Tatum and his squad fought hard – and well – on Monday night and, in the end, his Celtics won 102-82 to even the Eastern Conference Finals, 2-2.
The entire team played very well but Tatum was of particular interest because he scored a team-high 31 points.

Monday night’s victory means that Tatum is scoring an average of 32.6 points per game after a loss in these playoffs.
And in those games, the Celtics are now 5-0.
Tatum and his Celtics are learning how to bounce back and that’s one of their biggest strengths.
Boston Bounces Back
The Miami Heat pulled off a surprise win in Game 3, winning 109-103 and taking a 2-1 lead.
They achieved this victory in Boston, which hurt the Celtics in more ways than one and made fans of the team very nervous.
However, Boston was able to recover and secure a huge win, keeping the series alive.
As usual, Tatum was in fine form all over the floor, leading his team and putting up yet another incredible score for his team.
The challenge ahead for the Celtics is large because the team is moving back to Miami to continue the series.
Both the Heat and Celtics have raucous hometown crowds and the Heat have two games at home while the Celtics have only one left.
That means that the next few games will be very intense as both teams attempt to take out the other and make the Finals.
The chances of the Celtics winning the next two games are slim although not impossible.
That means they may need to achieve another bounce-back in the near future.
Do they have it in them?
