There are many stories from the Celtics series-clinching win last over the Milwaukee Bucks, and rookie Jayson Tatum was one of them.

With the departure of Jaylen Brown from the game with a strained hamstring, Jayson took it on himself to pick up some of the slack. He had 20 points for the game on 7-of-17 from the field and 1-of-3 from beyond the arc.

He added six rebounds, five assists and one block. His lone block and single 3-pointer came in the same sequence, and they were energizing. His clean block of Shabazz Muhammad came after a Marcus Morris three-pointer.

He rushed down court after the block - found himself open for a three-point shot - didn't hesitate - Swish. Nice plays for a rookie in his very first playoff Game Seven.
