BOSTON – – As Jayson Tatum associated on another 3-pointer halfway through the second from last quarter Sunday – – on the way to outscoring the Philadelphia 76ers in the period without help from anyone else – – he went to a rambunctious Boston group and let out a soothing holler.
“This is my s- – – ,” he said.
Tatum scored 51 focuses, the most in a Game 7 in NBA history, to lead the Celtics to a 112-88 triumph to progress toward the Eastern Meeting finals. Tatum broke the record set fourteen days prior by Stephen Curry, who scored 50 focuses in Game 7 of the Brilliant Express Heroes' first-round series against the Sacramento Rulers.
Tatum went 17-of-28 from the field and added 13 bounce back and five helps, turning into the fifth player in NBA history with no less than 50-10-5 in a season finisher game.
“It's a film,” Celtics watch Marcus Shrewd said. “It's a major film. Having the option to simply sit back, eat your popcorn and watch.”
In the wake of battling through one of the most terrible shooting evenings of his vocation in Game 6, Tatum answered with perhaps of the best exhibition in establishment history. He scored or helped on 62 focuses in Game 7, surpassing the Sixers' star team of Joel Embiid (15 focuses) and James Solidify (nine focuses), who joined to score or help for 44 places.
