WATCH: Jaylen Brown dunks over Bam Adebayo as Celtics bench goes wild

Who cares how Jaylen Brown started Game 5 for the Boston Celtics the way he finished?

After going just 2-7 in the first half with six points and four turnovers, Brown woke up to help the Celtics break away from the Miami Heat in the second half and help Boston make its first appearance in the 12 seasons closer to NBA Finals.

No game summed up the impact Brown had more than a dunk over heat center Bam Adebayo with 5-16 left, opening an 89-71 lead for the Celtics.

The Boston bench, of course, loved every second of it, namely Malik Fitts and Matt Ryan.

Miami’s contingent, including team president Pat Riley and general manager Alonzo Mourning … not so much.

Brown finished the game with 25 points on 10 of 19 shots, including a 5 for 9 shown from beyond the arc.
