Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics have been consistently inconsistent so far this season but again it isn’t the team one who knows Basketball can really doubt and criticize. But the reality being very different the Boston Celtics are currently the most criticized National Basketball Association team as the duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown again fell short against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Boston Celtics are currently ranked as the 11th seed in the eastern conference with the record of 21 wins and 22 looses at below .500.

The Joel Embiid led Philadelphia 76ers were successful in shutting the duo down as the not so close contested game even though there were lead changes fell towards the 76ers as the final box score is 111-99. The Boston Celtics again weren’t successful in breaking the zone defense of Philadelphia 76ers as the team commits to play isolation basketball and was again after a while seen lacking in team chemistry which is the biggest pillar they need to work on and win if they want to add numbers on the winning side of their record.

Jayson Tatum in the post game reflecting on the defeat against the 76ers played the blame game but took it all on him as he blamed himself and quoted: “Obviously it started with the first unit. It started with myself.” Further Jayson Tatum stretched how he wasn’t really playing his aggressive game style something he is really known for and how carelessly he turned the ball over for 7 times which resulted in free points for the Philadelphia 76ers and also somewhere sold the game as every point counts.

Jayson Tatum coming up and throwing himself under the bus rather than a teammate or coach is appreciated by fans around the globe but the matter of concern is Boston Celtics winning more and more games if they want to make it to the play-offs or even the play-in tournament. The rumours of the duo breaking down were shut but again they are up in the air as the front office may alter the roaster soon as the trade deadline nears. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are currently the most dominant young duo of the league so breaking them apart won’t really be meaningful as the team surely sees a future with both the stars around but the rest of the team is possibly on the radar of the desk as they want to get better and win more games.
