Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics fell to Miami in Game 3.
Tatum, perhaps echoing his college coach the recently retired Mike Krzyzewski who used the term on a semi-regular basis, called the loss “unacceptable.”
And for Tatum, it surely must be: he scored just 10 points, shooting 3-14 overall and 1-7 on threes.
He also had six turnovers.
Boston made a solid comeback but before that happened, Miami was just killing them. And even after they did come back to cut the lead to one with 2:40 left, Miami outscored them 16-11 in the closing minutes
Tatum’s ascent to the very top of the sport is looking a bit more complicated, and it’s being complicated by Miami’s superb defense.
One hopes Boston can get it together in Game 4.
