Tatum and Brown make Celtics history
On a record breaking night, JT also tied Larry Bird's single-season record for the most 30-point games by a Celtic with his 39th such game this year.

Tatum is seeking to become the first Celtic to ever average 30 points per game for the entire season and with 9 games left, he sits at 30.1 ppg. Barring injury, Jayson should be able to set both of these records and with him just turning 25 years old, there should be more records to come in the future.
