Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics fell to the Philadelphia 76ers in overtime in Game 4, 116-115.

Tatum had an awful first half, scoring just two points, hitting 1-9 and 0-3 on three pointers.

He bounced back in the second to finish with 24 points on 9-20 from the floor. Tatum did manage one three in the second half but it was a subpar performance and it was his second in a row.

The good news for Boston is that the Celtics won Game 3 with a terrible game from Tatum and nearly won with a less-than-stellar game in Game 4.

As he learned to say at Duke: next play.
