Jayson Tatum reached a significant milestone in his career during the Boston Celtics’ 124-114 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, and it was a record-breaking achievement for the young player.

Tatum entered the game against the Brooklyn Nets with the knowledge that he was just 16 points away from reaching the 10,000-point threshold. However, what he didn’t realize was that he would become the youngest player in Boston Celtics history to accomplish this career milestone.

Tatum made history during the second quarter of the game at Barclays Center, and he expressed his thoughts on the achievement after the game. He scored an impressive 32 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in 41 minutes.

Tatum humbly stated, “It’s kind of hard to process in the moment. It’s a huge accomplishment. I’m extremely blessed to be a part of such a great franchise, and I’ve just been fortunate to be on some really good teams, have some really, really good coaches, and obviously have some great teammates that have helped contribute to 10,000 points along the way.”

During an interview with NBC Sports Boston’s Abby Chin, Tatum also mentioned his aspirations for the future: “Hopefully, I’ve got a lot more to go and a lot more games to win.”

Tatum has been delivering exceptional performances this season, averaging 30.2 points on a remarkable 55% shooting from the field in Boston’s first five games. If he continues at this pace, these statistics would mark career-highs for the three-time All-NBA honoree.

The Celtics, the only undefeated team in the league, will return to action on Monday night when they face the Timberwolves in Minnesota.
