Jayson Tatum: ‘Definitely Felt’ Effects of Back-to-Back

Basketball Insiders

Jayson Tatum actually played a back-to-back-to-back-to-back in college this year, during Duke’s four-game, four-day march through the ACC tournament. So one part of NBA life isn’t totally foreign to the rookie.

Games on consecutive days are going to be a common thing for Tatum going forward, and he knows it’s going to be an adjustment. He struggled with his shot at times Sunday, but did enough to help the Boston Celtics beat the Portland Trail Blazers 70-64 at the NBA Summer League — on a day where he was the marquee attraction. “The back-to-back, the quick turnaround, I definitely felt it today, sluggish and tired,” Tatum said. “But we got the win.”
