Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics move in front of Golden State for best odds to win NBA Finals
The Celtics did all they could in the Finals last season but ultimately fell short and lost to Steph Curry and the Warriors. Boston has started the season strong with a 3-1 start and will look to keep the momentum rolling into the next month. They have an explosive offense that can shoot the lights out and finish at the rim, as well as having a suffocating team defense that was their anchor in the playoffs last year.
Tied for fourth in the league for most points per game so far this season is the Celtics three-time all-star, Jayson Tatum with 32.5 points per. He’s tied with the sharpshooter Devin Booker. Boston is without their center Robert Williams until he’s healthy enough to return to the court. That’s why Tatum (8.2) is leading the Celtics in rebounds per game.

Along with Tatum, Boston has all-star SG Jaylen Brown, who leads the team is steals per game (1.2). Brown is also an elite two-way player who is the second-highest scorer on the team. Other key pieces on the team are Al Horford, Grant Williams, and reigning DPOY, Marcus Smart. If Boston can stay healthy, they have a considerable chance to make it back to the Finals.
