Jayson Tatum believes Celtics are ‘clicking at the right time’ after sweep of Pacers

Celtics, Jayson Tatum

The Boston Celtics advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals after sweeping the Indiana Pacers in the first round.

The Pacers remained competitive throughout the series, but it was evident that the Celtics were the better team. Whenever the games were close, it was Boston who constantly executed the right plays and made the clutch baskets, while Indiana was often left scrambling for answers as to how to stop their opponents.

The Beantown squad no longer looks like the inconsistent team that they once were during the regular season, and for sophomore forward Jayson Tatum, it’s because of the fact that they’re peaking at the right moment.

After Game 4, Tatum told reporter that Boston is finally finding their stride and is now playing like the championship team fans thought they could be at the start of the season.

Jayson Tatum was one of the main reasons why Boston is playing better. He averaged 19.2 points and 5.5 rebounds in the series against the Pacers. It looks like he’s ready to pick up where he left off last season when he led the team to the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Celtics now await the winner of the Milwaukee Bucks-Detroit Pistons series.
