Tatum Dazzles, Knocks Down Game-Winner In Summer League Debut
It's only been one NBA Summer League game, but the Boston Celtics seem to have made a good decision by drafting forward Jayson Tatum.
In the C's opening night, 89-88 win over the Philadelphia 76ers, Tatum put up an impressive 21 points, seven rebounds, three assists and five steals.
On top of that solid stat line, the Duke product put in the game-winner, as he nailed a deep two from the top of the key with 5.7 seconds left on the clock.
Couple that big-time performance with a dominant showing from second-year forward Jaylen Brown, who led all scorers with 29 points and added 13 rebounds, and the future is looking bright in Boston.
It is obviously early on in the process and too early to make final assumptions for these young players, but night one of Boston's summer league season has to have all of Celtics Nation excited.
