” I didn’t want to leave with regret. I was just trying to do the right thing “Explains Boston winger after this victory in match 6.” In the fourth quarter of the fifth match, they were stronger than us. I meant it. It was in the back of everyone’s mind. We knew we could lose. Our season has fallen. “
“That’s why it’s paid so much”
Led by 14 points, the Bucks re-entered the comeback to return to -4 minutes nine minutes from the end. Everyone has in mind the scenario of game 5, but Jayson Tatum then takes the game himself. He will score 11 points in a row to get 16 of his team’s 26 points!
“It simply came to our notice then. We saw it in his eyes. ” says Marcus Smart. “That’s why he paid so much.” It’s just for those times. I told him the whole game, ‘Be yourself, man’ and he was. He’s here to do it. That is why we are counting on him. We did our part in the first half, while they did a good job on it. We raised the game level, took care of him … Then he got in and did what he could: in the fourth half, he took control of the match and brought us back to the House. »
This is the first time in his career that Jayson Tatum has avoided an outdoor elimination. In fact, since 2013, Boston has always lost decisive outdoor matches. Maybe it’s a turning point, because neither the Bucks nor the Celtics were able to maintain the advantage of the home field.
“He took the next step” Al Horford trusts his teammate. “That’s what the best players do at times like this.” He’s a unique player and he did it tonight. He has peace and knows when to shoot or when to pass. He knows when to be aggressive. We relied on him a lot tonight and he was prolific. »
From now on, place in game 7. See you on Sunday at 9:30 p.m.
