Photo by Stephen Gosling/NBAE via Celtics remember how to play basketball as Tatum joins Bird as only Celtics with 50-10-5 stat lines. The Boston Celtics reminded why the most optimistic of Green Teamers still believe in this team with a 116-87 afternoon win over the Washington Wizards powered by Jayson Tatum’s explosion of 51 points to go with 10 rebounds and 7 assists with a career-high nine 3-pointers. In a season with some really low lows, this was a very welcome sight. Much was made of Jayson Tatum’s offensive shooting struggles both recently and over the...

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Are the Celtics really as bad as their sub-.500 record? The Celtics are tied for first in the league with twelve losses by five or fewer points.
