Celtics’ Brad Stevens Discusses Impact of Jayson Tatum

The Boston Celtics have been impressed with the play of rookie forward Jayson Tatum as the team continues to prove it’s an Eastern Conference powerhouse.

Celtics’ head coach Brad Stevens talked about how important and impressive the rookie’s play has been during an appearance on CBS Boston’s 98.5 “The Sports Hub’s Zolak & Bertrand.

“He’s doing a great job for us of just making the right basketball play, and that’s really all we want to ask of him right now,” Stevens said.

“Obviously, there’s gonna be times where we’ll go to him late, where he’s gonna have to make a play in isolation, where he’s gonna have to make a one-on-one play, and he’s certainly capable of doing that.”

Tatum is averaging 13.9 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while showing a smooth adjustment to the NBA game.

“He’s spacing well when Kyrie has it. He’s moving well when Al [Horford] has it in the post. He does a good job of being able to both play with the ball in isolation and make a play, but also know when to space appropriately and be able to play off others,” Stevens said.
