Jayson Tatum was the main reason the Boston Celtics got back in the game after the first half, during Friday’s night win against the Miami Heat.

Tatum climbed over LeBron James and became the only player in NBA history with five performances with at least 25+ points, 10+ rebounds, and 5+ assists before turning 23.

Tatum is the X-factor of the Celtics’ playoff run this postseason, averaging 25.8 points, 10.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists per contest.

The Celtics will try to force a Game 7 on Sunday.
