The Boston Celtics are in control of their series against the Cleveland Cavaliers as they won game four on Monday on the road. The Cavaliers were without their best player, Donovan Mitchell, but they still put up a good fight in the game and made it close. Boston ended up winning 109-102, and Jayson Tatum stepped up big time. Tatum finished the game with 33 points on 11-25 shooting, and he also had 11 rebounds. No other player scored more points than Tatum on Monday night.

Boston needs Jayson Tatum to have big games like that if they are going to go all the way this season. He hasn’t been playing that great in the postseason so far, so it was good for Celtics fans to see him drop 33. He needs to have games like this more consistently.

Now, this series is shifting over to Boston and the Celtics are up 3-1. They just need just one more win to get to the Eastern Conference Finals, and they will have a chance to do it in front of their home crowd. Tatum was feeling good after the big road win and he wants to put on a show in Boston.

“There’s no better feeling than winning a playoff game on the road,” Tatum said after the game, according to an article from ESPN. “Tough environment and the crowd was great. Now, it’s time to go back to Boston and play well in front of our fans and give them something to cheer for.”

Game five will take place on Wednesday night in Boston, and Jayson Tatum and the Celtics will be looking to finish the series.
