TD GARDEN — Jayson Tatum scored 26 points, shooting 3-of-6 from 3-point range in the Celtics 99-91 game two win over the Pacers. Here are his FULL postgame comments following his big performance.
What is it about the playoffs that gets your game go to the next level?
“Yeah, I just get really excited. It’s the best time of the year for basketball. It’s the most important time of the year so you got to try to be your best. Be aggressive because every game really counts.”
Re: Your play in the fourth quarter
“I think what was really important was JB’s (Jaylen Brown) pass. For him coming down the court, he could have easily shot the lay-up or tried to get fouled. That was a helluva pass by JB so I’m going to have to knock it down. When Kyrie (Irving) threw it late and I attacked the basket, Gordon (Hayward) made a great cut. We were just all on the same page towards the end. We were making great plays, sharing the ball and getting stops.”
What does a game like this mean for you and this team?
“It’s big. We knew game two was all about adjustments. We knew they were going to come out, play a lot better and they did. We were down 12 going into the fourth but in the playoffs; you don’t win quickly or lose quickly. It’s a long game and we needed everybody out there.
