It was the 650th 3-pointer of his career

by

BOSTON — Jayson Tatum went in to Wednesday’s game against the Nets on Wednesday close to surpassing Larry Bird in the Boston Celtics history books.

And despite Boston’s loss to Brooklyn at TD Garden, he did so in the second quarter.

On an assist from Dennis Schröder with just under eight minutes on the clock, Tatum made the 650th of his five-year career.

It helped him assume No. 5 on the franchise’s list of 3-point leaders. Tatum now trails Marcus Smart at No. 4.

It was his only 3-pointer of the game, though, and Tatum was 1-for-9 from beyond the arc.
