Jayson Tatum was unstoppable vs the Washington Wizards and helped the Boston Celtics clinch their playoff spot.

Tatum dropped 50 points (14/31 shooting, 5/11 from beyond the arc) and led the Celtics past the Wizards in the play-in opener (100-118).

Thanks to Tatum’s amazing performance, the Celtics secured the seventh place in the standings and will now play the Brooklyn Nets in the first round. Game 1 is on Saturday at Barclays Center.

On the other hand, the Wizards will have a second chance to reach the postseason. They will face the Indiana Pacers on Thursday. The winner will go on to face the top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers, whereas the loser will be eliminated.
