Jayson Tatum's performance Friday night against the San Antonio Spurs will long live in Boston Celtics lore.

The All-Star forward scored a career-high 60 points, tying Hall of Famer Larry Bird's franchise record for the most points in a single game.

Here is Tatum's stat line from the 143-140 overtime win, which also included the largest comeback (32-point deficit) in team history to complete an absolutely wild night at TD Garden.

How does Tatum's line compare with Bird's 60-point outburst in 1985? Here's a side-by-side look:

Tatum also is among the youngest players in NBA history to score 60 or more points. He's the first player in Celtics history to have multiple 50-point games in one season, too.

Tatum has taken his game to another level in his fourth season with the Celtics. He's averaging a career-high 25.8 points and reached the All-Star Game for the second consecutive campaign. These accomplishments are even more impressive when you consider he battled COVID-19 earlier in the season.

The 23-year-old forward is a special player, and the Celtics will need him to keep playing at a high level as they jockey for playoff positioning in the Eastern Conference over the final couple weeks of the regular season.
