|Jayson Tatum: Sparks 31-3 run in comeback|
Tatum recorded 28 points (9-23 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and a steal across 33 minutes in Sunday’s 105-87 win over the Nuggets.
The Scoop: Tatum and Jaylen Brown turned a likely loss into a runaway victory with a 31-3 run in the fourth quarter. It marks one of the biggest comeback games of the season and illustrates the Celtics' mettle when they face adversity. After an ice-cold first half, Tatum began to show signs of life in the third quarter and put the foot on the gas in the final stanza.

The Scoop: Tatum won't have to miss any time despite dealing with an illness after Friday's game against Minnesota. Tatum has averaged 35.5 minutes per game over the last five outings, and he'll figure two receive the same kind of workload in Sunday's game.
