BOSTON – Jayson Tatum made two twisting, driving baskets in the final 15 seconds and finished with 31 points Sunday night, leading the Boston Celtics to a 111-110 comeback victory over the Washington Wizards despite 46 points by Bradley Beal.
Kemba Walker scored 21 points for the Celtics, and Daniel Theis had 20 points and nine rebounds.
The Wizards led 110-105 after Beal’s driving basket with 47 seconds left before the Celtics sliced it to one on Tatum’s acrobatic shot in the lane with 15 seconds left.
Washington then turned the ball over before Tatum’s twisting bucket gave the Celtics a 111-110 edge with 4.7 seconds left.
