Article Summary:

Before exploring how Tatum is affecting games from the post, we need to investigate why he finds himself on the block in the first place.

To his credit, Tatum has done an exceptional job of blending his attacks when coming off a screen, with 48% of his looks coming via a drive.

The Golden State Warriors do a great job of “Icing” the pick-and-roll before it even occurs, getting between Tristan Thompson and Tatum early and forcing Tatum baseline.

Although these play types slow down the offense and aren’t currently in vogue around the league, Tatum is providing the Celtics with an additional outlet when the defense cuts off the lane.
