Kyrie Irving wasn’t the only one to throw down a surprising dunk during the Celtics’ losing effort Friday night in San Antonio.

Jaylen Brown’s putback slam on frequent dunk victim Pau Gasol showed the second-year guard’s new goggles certainly aren’t impeding his leaping ability.

It also got Irving and the entire Celtics bench on their feet.

Unfortunately, Brown himself didn’t actually get to enjoy the glory of his play as much as his teammates. Might have to readjust the goggles next time.
