Jayson Tatum Pours in 51 Points as Celtics Earn Much-Needed Win

The Boston Celtics have been mediocre over the past two seasons, despite having a superstar duo in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. With as much talent as the team has, it’s somewhat puzzling how they’ve been exactly .500 this season and last.

Entering Sunday’s game against the Washington Wizards, Boston was on a two-game losing streak and sitting one game below .500 in the 2021-22 campaign. In need of a win to get things back on track, Tatum rose to the occasion. He scored 31 points in the first half alone, then finished with 51 total points in a huge win.

The upcoming schedule for the Celtics is fairly manageable. While they’ll go up against some teams that are currently in the playoff picture, there’s a handful of contests in their next ten against teams they should be heavy favorites against.

If Boston is going to become a real threat and feel comfortable making a splash at the deadline, the front office might need to see a string of wins over the next week or two. If that’s going to happen, the Celtics will need more huge performances from their superstar forward in Tatum.
