Must C’s: Jayson Tatum is dancing in Dallas

No. More. Long. Two’s.

The Globetrotters are in Big D.

Much has been made of Jayson Tatum’s improved shot selection this season. He’s de-Mamba’d his game and cut down on his mid-range takes and opted to attack the rim more and shoot more threes.

In Dallas tonight, watch him take former Celtic Dwight Powell off the dribble, attack off the dribble, opt out of a contested two, and hit a corner three. It’s the perfect microcosm of Tatum’s changing mindset and decision-making. At the end of the third quarter, Tatum has 18 points on 8-of-17 shooting and Boston leads 76-73.
