WATCH: Boston’s Jayson Tatum gets 26 points, career-high 16 boards vs. Philadelphia 76ers (12/1)

USA Today


Article Summary:

It looks as if Boston Celtics All-Star forward Jayson Tatum is trending in the direction of playing more like the top-15 player he has been in the past this season after Wednesday night’s defense-fueled 88-87 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. The St. Louis native is finding his shot again on one end and helping the Celtics lock down the perimeter, and the latest example came against the Sixers at TD Garden.

Boston will need something like this from the former Duke player on a night-to-night basis if the Celtics are to come out of their annual West Coast swing with anything like a winning record, so it is very promising to see Tatum come out focused and effective in the team’s last home game for a while.
