    Actually seven trillion and one. Which kind of makes it even more impressive (or unimpressive).

    Not a good sign for a series when the only way you can win is with your 23-year-old star being the best player on the court against multiple former MVPs, but man, it's a beautiful thing when it happens. Another totally absurd performance from Jason Tatum tonight. I've said this before, but in some ways I think that the most impressive thing he's doing for this super limited Celtics team right now is just how many possessions he soaks up. With Brown out and Kemba still clearly not healthy (late-season surge notwithstanding), there just aren't many other options for them to create shots, and the number of possessions that end up with Tatum catching a hot potato out past the three-point line above the break with 7 seconds and having to just make a play is outrageous.

    Pressure is on for Ainge to reshape this roster: when you have a star who consistently can bring it at this level in the playoff (and a really good second guy like Jaylen Brown), every year you aren't in the title contention group is a major waste. (Looking at you, as well, Golden State...)

    To this point: Synergy has him with 31 points off isos. 31! That's total madness, and of course completely unsustainable, but it really speaks to how the 50-spot somehow almost UNDERRATES what he's doing right now.

    Well said but you got the age wrong - Luka is only 22!
