Jayson Tatum's shot was off for a few games, but it's back
Jayson Tatum's distance accuracy was missing-in-action for a while, but is seems to be back. In the last three games, he has hit 21-of-46 (45.6%) from the field, but more importantly, he was 11-of-21 (52.3%) from beyond the arc.
It was only a few games, but Jayson just wasn't hitting his shots. Against the Suns, he was 1-of-7 on field goals and 0-for-1 on treys. Versus Denver, he was 5-of-14 from the field and 1-of-4 beyond the arc.
Jayson Tatum shot 4-of-8 from beyond the arc, marking the first time in his NBA career he's made at least four 3-pointers in consecutive games
Tatum is shooting 11-for-21 from deep over his last 3 games (52.4% 3-PT)
Jayson's offensive game is still smooth but he has learned the hesitation dribble and has perfected creating space for himself. He really doesn't need a lot of room to get off a good shot. He often gets compared to Kobe Bryant, but I keep seeing a lot of Paul Pierce in him. The online sports betting comparisons are many.
Just like so many basketball stars, this kid just plain lives - and loves- the game. And he has since he was much younger. I see him having a great sophomore season and becoming a mainstay for the Celtics in the very near future.
