Jayson Tatum has failed to show up emphatically as he has done in the rest of the playoffs. The inaugural Larry Bird Eastern Conference Finals MVP is averaging a paltry 23.2 points in the series.

On the other hand, Jaylen Brown has recently missed the mark on several occasions as well. The 2021 All-Star had only 18 points in the Celtics’ 10-point loss on Monday, shooting 5-for-18 from the field, and 0-for-5 from deep.
