Another day, another wild Jayson Tatum stat.

The Boston Celtics forward has been lighting it up the past month and that continued in Wednesday night's win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Tatum dropped a game-high 32 points while going 11-for-22 from the field and 5-for-10 from 3-point range.

The performance makes Tatum the third player in Celtics history to put up 32 points or more in five straight games. The other two to accomplish the feat? Larry Bird in 1985 and John Havlicek in 1972.

That's obviously some great company for Tatum to be in, but he also separated himself from the pack by doing something no other C's player has done before.

The 22-year-old became the first to notch 30-plus points and make three or more 3s in five consecutive games.

Tatum will look to keep his hot streak going when the Celtics host the Utah Jazz on Friday night.
