With the Celtics’ Game 5 win over the Heat, Jayson Tatum has recorded more playoff wins (38) than the Philadelphia 76ers have in the last 15 years (37)
Despite being only 24-years-old, Jayson Tatum is currently one of the most elite stars in the entire association. In only 5 seasons in the league, JT has racked up a pretty impressive resume – 3 All-Stars and 2 All-NBA teams.
As he should be 👏🏽👏🏽

Despite being so young, Tatum has managed to find success in the postseason as well. Since setting foot in the NBA, the 6-foot-8 forward has qualified for the playoffs every time, making it to the ECF twice already.

Putting up a solid 22.8 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 4.1 assists (26.9/6.3/6 in these playoffs) in the postseason, Jayson manages to elevate his game when it matters the most.
Tatum is now merely one win away from leading the Cs to their first-ever NBA Finals appearance since the 2010 season. Ime Udoka’s boys will hope to finish off the ECF series at the TD Garden on Friday.
