Jayson Tatum shot 9-of-20 from the field and 5-of-5 from the foul line in Saturday’s win over the Heat, posting a line of 25 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes.
Tatum has now scored 20 points or more in six straight playoff games, and this was the 24th postseason game in his career in which he’s hit that mark. Only two other players in NBA history have more 20-point playoff games to their credit before turning 23 years old: the late Kobe Bryant (32), and LeBron James (29). With Saturday’s effort Tatum moved into third on that list, breaking a tie with Derrick Rose. Sep 19 11:25 pm (EST)
