Jayson Tatum finished Saturday’s win with 20 points, five rebounds and two triples on 6-of-9 shooting.
Tatum did his damage in 31 minutes on a night where several Celtics had trouble generating offense. The rookie continues to impress, though his lack of defensive stats underscores our long-term concerns about his fantasy potential. That will come with time, hopefully, and the fact that Boston is committed to giving Tatum big minutes means he’s firmly on the standard league radar, peripheral stats or not.
