Jayson Tatum hit 11-of-26 shots, 1-of-6 3-pointers and 6-of-8 free throws for 29 points, eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 35 minutes of Wednesday's ugly 102-94 loss to the Cavaliers.
The Cavs had lost 11 straight games coming in, were without their starting point guard, Darius Garland, and had nothing to play for. While the Celtics were supposedly 'fighting' to avoid a play-in scenario. The Celtics shot just 35 percent from the floor and are now locked into a play-in scenario, currently sitting as the No. 7 seed with no chance to get to No. 6. Tonight's game was tough to watch and only Evan Fournier (6-of-20, 15 points), Payton Pritchard (15 points) and Tristan Thompson (10 points) joined Tatum in double-digit scoring. If the Celtics make it through the play-in tourney without Jaylen Brown it should be considered a major victory at this point. May 12 10:12 pm (EST)
