New York – Basketball player Jayson Tatum took care of the most significant moment of the opening games of the NBA playoffs, when in the last second he secured a 115: 114 win over Brooklyn for Boston. The Celtics took the lead in a series played for four victories, as did Miami after winning 115:91 over Atlanta. Defenders of the title from Milwaukee, who won 93:86 over Chicago, also succeeded. The best team in the basic part of Phoenix lost New Orleans 110: 99.

Boston led much of the match over Brooklyn, by as much as 15 points. In the last quarter, however, the Nets managed to turn around thanks to 39 points by Kyrie Irving, who scored 16 points in the last part. It was Irving who put the threesome at 114: 111 45 seconds before the end. But Boston still managed to turn the game around. Jaylen Brown lowered and Marcus Smart indicated a shot during the last attack, then moved the ball to the approaching Tatum, who turned around the defender in motion and at the same time with the horn decided in favor of the Celtics.

“Marcus and I looked at each other and he gave me a great pass. There is nothing better than winning a playoff match on the home field and a siren basket,” Tatum rejoiced after the first winning shot of his career. For Boston, she was the first in the playoffs since 2010, when Paul Pierce made a similar decision against Miami.

“You always have more time than you really think. And that was confirmed. When Jayson ran, I knew we could make it, even if time passed,” Smart said.

Janis Adetokunbo, along with Nikola Jokic and Joel Embidi, is the nominee for the prize for the most useful player of the basic part and against Chicago showed why, when 27 points and 16 rebounds led Milwaukee to win the match in which they played the primary defense. Thanks to him, the Bucks built up a 16-point lead, which they lost, but the tired Bulls still defeated.

Miami made a great defense, stopping Atlanta star Trae Young. The fourth best scorer of the season hit a single shot from the game and scored only eight points. He has not scored so few points this season. In the Miami jersey, Duncan Robinson turned eight of the nine triple attempts and set a new club record in the playoffs. A total of 27 points drew Heat to win.

“We have to appreciate the opponent. Miami really flew at us aggressively and we couldn’t handle it,” Young admitted. “Miami really played on a different level. We talked in the locker room that this is a playoff, but the opponent showed us what it means,” said Atlanta coach Nate McMillan.

Chris Paul has once again shown that he finally wants to win the coveted title, and in the last quarter he led Phoenix to a win over New Orleans. He recorded 19 of his 30 points in it and did not give the opponent a chance to turn around when the Pelicans reduced the loss from 23 points to six. New Orleans was not helped by the great performance of the Lithuanian pivotal Jonas Valančiunas, who had 18 points and especially 25 rebounds. He thus lagged behind the NBA playoff record by a single rebound.
