The Boston Celtics defeated the San Antonio Spurs 121-116 on Saturday night, giving Boston their 28th win of the season, as they’re at the top of the NBA standings.
The Celtics had control for most of the game, but a late fourth quarter comeback allowed the Spurs to tie it up with about 40 seconds left on the clock, at 116 points.
But with 37.4 seconds on the clock, Derrick White inbounded the ball to Jayson Tatum, who hit a clutch pull-up in the low post over former teammate Romeo Langford to put Boston up by two with only 33.7 seconds remaining in the game.
When Tatum hit this shot, the San Antonio’s cheerleaders ran off the court, and the Spurs never scored again in the game.
After the game, Tatum jokingly told Langford he’s still too small, in fact, so small that Tatum cradled the baby at him before giving him a hug.
