Jayson Tatum Joins Kobe Bryant, LeBron James With This Wild Playoff Stat

The 22-year-old joined some elite company Saturday

In case you haven’t noticed, Jayson Tatum is a stud.

The Boston Celtics star posted 25 points in Boston’s Game 3 victory over the Miami Heat on Saturday night.

It’s not the first time he’s put up big numbers lately, either.

Tatum now has 20-plus points in six consecutive games and 24 career contests before age 23. Only LeBron James (29) and the late Kobe Bryant (32) have tallied more, according to Celtics broadcaster Sean Grande.

Good stuff.

Tatum’s star power has been pivotal toward the Celtics’ postseason success both this year and in years past. And he’s got plenty more success to come.
