Watch Celtics Rookie Jayson Tatum Nail Incredibly Tough Fadeaway Shot

1,231

Boston Celtics fans must be happy with what they’ve seen from rookie forward Jayson Tatum during NBA summer league action in Utah this week.

The No. 3 pick in the 2017 draft hit the game-winner in the summer league opener, poured in 23 points on Wednesday night and provided another amazing highlight Thursday night against the Utah Jazz.

Wow, that’s impressive. It reminds us a lot of how Celtics legend Paul Pierce drained tough fadeaway shots for nearly 20 years.

The additions of Tatum and free-agent star Gordon Hayward should make the Celtics’ offense much more dynamic next season.
