Jayson Tatum scored 18 points on 5-of-11 shooting (3-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-5 FTs) with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in Wednesday’s loss to the Heat.
After a big comeback on Monday the Celtics tried to make a similar comeback but ran out of gas to end their 16-game winning streak. Tatum has been a huge part of that and has cashed in with top 45-60 value (9/8 cat) this season while doing it. There should be some concern about the rookie wall and teams figuring out how to defend the Celtics as a whole, but owners should be very picky about any sell-high deal they come across. It has to be an improving top-75 player with upside to start the conversation.
