How did Boston’s Jayson Tatum survive his worst slump ever in Game 6 vs. the 76ers?

Star Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum showed up when it mattered most and scored 12 of the Celtics’ last 14 points in the final frame of the Celtics’ critical Game 6 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in their 2023 Eastern Conference semifinals series.

The St. Louis native started the game just 1-14 over the tilt’s first three quarters and ended up outscoring the entire Sixers team in the final quarter of the big win, leading Boston to a 95-86 victory. “I kept looking at the time,” Tatum said to the media after the contest. “I’ve got time, I’ve got time to make a difference. I believed that the whole time.”
