Jayson Tatum Shakes Off Frustration to Lead Celtics to Game 7 Victory in Philadelphia

In a must-win Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series against the Philadelphia 76ers, the Boston Celtics were looking for a hero to step up and save the day. That hero was emerging star Jayson Tatum. Despite a frustrating 1-for-13 shooting slump through the first three quarters, Tatum still managed to find a way to outscore the Sixers by himself in the fourth quarter and lead Boston to victory with 16 points (4-for-8 from the field). As co-star Jaylen Brown said, "They can't guard you" and it rang true, as Tatum lit up the court with three clutch 3-pointers in the end.

"In transparency, s--- was frustrating," Tatum said after the game. "You want to win so bad. You want to play so well. And shots aren't falling, things just aren't necessarily going your way. And you want it so bad." His poise and resilience paid off and now the Celtics are heading home for a Game 7 on Sunday. "Hopefully, that's a one-time thing," Tatum said. "Hopefully, I start off better, things like that. But if this is what it takes for us to win, I'll go for whatever. Sunday is obviously a big game, Game 7, and I'm excited to go back and kinda like redeem ourselves in front of our home crowd." Will Tatum and the Celtics be able to come through in the clutch in a decisive Game 7 or will the Sixers have the last laugh? Tune in on Sunday to find out!
