Tatum's career-high leads Celtics to comeback win

The Celtics go above .500 as they improve their record to 27-26 with a 145-136 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Boston came back from a 17-point deficit which is embarrassing we were even down that much to the T-Wolves, but we still got the overtime victory.

Jayson Tatum finished with a double-double and a new career-high with 53 points to go along with 10 rebounds. Tatum shot 16/25 from the floor. Jayson looked a lot more aggressive today, and didn't seem to force any shots. JT was on fire during the 4th quarter. He even earned 16 free throws today, and knocked 15 of them down from the stripe.
