Tatum gives basketball players Celtics victory in the last second


The Boston Celtics have started the NBA playoffs with a narrow win over Brooklyn Nets: 115-114. The throw that yielded the winning points came in the last second of the game. Jayson Tatum got his hands on the ball and laid up just before the end buzzer.

Kevin Durant could have helped the Nets to victory just seconds before, but his shot from distance missed the basket, leaving the lead 114-113 and allowing the Celtics to strike in the seconds remaining.

‘Matchwinner’ Tatum was also the top scorer for his team in the first round playoff game. He came to 31 points. Kyrie Irving was the top scorer for the Nets with 39 points.

Phoenix Suns, the best team in the regular season and therefore placed first in the playoffs in the Western Conference, beat the eighth seeded New Orleans Pelicans 110-99. Chris Paul made 30 points for the Suns and he was especially on the move in the fourth quarter. Paul prevented a comeback from the Pelicans with 19 points.
