Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Signs max extension with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum signed a five-year contract extension worth up to $195 million with the Celtics on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The 22-year-old receives the rookie max extension after earning third-team All-NBA honors during the 2019-20 campaign. Tatum averaged 23.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.4 steals in 34.3 minutes last season and is poised to lead Boston for the foreseeable future.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Double-doubles in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum finished with 24 points (9-26 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 assists, seven rebounds, two steals and one block in 44 minutes during Sunday's 125-113 loss to the Heat.

Tatum filled out the box score but unfortunately didn't bring his scoring shoes, going just 9-of-26 from the floor as the Celtics were bundled out of the playoffs. His ability to contribute in other areas even when the shooting is not there puts him in good standing heading into next season. He has quickly ascended to superstar status and is likely to be a fringe first-round selection across most formats come draft season.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Leads C's in scoring in Game 5 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum generated 31 points (8-22 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 12-14 FT), 10 boards, six assists and one steal over 43 minutes in Friday's 121-108 Eastern Conference finals Game 5 win.

Tatum and Jaylen Brown led an impressive 41-point third quarter after a terrible first half. In fact, Tatum appeared to be in danger of repeating the scoreless first half that occurred in Game 4. Frankly, it was the Celtics defense led by Brown, Tatum and Daniel Theis that sparked the third quarter offensive burst. It took Boston half the game to figure out it should push the pace and drive to the basket. Tatum wasn't efficient, but in the second half he put his head down, bulled his way to bucket and drew lots of Miami fouls. On a few occasions, Tatum also dished to Brown for a few open three-pointers. The C's are still down 3-2 in the series. Tatum and his teammates will look to keep the positive momentum going in Game 6 on Sunday.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Makes impact at both ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum notched 28 points (10-22 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, three blocks and a steal in 39 minutes during Wednesday's Game 4 loss against the Heat.

Tatum was Boston's top scorer once again while pushing his streak of games with at least 20 points to six. He's also flashed on the defensive end in these playoffs, having notched three-block games on three occasions now. Tatum is averaging a robust 26.0 points and 10.5 rebounds per game in the series against the Heat despite the fact that the Celtics are just one loss away from elimination.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Near triple-double in Game 3 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum produced 25 points (9-20 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 14 rebounds, eight assists and two turnovers over 41 minutes in Saturday's Eastern Conference finals Game 3 win over the Heat.

Tatum and Jaylen Brown asserted themselves in a very aggressive manner throughout the Game 3 win, aided by the stabilizing return of Gordon Hayward. Boston ran fewer isolation plays for Tatum and focused more on ball movement and driving to the basket. The new approach led to Tatum dishing an impressive eight dimes, one shy of his career playoff high. The return of Hayward (ankle) also prevented Miami from throwing more double-teams at Tatum. In general, Boston applied more ball pressure on defense, which led to more easy transition buckets on the offensive end. A few Miami turnovers led to poster-worthy dunks for Tatum. The versatile forward must now wait until Wednesday for Game 4 versus Miami. The Heat still have a two games to one lead over Boston.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Stuffs stat sheet in Game 1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum produced 30 points (10-24 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 14 rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocks over 43 minutes in Tuesday's 117-114 Game 1 overtime loss to the Heat.

Tatum was by far Boston's best player on the floor, but he was unable to win it at the end of regulation or tie it at the end of overtime. At the end of the regulation, Tatum drained the clock and then settled for a very deep three that missed the mark. At the end of OT, he drove past Jimmy Butler but had his attempted dunk blocked by Bam Adebayo. To add insult to injury, Butler scored an old fashioned three-point play on Tatum to provide the winning points for Miami. Still, without huge efforts from Tatum and Marcus Smart, the Celtics would have lost badly. Tatum and his teammates will look to tie the series in Game 2 on Thursday.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Nabs double-double in Game 7 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum tallied 29 points (9-23 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 12 rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a block in 44 minutes of Friday's 92-87 win over the Raptors.

Tatum led all scorers in the decisive Game 7 win and finished the series with four consecutive double-doubles. He'll look to keep rolling against Miami in the Eastern Conference finals beginning Tuesday night.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Goes for 29 in Game 6 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum had 29 points (9-21 FG, 4-8 3PT, 7-10 FT), 14 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two blocks in 51 minutes in Wednesday's Game 6 double-overtime loss to Toronto.

Tatum narrowly missed a triple-double, but he struggled late in the game, going scoreless in the first overtime period and committing two costly turnovers late in the game -- the second of which led directly to a Norman Powell layup-plus-the-foul that put Toronto up by four points with 39 seconds to play. Tatum did respond by drilling jumpers on the next two Celtics possessions, but it was too little too late for Boston, which will now play a Game 7 on Friday night.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Goes for 18 points, 10 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum tallied 18 points (5-15 FG, 1-5 3PT, 7-8 FT), 10 rebounds and four assists in Monday's Game 5 win over Toronto.

