What are Boston Celtics’ star forward Jayson Tatum’s highest-scoring regular season games?

Before we can truly say that superstar Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum has truly hit his prime years as a star player in the NBA, the St. Louis native has already logged the most 50-point games in the history of the storied franchise with five, surpassing the only other player to have multiple 50-burgers in all of Boston’s hallowed history, Larry Bird (four in total).

Apart from Tatum and Bird, teammate Jaylen Brown has a single 50-piece to his name, as do Isaiah Thomas, Paul Pierce, Kevin McHale, and Sam Jones. That’s it — that’s the full list, with the Duke alum already having equaled all the other 50-point games in Celtics history in total apart from Larry Legend’s.

Let’s take a look at Tatum’s updated list of highest-scoring games as of January, 2023.
