Article Summary:

For a very quick explanation, consider that in his first 195 career games, he scored 30 points five times; in his past 18 games, he’s scored 30 points seven times.

In the process, Tatum became the first player since Shaquille O’Neal back in 1994 to score at least 30 points on 60 percent shooting in three straight games. On Sunday, Tatum tied a career high with 41 points against the Lakers, and followed that up with 39 points on Tuesday night against the Blazers. Going back even further than just the past three games, Tatum is averaging 30.5 points in February, which is fifth in the league in that span, while shooting 51.4 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point land.
