Jayson Tatum and the best Game 7 ever

The 88-112 victory of the Boston Celtics In Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals over the Philadelphia 76ers carries the signature of Jayson Tatum.

Tatum realized 51 points shooting 17/28 from the field (6/10 from the arc) and 11/14 on the clock. He also added. 13 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 recoveries without losing a single ball in the 41 minutes he spent on the parquet.

It is about the best scoring performance in a game 7 in NBA Playoffs history. Beating the record of 50 points set by Stephen Curry only a few days ago, Tatum is the only one in NBA history to surpass 50 in a Game 7.

But not only that. For the first time in history, a player has scored 50 points in the Playoffs without missing a single ball. This is the game with the most individual points without a missed ball in NBA post-season history.

Finally Tatum became the second player in history, after Klay Thompson, to score more than 50 points with more than 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 baskets from beyond the arc in a Playoffs game.

Numbers describing a borderline-perfect performance by Tatum, who likely disputed the best individual performance ever in a game 7. Game 7 in which, by the way, the Celtics star boasts a personal record of 5 wins and one loss. Very similar to that of teammate Jaylen Brown, at 6-1.
