  • A picture can be worth 1,000 words. And in this case, a video lasting slightly more than 60 seconds can essentially be worth 51 points.

    Mother’s Day has produced some unforgettable memories in Boston sports over the years – Bobby Orr’s famous goal to clinch the 1970 Stanley Cup chief among them – and Bostonians can now add Jayson Tatum’s 51-point takeover to the list after the Celtics’ Game 7 victory over the longtime rival Philadelphia 76ers yesterday at theĀ  TD Garden. Tatum made 17-of-28 field goals attempts and 6-of-10 from 3-point distance, leading the Celtics to a 112-88 victory.

  • In the process, Tatum led the Celtics in points (51), rebounds (13) and assists (five) while also contributing two steals. He did not commit a single turnover.

    Along with the photo gallery below, here are all 17 of Tatum’s field on a variety of drives, leaners, floaters and bombs in a video that will require slightly more than 60 seconds of your time:
