Its Jayson Tatum’s time. At home with a chance to send the C’s to The Finals. This is more of a commencement tonight than a basketball game. He’s got that Mamba mentality and even hit the media with the “Job’s not finished” line. I mean what would Kobe do in a closeout of the #1 seed in the Staples Center back in the day? Outright burial all around. Tatum is going to be all over the floor tonight so we’re taking his statline only tonight. One thing to root for, and that the ball in his hands.
Jayson Tatum o30.5 points (+182), 8+ Rebounds (+146), 6+ Assists (+104) Eclipsed the points at home in Game 5, and his FGA have increased steadily over the last 4. Expect him to take over 20 shots tonight, where he has scored 29+ in 4/L5 when doing so.
He’s grabbed 8+ boards in 3 games in this series alone and is averaging 6 per game in the playoffs. The way these games have gone, there will be plenty of opportunities with the low FG % going on.
We're going with 6+ Assists as he’s averaging 5 per game in this series, and will have the ball in his hands an awful lot. Maybe we’ll get some rebounds right into transition assists which would help make this one sweat free!
I think this is Jayson Tatum’s moment at home today. I avoided Three’s in the play just because I didn’t want to add an extra leg, but go nuts. Im also sprinkling a little pixie dust on a triple double at +3100 currently on FD.
