Jayson Tatum's 51 vs. Sixers sends Celtics back to ECF


That was an impressive performance by Jayson Tatum

in Game 3 of the 2022 NBA playoffs. Tatum scored 51 points, including 32 in the second half, to lead the Boston Celtics to a 125-118 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Tatum's performance was one for the record books, as he became the youngest player in Celtics history to score 50 points in a playoff game. He also joined a select group of NBA players who have scored 50 points or more in a playoff game before turning 25 years old, including Michael Jordan, LeBron James, and Kobe Bryant.
