Jayson Tatum becomes youngest player in Celtics history to post 50-point game

Jayson Tatum is still young enough to set Boston Celtics records.

The Celtics star posted a 53-point night on Friday, making him the youngest player in the team's considerable history to score 50 in a single game, per StatMuse. He's also the first Celtics player since Larry Bird to score as many as 53 according to the NBA.

Jaylen Brown giving Jayson Tatum the points here is my favorite moment of the night.
