WATCH: Jayson Tatum Eastern Conference Player of the Week highlights (4/26-5/4)

USA Today


Article Summary:

Boston Celtics All-NBA small forward Jayson Tatum might have only appeared in three of four games last week, but he made them count, starting the week with a 35-point, 8-rebound, 8-assist outing in a loss to the Charlotte Hornets, then matched franchise legend Larry Bird’s scoring record with the team in an overtime win over the San Antonio Spurs.

He then went out and scored another 33 points and 5 assists in a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, good enough to average 42.7 points, 6 rebounds and as many assists for the week with a missed game against the Oklahoma City Thunder not considered.

While it would have been a lot more exciting had Boston been able to squeeze in another win, it was truly a historic week for the Duke product and the franchise.
