This was before the game. Should have told him to take it easy on my squad. Instead Tatum dropped 30 in the win. We’ll see them in March in #Sacramento. #Kings #Celtics #NBA instagram.com/p/ClcebImJZwK/…7:51 PM

Good day for the #Celtics to steal Tatum some rest vs. Washington on the front end of the B2B since others will inevitably rest on the back. Will be interesting to see what Boston looks like without him – 5:09 PM

Only 5 players have 100+ 4th quarter points this season on 50% shooting:
Steph Curry- 53%
Jayson Tatum- 51%
Giannis Antetokounmpo- 51%
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander- 50%
Bam Adebayo- 59% !!!
That type of efficiency in the 4th on high volume, while having a high mid-range diet is wild – 12:04 PM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
Sam Hauser (+21 Friday in 21 minutes, +142 for the season) regained the NBA lead in +/- earlier tonight, with Jayson Tatum moving into 4th.
(Nikola Jokic about to reclaim the league lead though in the late game) – 12:58 AM

36 for Kevin Durant at the Fieldhouse Friday night, enough to take the NBA scoring lead by a nose from Jayson Tatum. pic.twitter.com/AQVjE2H9cw12:29 AM

With that big finish to the 3rd quarter, Jayson Tatum (4,005) just joined Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker as the only 3 players to score 4,000 points at TD Garden.

16-0 #Celtics run to end 3Q. BOS 94, SAC 84. Tatum 30, White 16, Brown 15; Fox 20, Sabonis 14, Mitchell 13, Barnes 12. – 9:53 PM

Tatum hits a 3 off glass, blows a kiss and sends the Garden into a frenzy.
He has 30 through 3. #Celtics lead 94-84. – 9:53 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Go-ahead 3 for Payton Pritchard. Five straight points off the bench, and Luke Kornet throws down an alley-oop from Tatum on the next play. Huge boost from a pair of players that didn’t play in the 1st half. – 9:50 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Payton Pritchard and Luke Kornet both seeing their first minutes of the night.
Celtics are working around some foul trouble right as Brown, Smart and Tatum all have four fouls. – 9:44 PM

Mazzulla may want to challenge this charge on Tatum, but he won’t. #Celtics #Kings9:42 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
7 free throw attempts for Tatum. If he gets to 10, it will be his 7th double digit free throw attempt game of the season. He had 9 all last year – 9:32 PM

#kings making Tatum work even if the shot chart looks great for him. pic.twitter.com/qrX1nl3s8C9:31 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
This is where Boston just needs to go to Tatum on every trip. Everything else is a mess, so let your star get things under control. – 9:31 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
#Celtics scrap out the final basket and lead at half, 64-62.
1. No bench bigs again (0 min. for Kornet/Vonleh/Griffin)
2. Hauser -7, Brogdon +1, Grant +0
3. Tatum and the offense got complacent early in the 2nd and opened the door, defense collapsed and #Kings scored 40 in 2Q – 9:12 PM

Nice drop pass from Tatum to Horford for the layup. – 9:04 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Delay of game on Tatum dribbling the ball off the floor after a loose ball foul on Brown. #Kings about to pull from 16 down to within 1, and this is starting to mirror their rough games against Chicago a little bit. – 9:03 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
#Celtics finishers within 5 feet entering today:
Brown 63.6%

Weird year for Brodgon around the rim. – 8:52 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
#Kings rattle off 5/7 FG to start the second while Tatum tries some tough jumpers. 41-32 #Celtics with things getting a little dangerous. KZ Okpala in guarding Tatum and getting physical. – 8:46 PM

Brogdon grabs a steal and goes show time with 2 passes around the rim through Hauser to Tatum for the right-handed slam to fire the crowd up. One of the plays of the year. – 8:39 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Tatum yammed that one. Damn. – 8:39 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Horford blocks Murray and hits a 3 after a perfect shooting night on Wednesday. Murray’s 0/4, #kings are 2/11 and #Celtics lead 11-6 after a Tatum transition finish through Huerter’s foul. – 8:19 PM

More on this storyline

Bobby Manning: Jayson Tatum on biggest difference offensively: “A lot of randomness. Not a lot of playcalling, but trust. Just trusting that each guy’s going to make the right read …” If you make the right play, you’re going to get it back, he says, which was a struggle early last year. -via Twitter @RealBobManning / November 24, 2022
Tim Bontemps: Luka Doncic on playing against Jayson Tatum: “It’s always the best. He’s an amazing player. He’s top 10, in the MVP (conversation) … he’s shown he’s not a future face of the league, but he already is, & he’s an amazing player & it’s always fun to play with those kind of guys.” -via Twitter @TimBontemps / November 24, 2022
