Boston Celtics

Jayson Tatum continues to dominate as a scorer during his career in a Celtics uniform, in this case particularly from three-point range.

In a dominant 124-104 win on the road against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday, Tatum tallied 30 points and went 6-of-10 from beyond the arc. His strong shooting day allowed him to pass Ray Allen for third place on the Celtics’ all-time three-point leaders with 801.

While Tatum sits under his career average of 38.3 percent from three-point range, he is heating up in the month of March. Tatum is shooting 45.5 percent from beyond the arc to drive his season-best 34.2 points per game in March. Only Kyrie Irving is averaging more, with 37.8 points per game this month in five fewer games.

Tatum continues to make his mark as the next generation of great Boston scorers. His abilities from the perimeter are a major factor in Boston’s second-half surge and an 8-1 start to the month of March.

The Celtics’ Western Conference road trip continues on Monday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder. You can get the call of the game on 105.7 WROR, then joined in progress on 98.5 The Sports Hub after the conclusion of the Bruins’ game against the Canadiens.

Recapping the Celtics' trio of moves at the 2022 NBA trade deadline

  • Danny Ainge had overseen almost two decades worth of trade deadlines as the Celtics’ president of basketball operations. Fans may have been unsure of what to expect as Brad Stevens manned the phones for the first time since being promoted to Ainge’s old job back in June.

    What ensued was one of the wildest trade deadlines in recent memory in Boston sports. In total, the Celtics traded away seven players and a first-round pick, acquired two players and a second-round pick, and added a future first-round pick swap. Here’s a quick rundown of each of the Celtics’ three deals done throughout the day…

    The Celtics’ first move of the day wasn’t a major one, but it did help the team get under the luxury tax. Boston acquired P.J. Dozier and Bol Bol just a few weeks ago in a three team deal that saw them send forward Juancho Hernangomez and cash considerations to San Antonio.

    Spurs get:

    — G/F Josh Richardson

    (Full trade details)

    A few hours later, the Celtics made their first player acquisition of the day, adding starting Spurs shooting guard Derrick White. White is expected to fill a similar role in Boston. His defensive prowess will give the Celtics a lockdown backcourt, with White playing next to Marcus Smart. Meanwhile, Richardson was part of the bench unit while Langford was struggling to find minutes in the rotation. This deal also includes a 2028 first-round pick swap, with Boston’s pick top-1 protected.
