Jayson Tatum Sets Record Straight About Haircut Before Celtics-Trail Blazers


Aug 2, 2020

Jayson Tatum’s weekend inside the NBA’s Orlando bubble was a tale of two hairstyles.

Tatum sported much longer hair than we’re used to seeing from the young swingman in the Celtics’ first seeding game Friday. The curly locks didn’t do Tatum any favors against the Milwaukee Bucks, however, as he only logged five points on shooting a dreadful 2-for-18 shooting clip in Boston’s narrow loss.

The 2020 All-Star went back to his usual cut ahead of the Celtics’ matchup against the Trail Blazers, and much better on-court results followed. Tatum dropped a game-high 34 points as Boston fended off a second-half surge by Portland to secure its first win at Walt Disney World.

So, did Tatum’s lousy performance against the Bucks motivate him to meet with a barber? Not exactly.

NBA fans on Twitter were convinced the haircut played a part in Tatum bouncing back. The third-year pro isn’t buying into that theory, however.

Tatum and C’s return to action Tuesday night against the Miami Heat.
