The Celtics managed the second consecutive victory over the Heat in the NBA playoffs, and Jayson Tatum did not hide his satisfaction with the squad
Jayson Tatum believes in the potential turnaround of Celtics up from heat. During the night of last Thursday, the 25th, Boston did not give chances to Miami at the TD Garden and left with a victory of 110 to 97. Thus, the aggregate score saw the difference from 3 to 0 fall to 3 to 2 and give even more breath and confidence for the alviverde team to seek an unprecedented reassembly in the NBA.
In an interview still on the court at TD Garden, Tatum did not hide his satisfaction in playing alongside a group of players like those of the Celtics. The ace, who scored 21 points and provided 11 assists in the match, wants to qualify for the NBA finals, but he also makes a point of praising the dedication of his teammates, regardless of the result that is to come for Boston against the Heat.
“For some strange reason, even in the last year, we always seem to make things a little harder on ourselves. But what I do know is that you can see the true character of a person, of a team, when things aren’t going well, and our ability to come together, figure things out when it’s not necessarily good for us. It’s unlike any team I’ve been on this year and last year, just the core group of guys being able to respond.”stated Tatum.
Considered one of the main names of the new generation of the NBA, the athlete knows that the Celtics will need to maintain the intensity if they want to achieve an unprecedented feat in the playoffs. As such, Jayson Tatum finds himself even more confident when he looks to the side and sees the posture of his teammates. According to him, the attitude of keeping your head up and fighting for victories makes Boston an even tougher rival for the Heat.
“I think it’s just a testament to our unity, obviously how much we want this, and we have a locker room full of determined, tough guys that motivate us. We look left and right and we believe in it. We believe that the guy beside us will do whatever it takes and go down fighting if it doesn’t work out.“, he concluded. It is worth remembering that the two teams face each other this Saturday, 27, at 9:30 pm (Brasília time), at the Kaseya Center.
