Jayson Tatum's 30 not enough for Celtics in Game 1September 15, 2020 | 07:02 PM

Jayson Tatum hit 10-of-24 shots, 4-of-12 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws for 30 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocks in Tuesday's overtime 117-114 Game 1 loss to the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. Analysis: Tatum did everything he could tonight but it wasn't enough for Boston. He had an airball from downtown that left the Celtics up by just three points with 2:15 left in the fourth quarter, got called for a tough foul against Jimmy Butler, who ended up hitting the game-winner in Tatum's face on the play in overtime, and then fell down, got up and barely missed a game-tying 3-pointer at the overtime buzzer. Tatum did many more great things than bad ones tonight, but his failures happened to come at the most crucial times of a tight game. He's already possibly the best two-way player in the game and is only going to get better from here on in. And he's only 22 years old.
