Stop us if you heard this before, but it seems Jayson Tatum continues to write his name in the Boston Celtics’ history books with every game he plays.

The young wing set a new career-high in playoff scoring, dropping 34 points on the Toronto Raptors in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinals.

The performance put Tatum at second all-time in franchise history, tied with teammate Jaylen Brown, for most points by a 22-year-old in Celtics playoff history, per Elias Sports Bureau.

Legendary Boston player, coach and now broadcaster, Tommy Heinsohn, currently holds the record at 37 points.

Based on how Tatum’s been playing all season, Heinsohn’s record may not belong to him much longer.
