(TSX / STATS) -- ATLANTA -- Boston forward Jaylen Brown was able to put aside his personal heartbreak for another night and helped the Celtics extend their winning streak to 15 games.

It has been a rough week for the Atlanta-area native. He learned Wednesday night that his childhood best friend had died and responded with 22 points in a win over Golden State.

Brown flew home on Friday to be with his family and came out Saturday to score a career-high 27 points and lead the Celtics to a 110-99 win over the Atlanta Hawks.
