Jayson Tatum is playing in his first NBA Finals and is one of the leaders of the Celtics. His opponent Draymond Green, for whom this is his sixth NBA Finals, was asked what he thought about the Boston’s star debut at this stage.
“It’s tough [to play in the Finals for the first time],” the three-time NBA champion said. “You’re experiencing something for the first time. I think he’s handled it well.
“He’s maybe not shot the ball as well as he’d like or everyone else would like, but overall I think he’s bee playing well. That’s why it’s a 2-2 series, coming back for Game 5.
“So, I think he’s handling it all extremely well. He’s taking what the defense gives him and that’s what great players do. I think he’s doing a good job.
Tatum is averaging 22.3 points, 7 rebounds and 7.8 assists in 40 minutes per game for the Celtics in this year’s Finals.
