NBA: Boston Celtics at Memphis Grizzlies Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

TD GARDEN — Jayson Tatum dropped 26 points in the Boston Celtics 99-91 win over the Indiana Pacers in Game 2 of the series on Wednesday night. Finally, he was able to do so with Kyrie Irving on the floor.

Sierra Goodwill, Jeff Goodman and Jimmy Toscano have more on the importance of Tatum’s consistency throughout the NBA Playoffs.

“I get really excited,” Tatum said of the playoffs. “It’s the best time of the year for basketball and it’s the most important time of the year. You’ve got to try to be your best, be aggressive, because every game really counts.

“In the playoffs you don’t win quickly or lose quickly,” Tatum said. “It’s a long game. We needed everybody out there.”

“We were just all on the same page toward the end,” Tatum said. “We were making great plays, sharing the ball, getting stops.”
