Three stars from Saturday’s NBA playoff games

    The top two seeds in the NBA playoffs saw their fortunes go in separate directions on Saturday. The Oklahoma City Thunder fell behind the Dallas Mavericks, while the Boston Celtics regained control of their semifinal series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

    Here are three stars from Saturday’s playoff action. 

    Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics forward | 33 points, 13 rebounds, six assists

    Tatum didn’t have his best shooting night. However, through pure will, he not only led the Celtics with 33 points (11-of-25) but also finished just four assists shy of a triple-double. 

    It was clear from the tip-off in Game 3 that Tatum was a man on a mission. He kept shooting despite his many misses, attacked the basket with reckless abandon, and also dominated the defensive boards (12 defensive rebounds).
