Jayson Tatum scores 60 in epic comeback over Spurs
May 1, 2021
It’s been an extended, eventful 12 months for Jayson Tatum. There was a bout with COVID-19, and Tatum, a wholesome, 23-year-old celebrity athlete, wanted an inhaler earlier than video games.
However Tatum went off for 60 factors in Friday’s insane 143-140 time beyond regulation win over the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs led by as a lot as 32 factors within the first half, however Tatum and the Celtics managed to take it to time beyond regulation with a livid second-half rally.
Tatum scored 31 of his 60 within the fourth and time beyond regulation. His 60 matched a franchise document – and it’s a fairly historic franchise, should you didn’t know – set by some man named Larry Chicken in opposition to the Hawks in 1985.
Tatum, 23 years and 58 days outdated, turned the second-youngest participant to ever hit 60 in a sport, edging out one other legend, Jerry West (23 years, 234 days), who was the youngest to ever do it earlier than Devin Booker’s 70-point effort at age 20 in 2017.
