  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Just misses triple-double in win

    Tatum logged 22 points (7-20 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 12 rebounds and nine assists in 44 minutes during Wednesday's 93-80 victory over the Heat in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Tatum was less efficient as a shooter than usual, going just 7-for-20 from the field. However, he led all players with 12 rebounds and nine assists, just missing out on his first triple-double of the season. The star forward is averaging 23.8 points, 7.8 boards, 5.8 dimes and 2.0 three-pointers in the current series against the Heat and has Boston within a win of moving on to the NBA Finals.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Leads Celtics to crucial win

    Tatum logged 31 points (8-16 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 14-16 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 34 minutes during Monday's 102-82 victory over Miami in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Boston was in desperate need of a win Monday to avoid going down 3-1 in the series, and Tatum put the team on his back with a game-high 31 points. He did much of his damage from the charity stripe, going 14-for-16 from the line. Tatum also contributed eight boards, five assists and two blocks to round out a robust final line. This was his first performance of 30 or more points since he scored 46 against Milwaukee in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Officially cleared for Game 4

    Tatum (shoulder) will be available for Monday's Game 4 against Miami.

    Tatum exited Saturday's Game 3 with an apparent shoulder issue and was later diagnosed with a right cervical nerve impingement. He was initially listed as probable for Game 4, so all indications are that he'll be available for his full workload. The 24-year-old star will look to bounce back from Saturday's 10-point (3-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt), six-turnover effort as Boston aims to avoid falling behind 3-1 in the series.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Probable for Game 4

    Tatum is probable for Monday's Game 4 against the Heat due to right cervical nerve impingement.

    Tatum appeared to deal with a shoulder injury during Saturday's Game 3 against Miami, but he returned to the matchup. He's been diagnosed with a nerve issue in his neck, but it seems likely that he'll be able to play through the injury Monday. Over the first three games of the series, the 24-year-old has averaged 22.0 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 39.0 minutes per game.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Struggles massively in Game 3

    Tatum had 10 points (3-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and four assists in 41 minutes during Saturday's 109-103 loss to the Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Tatum can be one of the best scorers in the league but can also deliver woeful performances from time to time, and unfortunately for Boston, the latter showed up in a game where the Celtics could not complete a late comeback. The fact that Tatum needed 14 shots just to score 10 points speaks volumes as to how much he struggled on the offensive end of the court, but the star forward will aim to bounce back in Game 4 of the series Monday. Despite the woeful performance Saturday, Tatum is still averaging 26.9 points per game during the current playoff run.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Headed to locker room

    Tatum went to the locker room after appearing to suffer a right shoulder injury during the fourth quarter of Saturday's Game 3 against the Heat, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    Tatum remained on the floor for an extended period after being stripped by Victor Oladipo late in the fourth quarter. After a chaotic sequence, trainers and medical staff helped Tatum to his feet before he was able to make his way to the locker room under his own power. Payton Pritchard replaced the All-Star forward, but the Celtics will likely need Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart to step up in Tatum's absence if they hope to finish their second-half comeback.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Returns to Game 3

    Tatum (shoulder) has returned to Saturday's Game 3 against the Heat, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Tatum appeared to suffer a shoulder injury after being stripped by Victor Oladipo late in the fourth quarter, but the All-Star forward quickly returned to the contest after a brief stint in the locker room.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Scores team-high 27 points

    Tatum posted 27 points (8-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal over 32 minutes during Thursday's 127-102 victory over the Heat in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Tatum was efficient from the field en route to his sixth straight postseason game with at least 20 points, five rebounds and four assists. Across 13 playoff appearances, the All-Star forward has averaged 28.2 points, 6.0 assists, 5.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 40.8 minutes per game.

  • Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Struggles from deep in loss

    Tatum registered 29 points (10-21 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 7-9 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, one block and four steals over 44 minutes during Tuesday's 118-107 loss to Miami in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Tatum asserted himself early in Game 1 as Boston jumped out to a first-half lead, but his lack of efficiency from deep ultimately hindered Boston from maintaining the advantage. If Marcus Smart (foot) and Al Horford (COVID-19 protocols) remain sidelined for Game 2, the Celtics will need a superstar performance from Tatum to avoid a 2-0 hole.
