Jayson Tatum must have seen what Damian Lillard has been up to lately and decided to try it out for himself.
In the first quarter of Game 2 vs. the Philadelphia 76ers, Tatum pulled up from halfcourt and banked in the bucket as the shot clock expired. The 22-year-old somehow even drew a foul on the play.
The kid is special.
Tatum is looking to carry the momentum from his 32-point, 13-rebound Game 1 performance into Wednesday night. Judging by that ridiculous shot and his 18 points in the first half of Game 2, it's mission accomplished for the C's All-Star.
