Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics continue to be one of the most impressive teams in the NBA playoffs. After a victory in the opening round of the postseason, the Celtics now only got one win from advancing to the NBA Finals.
For a team that dropped out of the standings at the start of the 2021-22 NBA season, this was an incredible change. The Boston Celtics quickly became one of the most dominant teams in the league. Coach Ime Udoka has used his excellent depth and defensive ability against some of the top teams.
Although the Celtics have been sensational lately, it’s the play of young superstar Jayson Tatum that continues to amaze basketball fans every night. One of the “fans” includes Minnesota Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley.
Speaking on ESPN’s “Get Up,” Beverley continued to praise Tatum and the Celtics. He said Tatum’s mentality has reminded him of NBA legend Kobe Bryant and the Celtics looking dominant against the Miami Heat.
“First, I saw Jason Tatum and the postgame … He gave me a real vibe of Kobe Bryant. Like, the job isn’t done, you know, we see Kobe do it, you know Kob’s calm. That’s 82%, I think you have to bump that up, because they will play in Boston …
“I think it started with defense, attitude and swagger. He’s clearly the dominant side in the series right now.”
Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics are on the verge of an NBA Finals
Tatum and the Celtics have had an excellent road to the Eastern Conference Finals. He is now keen to close the series at home, but it won’t be easy, as the Miami Heat will do all in their power to send the series into Game 7.
The Boston defense continues to be incredible every night and looks as if it will be a serious contender for the NBA Finals.
If Boston can secure a win against the Heat tomorrow, they will face a series winner between the Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks.
