Article Summary:

Boston shook off a cold start and took Game 3 on Friday night, 125-119, on a playoff career-high 50 points from Jayson Tatum to make it a 2-1 series. “Trying to protect home court and get a win at all costs. Sometimes, nights like these are needed.”

At 23, Tatum is the third-youngest player to score 50 points in a playoff game in NBA history. Boston started hitting shots and closed the first quarter on a 10-0 run, taking a 33-32 lead heading into the second thanks to 13 points from Tatum and 11 points from Smart in the opening frame. Tatum continued to attack the Brooklyn defense – and Irving – and scored 10 points in the final frame, including that pullup over Durant with 40.8 seconds left.
