Jayson Tatum sets a Game 7 record with 51 points meanwhile the Boston Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers 112-88 on Sunday to advance to the Eastern Conference finals for the second straight year.

The Celtics big man Al Horford spoke to reporters after Boston’s victory: “I understood that in this series it wasn’t going to be so much my offense it was more defensively, that I had to take that challenge and defend him for us to have a chance.”
