Jayson Tatum played the hero for the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of their first-round series against the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night.
With the Nets up only one point, the Celtics had a last-ditch effort to try and win the game. Marcus Smart got the ball on the wing and pumped fake. He blew past Nets defenders Bruce Brown and Nic Claxton to drive instead of shoot and found Tatum cutting to the basket.

Tatum got the ball within inches of Kyrie Irving in the key and spun around him to make the layup as the buzzer sounded.
Boston won 115-114 to go up 1-0 in the best-of-7 series.
“We all thought Smart was gonna shoot it … When he took that dribble, we made eye contact, he made a great pass and I just had to make a layup,” Tatum said after the game.
