Tatum is now one off of Antoine Walker’s Celtics record of eleven 30-plus point games during his age-21 season in 1997-98.
Tatum is doing it all without a patented wiggle, too.
LeBron James dubbed Tatum “a problem” after Sunday’s game, a nickname that rings more and more true with every game. Tatum has taken his offense to a new stratosphere, essentially taking over games for Boston while decimating opposing defenses.
“I love him. He’s a guy that is establishing himself as we’re all witnessing, we’re all watching. I love his game, I love watching him play,” said Melo.
There’s a lot of vintage Melo the way Tatum has been playing lately, though Tatum actually makes an impact on defense as well.
