Boston Celtics

After his last second game winning three-pointer to lift the Celtics over the 76ers on Saturday night on national TV, Marc Bertrand is saying for certain that Jayson Tatum is a clutch player.

  • Beetle makes the case for Tatum being clutch...

    “Can I give you a stat about Jayson Tatum that puts him up there in the all-time department?”

    “Jayson Tatum is the only player in NBA history to shoot at least 50% a game tying or go-ahead shots with less than 24 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter among players with at least 25 such attempts.

    “That means the guys who are fed the ball at the end of games in the course of their career. He is 13 of 26 on those shots. He is 15 of 29 when you include the playoffs.”
