Jayson Tatum On Missed Game-Winner Vs. Pacers: 'That Was On Me'

As he showed on opening night and a handful of other times throughout his young career, he can hit those high-pressure, gotta-have-it hoops.

And it casts a little bit of doubt in the budding superstar’s ability to bang home those game-winners on a consistent basis.

After a frantic final minute in Sunday’s game found the Celtics with the ball down by one point with 7.7 seconds left, Grant Williams inbounded to Tatum at the top of the key.

This time, Tatum’s shot clanked off the rim and the Celtics walked off the floor with a 108-107 loss — the team’s second straight defeat.

But Tatum has not been getting to the line so far this season, with his four free throws on Sunday night his first freebies of the year.

Boston had another chance to win a game on a dramatic, last-second attempt, but this time, Tatum’s shot didn’t fall.
