Jayson Tatum’s historic performance propels the Celtics past the Nets in Game 3.

When the Celtics took the court against the Nets on Friday night, they had two losses under their belt.

What appeared to be another win for the Nets’ big three was shattered by a historic night from Celtics star Jayson Tatum.

Tatum had one of the best scoring nights in NBA history, not just for his career.

He had a playoff career-high 50 points, six rebounds, and seven assists.

“Just one of those nights,” Tatum explained. “I had a tough shooting night in the first game, and I didn’t get much of a chance to play in the last game because I got poked in the eye.”

Tatum also became the franchise’s sixth player to score 50 points in a playoff game.

He is also the third-youngest player in NBA history to score 50 or more points in a postseason game.

“A lot of guys stepped up tonight around Jayson being special,” said Boston coach Brad Stevens.

After struggling in the previous two playoff games, this was a fantastic night.

Tatum struggled to make an impact in the Celtics’ last two playoff games, in which they lost, but playing on their home court gave him an advantage.

“There’s nothing like playing in front of your fans,” Jayson said.

He joined Celtics John Havlicek, Isaiah Thomas, Ray Allen, Sam Jones, and Bob Cousy in scoring 50 points in a playoff game.

Marcus Smart, a teammate, stated, “He was just mentally locked in.” “We’re facing a juggernaut of a team.” As I previously stated, the world and we are both aware of it. It will not be simple. You can’t sit down or take a step back. You have to be able to push forward, which is exactly what we did tonight.”

Other Celtics players, besides Tatum, contributed significantly to the team’s victory.

Marcus Smart had 23 points, 3 rebounds, and 6 assists.

Tristan Thompson was all over the court, scoring 19 points and grabbing 13 rebounds.

Evan Fournier had 17 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists.

James Harden and Kevin Durant had a historic night.

James Harden, on the other hand, led the Nets with a double-double of 41 points and 10 assists, as well as 7 rebounds.

Kevin Durant led the way with 39 points, 9 rebounds, and an assist.

Despite the loss, both Net’s players made history. They are the first Nets teammates to score 30 points or more in a playoff game since 2006.

Meanwhile, former Celtics player Kyrie Irving dropped 16 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists despite being booed every time he touched the ball.

He was booed even before the game, during warmups and introductions, but he still played for his teams.

However, things took a turn for the worse when a few fans began a vulgar chant directed at Irving.

“This is basketball.” “I’ve been in a few different environments in my life,” Irving explained. “As I said, as long as it’s just the nature of basketball out there and nothing else, I’m fine with it.”

Both teams will now meet again on Monday at TD Garden for Game 4.
