However, the two stars are yet to prove themselves as legitimate playoff performers. Over the last few seasons, time and time again, the Celtics have struggled to clinch the Eastern Conference title, despite having a good roster.

Maybe the drought will finally end, and the Celtics will return to the biggest stage in basketball. Speaking of returns, Jayson Tatum is finally back after missing weeks of basketball. The 22-year-old put on a show on his return and was instrumental in the Celtics’ victory vs the Bulls.

Additionally, Tatum dug deep in his bag in the first quarter, finishing with a crafty up and under finish around the rim. The move reminded fans of the one and only Michael Jordan. Jordan was known for his crafty moves at the rim, and tonight JT channeled his inner MJ to do the same against the Bulls.

Following this victory against the Bulls, the Celtics registered their 10th victory of the season. So far, they are looking like one of the best teams in the East, but can they continue this form over the course of the entire season?
