This NBA season has seen a major resurgence of the Boston Celtics.
They have worked their way up from the bottom of the Eastern Conference all the way to the second seed.
And now they are having a huge impact in the postseason.
The Celtics are doing better than any other team in the playoffs.
In fact, they are the only team in the playoffs that is still undefeated.
There are many factors leading to their domination but lead player Jayson Tatum is a massive part of their success.
Jayson Tatum has guarded 251 possessions in the Nets series, and has held opponents to 26 points on 13/35 shooting, with 15 forced TOVs, 3 blocks, and 7 steals.
He is also averaging 30/5/8,while shooting over 50% in 4th quarters. The Celtics are also up 3-0.

Tatum has guarded 251 possessions in the first round and has kept opponents down to just 26 points.
He has also forced 15 turnovers, created 3 blocks, and produced 7 steals.
Not only that, Tatum is an offensive unit too, going for 30 points, 5 rebounds, and 8 assists a game.
Tatum is the most important part of the Boston lineup right now and has the potential to take them to the Finals.
Beating the Nets is a huge deal but it’s clear that Boston has one goal: to win the NBA Finals.
A few months ago, that seemed like something of a pipe dream.
Lately, however, it seems possible.
When you look at the rest of the teams in the East, you see a bunch of squads who have been taken down by the Celtics throughout the season.
As for the West, Boston could beat their best team too – although it wouldn’t be easy.
If Boston plays at the level they’re at now against Brooklyn, there is every reason to believe they could win it all, especially if Tatum keeps it up.
