“There’s nothing like playing at home in front of the home crowd,” said All-NBA swingman Jayson Tatum after dropping a historic, 50-point game on the Brooklyn Nets to carry his team to a crucial Game 3 win over the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the 2021 NBA Playoffs.

And it was quite evident in his lethal, almost methodical attack that he had risen to some other level he seems able to unlock in critical moments, putting up 6 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals and a block to go with his career playoff-high. Now with his fourth 50-point game of the season — something never before accomplished by a Celtic — the St. Louis native had plenty to talk about after the game.

Speaking to the press while still basking in the glow of a hard-earned win, Tatum answered questions about how he was feeling about his impressive outing, how he can seemingly turn on this killer attack mode on so often, and the rest of the series to come among other topics.
