Tatum remarked, “That corner three was a good shot.” “I believed it was entering. We had a few chances.”

Tatum was so passive the entire game that it was amazing Boston (48-14) had a chance to win. In addition to four rebounds and eight assists, he finished with fifteen points on five of thirteen shots. Tatum missed a wide-open three, made many passive drives to the hoop in the fourth quarter, and was overall not as involved as he usually is. He also committed a couple of critical turnovers in transition.

When asked about his performance, Tatum responded, “I think with our team’s dynamic, when other guys kind of got it going in a rhythm, in a flow… you got to space the floor.” “Respecting the space of others is something we always talk about. We’re trying to do that on that possession if it means being in the corner or passing them the ball. You must respect that.”

With an incredible 41 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals in under 41 minutes, Jaylen Brown kept the Celtics in the game. However, they frequently lost games due to careless play, which allowed the Nuggets (43-20) to lead 16–6 in points off turnovers and shoot 11–38 (28.9%) from three-point range.

Klay Thompson remarked, “I know we’re going to miss him if he does need time off.” “We simply need to work together as a team because we’ve been in this situation before when he’s taken time off. When he does return, whenever that may be, I know he’ll be prepared to leave. All we can do is hope he heals quickly.”
Curry has missed three games this season—two due to right knee discomfort and one for rest—despite not being in the Warriors’ locker room when reporters were permitted access.
