Boston Celtics needed Larry Bird to come when the Celtics were down by as many as 32 points to the San Antonio Spurs. At halftime, Jayson Tatum, the new young star took it to himself and lead the team to the best comeback by setting a record for the team for most game points. Tatum and Bird not being compared as they both are totally different players, but getting 60 points for the team in the win over Spurs by 143-140 made the Celtics fan very happy and smiling.
In the 45 playing minutes, Tatum went from the field 20 of 37 and was shooting 3-ball from beyond the stripe (3-point) and contributed eight rebounds for the team. He did not do it all alone definitely. But, with various matches of 50+ points in this season, it is clear that despite everything that hit him and the team, the comeback is epic and destiny is great.
