Winning G6 ‘all we’ve got to worry’ says Tatum after G5 loss to Dubs

Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum took the podium after his team’s Game 5 loss to the Golden State Warriors looking perhaps perturbed by the Finals loss inching them closer to elimination. But, the St. Louis native still sounded confident in his team’s and his ability to pull out the series win in the two potentially remaining games to secure the 2022 NBA Championship.

“We’ve got to be better,” said Tatum, putting his finger on the problem plaguing Boston all postseason long. “We’re hard to beat when we don’t turn the ball over. Clearly, we’re easy to beat when we do turn the ball over.”

“I’ve said it before: You’d better be confident, right?” he asked rhetorically. “We (don’t have) to win two in one day. We just got to win one game on Thursday. We’ve been in this situation before, so it’s not over. (We’ve) got to win on Thursday.”

“That’s all we’ve got to worry about right now,” he added. Boston has indeed played better in this postseason with their backs against the wall Game 5 notwithstanding.

But there is no more margin for error, as one more loss will end the Celtics’ season — and their only certain chance to secure a place in Boston lore forever.
