Jayson Tatum has failed many of his fans around as he didn’t live up to the expectation everyone had around him in his first trip to the NBA Finals. Shannon Sharpe is one of those as he is disappointed spectating his poor performance in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors are 2022 NBA champions and it’s a close deal for the Boston Celtics. As unfortunately, they fell on the losing side. Jayson Tatum didn’t show up in the form many expected him to last night. He looked washed and wasn’t able to have much impact on the game. His poor performance and not stepping up cost the Celtics a championship.
The Boston Celtics hosted the Golden State Warriors at TD Garden for Game 6 of the NBA Finals as they wanted to force a Game 7 at Chase Center. But nothing like that happened as the Dubs were ready to wrap it up early and register another title on their name. The game unexpectedly was not at all closely contested but surely a tensed one. The Celtics came in ruling and had a 14-2 lead in the starting minutes of the first quarter but soon it all looked washed and everything started going south. As the Dubs made a comeback and led by 22 points in the game. The Celtics once were able to cut it down to 8 but Chef just manhandled them everywhere on the floor. The final box score stands at 103-90 favoring the Golden State Warriors.
Jayson Tatum in the second half looked like he has ran out of fuel and is just a decoy in the game. Andrew Wiggins was also able to lock him down on some moments and even Stephen Curry got a piece of defending him. Jayson Tatum turned the ball over many times (100 turnovers in the postseason) and even got it deflected by the rivals. He was limited to only 13 points (2 points in the second half of the game), 7 assists and 3 rebounds. He didn’t show up when the team needed him the most even though he’s the reason they were able to turn their season around and enter the postseason. But now he’s getting dirt thrown at him with critical takes and trolls.
