In the first half, the Celtics just kept draining 3 pointers.

It was a good thing too because the Magic were hanging right in there, tied at the half.
As the game progressed, one of the Celtics hitting some of those 3’s took off in a big way. Jayson Tatum continued his hot start and set a record in the process.
Most points by a Celtic through the first 3 games of a season:— Taylor Snow (@taylorcsnow) October 23, 2022
1. Jayson Tatum ('22-23): 98 PTS (and counting)
2. Larry Bird ('84-85): 96 PTS
3. Larry Bird ('87-88): 91 PTS
Tatum ended up with 40 points, which added to his opening night 35 and his second night 29, puts him at (does math on fingers and toes) 104 through 3 games. Not too shabby.
