Jayson Tatum dropped 23 points (6-of-11 FG, 2-of-5 3PT, 9-for-9 FT) on Tuesday in a 112-106 loss to the Heat, adding seven rebounds and a block in 33 minutes of play.
Tatum has been all over the map in Orlando. Going into the evening, Tatum had had a phenomenal game and a very forgettable one in the Celtics' two seeding games. On Tuesday, he had a rather average evening, so he's covered all the bases thus far. The Celtics were rather average as a team, also, so Tatum will undoubtedly need to be better for them to become a threat for an NBA Finals run. He's still growing (Tatum is still just 22) and there's obvious plenty of reason for excitement in terms of his career projections and fantasy outlook moving forward.
