The Celtics made sure not to make the same mistake twice Thursday, and Jayson Tatum also made sure to send out a public message, too.
Boston closed out its first-round series against the Hawks with a Game 6 win. The C’s had a chance to close out the series in Game 5 at TD Garden on Tuesday, but multiple miscues hurt the team. The loss had big effects on State Farm Arena.
Janet Jackson had two concert dates at the venue scheduled on Wednesday and Thursday. Atlanta’s win Tuesday meant Game 6 was played Thursday, and the concert date was pushed to Friday.
It appears the legendary artist forgave Tatum and the Celtics for their misdeed when her Twitter account “liked” the video of the Boston star apologizing in his postgame interview.
Thankfully for Celtics fans and Jackson fans, the situation is all water under the bridge. Boston moves on to play the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference semifinals Monday, and Jackson moves on to the rest of her “Together Again” tour that runs throughout the summer.
