Eastern Conference Final series against the Pacers.  Jaylen Brown posted a series of pictures on X and captioned, " God is the greatest 🏆"

After not being named in any of the three All-NBA teams this season, Brown was unhappy and proved his mettle in the series against the Pacers. Apart from his game-high 29 points against the Pacers in Game 4, Brown registered six rebounds, two assists, and three steals to help his side clinch a three-point victory. In a post-game interview, Brown reacted to his ECF MVP award and said, "I wasn’t expecting it at all. I never win s**t.  I was just happy we won."

The Celtics have reached their second NBA Finals in three seasons and will face the winners of the Western Conference Finals for the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy. In the WCF, Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving's Dallas Mavericks are currently lading Anthony Edwards' Minnesota Timberwolves 3-0 with Game 4 scheduled to take place at the American Airlines Center on Tuesday night.
