The Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association (NBA) advanced to the Eastern Conference finals thanks to Jayson Tatum’s incredible performance, who scored 51 points, the most in Game 7 of the playoffs (PO).
Boston beat the Philadelphia 76ers 112-88 in game 7 of the 2nd round of the 2022-2023 season NBA East PO (4 wins in 7 games) held at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, USA on the 15th (hereinafter Korean time).
As a result, Boston succeeded in advancing to the conference finals for two consecutive seasons, and from the 18th, it will compete against the Miami Heat for the championship match.
Boston met Miami in the conference finals last season and beat them 4-3.

On this day, Tatum performed a ‘one-man show’, scoring 51 points, the most in the 7th PO game ever and the most in one PO game.
He also recorded 13 rebounds and 5 assists, leaving his name as the 5th player to pass all 50 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists in a PO game.
This is the fifth time Tatum has recorded more than 50 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in PO, the most in Boston history.
Boston, which led 55-52 until the first half, blocked the opponent’s score to 10 points with a strong defense in the third quarter and ran away with a whopping 33 points to 88-62.
Boston, which maintained the gap in the fourth quarter, showed a margin by letting Tatum rest on the bench with 3 minutes and 20 seconds left in the game.
Fans gave Tatum a standing ovation, shouting “Beat the (Miami) Heat!”
In Game 6, which Boston won 95-86, Tatum, who showed the worst shot hunting, played an active role that will remain in the history of the club.
Tatum said, “I was so nervous in Game 6,” and “I just focused on myself today. I enjoyed the game while laughing and joking around.”온라인카지노
To the question, “Have you ever seen a player who performed as overwhelmingly as Tatum today?” Philadelphia coach Doc Rivers, who was defeated, replied, “I’ve only seen it once here at TD Garden. It was LeBron James (LA Lakers).”
In Philadelphia, Tobias Harris struggled with 19 points, the most.
It was disappointing for Philadelphia that James Harden, who was supposed to be the main scorer, only scored 9 points.
