The Sports Community Reacts to Jayson Tatum’s 51-Point Performance

Jayson Tatum’s Game 7 was one for the record books. Tatum took over in the Boston Celtics’ 112-88 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

He scored 51 points on 17-of-28 shots, grabbed 13 boards, and gave out five assists. Tatum really got going in the third quarter, when he scored 17 points while the Sixers were only able to score 10.

Tatum’s game was even better than what the Celtics usually do in the playoffs. It’s the most points anyone has ever scored in a Game 7, beating Stephen Curry’s score of 50. Tatum is only the fourth player in the history of the Celtics playoffs to score at least 40 points and grab at least 10 rebounds in a game.

Paul Pierce, Sam Havlicek, and Larry Bird are the other three. Tatum is the only Celtics player to put up that line in a game that could decide the team’s fate, and he is also the only one to do it with 50 points or more.He is also just the fifth player in the history of the NBA playoffs to have at least 50 points, 10 boards, and five assists. The others are Jamal Murray, Russell Westbrook, Rick Barry, and Wilt Chamberlain.

In the Eastern Conference playoffs, the Celtics will play Jimmy Butler (in full “Playoff Jimmy” mode) and the Miami Heat.

On social media, sports stars from all over the world were amazed by Tatum.
