So, without further adieu, let’s get started:
Boston Celtics prediction No. 1) Jayson Tatum will lead Cs in assists
When Jaylen Brown went down for the season with a left wrist injury that, ultimately, required surgery, many were under the impression that fellow All-Star, Jayson Tatum, would need to up his scoring output considerably in an effort to make up for the 24.7 points-per-game averages now gone alongside their injured wing.
Certainly the team will need to make up for these points somehow but, in our opinion, they should go about it in a way that doesn’t require Tatum shooting eight to ten more shots a night.
It’s too easy for a defense to gameplan around stopping Tatum from scoring.
In turn, we predict Tatum will be a major catalyst in accomplishing such a goal, which will have him leading the Boston Celtics in assists.
