Jayson Tatum put on a real show against the Heat (10-12) as he dropped 49 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, leading the Celtics (18-4) to the win (134-121).
Kendrick Perkins, who put Boston’s star atop of his MVP rankings, was rally impressed with what he saw from Tatum. He went as far as to say that the Celtics will go all the way this season if the 24-year-old small forward continues playing the way he does now.
“If Jayson Tatum continues to play at this level and with this Passion they will be riding on those Ugly ass Duck Boats through Beantown come late June!!!! I don’t see any team beating the Celtics in a 7 game series!!! Carry the hell on…” the former NBA champion tweeted.
