In the most important game of the season, Boston Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum will show the basketball world that he is on his way to being one of the best players in the league.
No matter the sport Game 7 is a word fans both fear and adore. The Boston Celtics are headed home to face the Cleveland Cavaliers in what should be a spectacular game.
The C’s have gotten production from their rookie Jayson Tatum throughout the season, and on Sunday, Tatum will be the star.
Tatum has been an absolute stud for the Celtics. In his debut season he averaged 13.9 points, and 5 rebounds a game which isn’t too shabby, but in the playoffs Tatum has been otherworldly. He is averaging 18.2 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

Tatum is such a great shooter. He was one of the best 3 point shooters in the league in the regular season. He needs to make shots outside the paint, but I think the most important thing for Tatum on Sunday will be getting to the rim.
The Celtics have had difficulty making their shots in the last two games. The C’s improved on Friday night shooting over 50% from the field but still missed open shots. If Tatum and the C’s can drive to the rim and get high-quality shots, the C’s will easily win.
Jayson Tatum has had a phenomenal rookie season and if he can lead the Celtics to the NBA Finals it would be the finishing touch on his masterpiece of a year.
