Despite being under the pressure of facing elimination, Jayson Tatum successfully carried the Boston Celtics to a Game 4 victory. After extending the series, Boston and the Miami Heat will battle in Game 5 back in the Garden.
The Celtics now have the opportunity to push it to a Game 6 given that they'll have a home-court advantage in the matchup.
Tatum's Game 4 redemption lit a fire in many fans who can't help but praise JT for his incredible comeback. In Game 3, Tatum shot a disappointing 33.3% from the field and 14.2% from long distance.
This time around, Jayson made up for it by shooting 55% from 3-point land and 63% overall. Boston fans are now rubbing it in on haters on social media.
