The comeback of Boston Celtics in recent games (five wins in the seven most recent meetings) has caused the Massachusetts franchise to reach a positive record for wins – losses for the first time in this 2021/22 season of the NBA.
The team led by Ime Udoka is currently in seventh position in the Eastern Conference at 9-8, turning around the worrying 2-5 of the opening games of the Regular Season. And he has done so, in addition, demonstrating an increasingly effective and dynamic offensive game, and less individualistic.
This has benefited, above all, the figure of Jayson tatum. The Celtics star is going through his prime this season. Although he was one of the great highlights of Boston’s bad times, right now he is the great pillar of the team.
Tatum has managed to chain three consecutive performances of more than 30 points (one of them with 37 and against the Los Angeles Lakers of LeBron James). In these three games he has averaged, in total, 34.6 points, 10.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 51.5% in field goals (TC).
Jayson Tatum over his last 3 games:
33 PTS – 8 REB – 5 AST – 50% FG
37 PTS – 11 REB – 3 STL – 50% FG
34 PTS – 9 REB – 5 AST – 54.5% FG pic.twitter.com/Cf5dSg7GW2

The backcourt benefit
Collectively getting better in attack has led to an improvement in Jayson Tatum’s game. Dennis Schröder and Marcus Smart, who are also at their best, are increasingly finding a Tatum in favorable positions to score. And best of all for these Celtics is that Jaylen Brown is very close to coming back from his injury.