While he didn't have the best shooting night, Tatum still managed a double-double, and he added a steal and a block on the defensive end. It was Tatum's fourth double-double of the postseason.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Double-doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum notched 24 points (10-18 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists in 43 minutes during Saturday's Game 4 loss against the Raptors.

Tatum has topped the 20-point mark in three of four games of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Raptors, and he has also grabbed at least eight boards in every contest during that stretch. Tatum should remain as Boston's main scoring threat and his value will get a sizable boost if he can also supplement those scoring efforts with other stats across the board. He is averaging 23.5 points, 9.0 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game during the current series against Toronto.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Tough shooting day in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum put up 15 points (5-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds, six assists and one steal in 39 minutes of Thursday's 104-103 Game 3 loss to Toronto.

Tatum tied his lowest scoring total in seven playoff games thus far but contributed plenty elsewhere on the floor. The 22-year-old is averaging 23.3 points per game in the series and will look to improve on that mark in Game 4 on Saturday.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Scores game-high 34 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum notched 34 points (8-17 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 14-14 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and one steal in 43 minutes during Tuesday's 102-99 Game 2 win over the Raptors.

Tatum had a strong performance on both ends of the court and finished with an efficient output scoring-wise, aided by 14 trips to the charity stripe. Tatum has been one of Boston's main scoring threats all season long but seems to have stepped his game up even more during the playoffs, as he has topped the 25-point mark in four of his six games thus far.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Scores 21 in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum had 21 points (9-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and two assists in Sunday's Game 1 win over Toronto.

It was a balanced effort for the Celtics, who jumped on Toronto early and led comfortably for nearly the entire game. Tatum got off to a relatively slow start but began to pick his spots later in the game, ultimately finishing with 21 points, which tied Marcus Smart for the team high.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Game 1 postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thursday's Game 1 between the Celtics and Raptors has been postponed, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

After the Bucks opted to boycott the first game of the day Wednesday, the rest of the games were postponed as well. That trend has bled into Thursday, as there will be no NBA basketball, though the players have voted to ultimately resume the playoffs.

August 24, 2020 03:52 PM
Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Grabs career-high 15 boards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum totaled 28 points (10-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-10 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal in 40 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 victory over the 76ers.

There is certainly no doubt about who's the alpha on this team right now with Tatum putting in another stellar performance. He's simply taken his game to another level this season, which has the Celtics firing on all cylinders. However, Tatum and his teammates will face a much tougher test against the Raptors in the second round of the playoffs, so he'll need to keep it up.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Struggles from field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum registered 15 points (6-19 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, four blocks and a steal in 32 minutes during Friday's 102-94 Game 3 win over the Sixers,

Tatum scored 30-plus points in the first two games of the series, even though he couldn't repeat those numbers due to his shooting woes, he still provided value defensively and on the glass. The Duke product averaged 23.4 points on 45 percent shooting during the regular season, so this dud should be considered an outlier, and he should see plenty of opportunities to bounce back in Game 4 on Sunday.

August 20, 2020 02:32 PM
Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Scores 33 points in Game 2 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum notched 33 points (12-20 FG, 8-12 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and five assists in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 128-101 Game 2 win over the 76ers.

While it's unsustainable for Tatum to knock down over 60 percent of his threes, his volume and production should remain fairly steady. Tatum has now scored 30-plus points in each of the first two games of this series while shooting 53.7 percent from the field and 58.8 percent from three, and he's scored at least 29 points in four straight contests dating back to seeding play.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Scores 32 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum exploded for 32 points (10-21 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 10-11 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in Monday's 109-101 Game 1 win over the Sixers.

Tatum led Boston in points, rebounds, blocks and minutes. His three blocks were a huge part of the pressure defense that often smothered Philadelphia. The 22-year-old All-Star was on the bench when the Sixers made their third quarter comeback and took a brief lead. But Tatum returned and, matched with some hot shooting by Jaylen Brown, turned the game back in Boston's favor. More may be expected of Tatum in Game 2 on Wednesday if Gordon Hayward has to miss the contest due to his fourth quarter ankle injury.

Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum will not play Thursday against Washington due to a left ankle sprain.

The Celtics are resting virtually all of their regulars for the final seeding game, so expect to see Tatum back on the floor when the first round of the playoffs begin next week.

August 12, 2020 07:08 PM
Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Stuffs stat line in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tatum provided 29 points (10-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a steal across 28 minutes in Tuesday's 122-107 win over the Grizzlies.

Tatum recorded 29 points for the second straight night, but his long-range shot was more accurate Tuesday. After going 4-of-12 versus Orlando, he drained four out of five attempts against Memphis. Throughout the bubble, Tatum has put some distance between himself and the rest of the roster as the most dependable source of production as they enter the playoffs. With Kemba Walker limited during the seeding games, Tatum's game has been much more consistent and reliable, especially in fantasy formats.
