Jayson Tatum took responsibility for the painful loss to the Miami Heat in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

The superstar of the Boston Celtics had zero points in the first half, but exploded with 28 points in the second half.

However, the Celtics were defeated (109-112) and are now down 3-1 in the series.

“I take a lot of blame. I didn’t play like myself in the first half. We didn’t play well in the first half. We responded in the second half, but they were already in a rhythm,” Tatum said, via Jay King of The Athletic.

Tatum and Boston will play a must-win Game 5 on Friday.
