Tatum Dropped 60 but Still Doesn’t Erase the Fact the Celtics are Having an Underwhelming Season

The Celtics overcame huge deficit against the San Antonio Spurs in last night contest, winning the game in overtime, 143-140. Jayson Tatum was a man on a mission last night, finishing with 60 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assist. It was one of the best performances in Celtics history, tying Larry Legend for most points in a game as a Celtic.

However, we cannot forget the season the Celtics have been having. This team is still going to most likely going to have to play one of the top three teams in Eastern Conference in the first round of the playoffs, if they even make it that far.

The Celtics are currently sitting at the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference and if the playoffs were to begin today, the Celtics would be facing the Milwaukee Bucks. However, with the inconsistent play all season long, that could easily change from now until May 16th when the season concludes. There is still a chance the Celtics don’t even get a playoff series because they might be participating in that one game play in game the NBA is introducing this playoff. If the Celtics lose that game, obviously, the team goes home for the off-season.

Final Thoughts

So, yeah, great moment in Celtic history happened last night and everyone all hyped for Tatum performance. However, doesn’t change the fact the Celtics have underachieved and caused much frustration with fans this season. The Celtics have eight more games remaining on their schedule. Those eight games are must win games, in my opinion, if they want to have any chance at playoff success this year.
