Jayson Tatum paced the Celtics with 30 points in a Game 1 defeat to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, adding in 14 boards, five assists, three steals and two blocks in the all-around effort.
Tatum stuffed the stat sheet in Game 1, nearly guiding the Celtics to the win at the end of regulation. He took three-point jumpers at the end of regulation and overtime, both of which rimmed out, and Jimmy Butler's Heat squad came away with the hard-fought victory. Tatum shot the ball 24 times (10-for-24 FG) and made four threes (4-for-12 3PT) in 43 minutes of action. The Celtics will look to even up the series on Thursday.
