Jayson Tatum made another stellar performance and led the Boston Celtics to the 128-101 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Tatum had a team-high 33 points (12/20 shooting, 8/12 from beyond the arc) and set a new franchise record.

Tatum became the youngest Boston Celtics player to score 30 points in consecutive playoff games, surpassing Larry Bird, who did so in three straight games from April 12-22, 1981, via ESPN.

The versatile forward scored 32 points in Game 1. He followed that up with 33 points in Game 2.

Boston and Tatum lead the series 2-0. Game 3 will take place on Friday.
