By now it is clear that the postseason fate of the Boston Celtics is tied in large part to the abilities of star forward Jayson Tatum. His leap to a borderline Most Valuable Player-level talent has raised the ceiling of the Celtics to a contender, so long as the St. Louis native plays up to his potential.

Yet, even in contests where it counts such as Game 1 in Boston’s first-round playoff series with the Brooklyn Nets, it took Tatum a bit longer than one would hope given the stakes to get his game going. Could the Duke product have a cold spell that might end the Celtics’ season early?

Three-time NBA champion with the Chicago Bulls BJ Armstrong is a believer in what he has seen from Tatum so far, and said as much in a recent interview on the “Rich Eisen” show.

Check out the video embedded above to hear what the Bulls champion has to say about Boston’s All-Star swingman against the Nets.
