The NBA All-Star Game may not mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things, but doing something no other All-Star has ever done is still pretty noteworthy.
That's what Celtics forward Jayson Tatum did Sunday night in Salt Lake City, setting a new All-Star Game record with 55 points in Team Giannis' 184-175 win over Team LeBron.
With the obvious caveat that there was very little defense being played, Tatum still put on an offensive clinic, shooting 22-of-31 from the field and 10-of-18 from three. He scored 27 of his points in the third quarter alone, which also set a record for most points scored in a single quarter in All-Star Game history. Tatum added 10 rebounds and six assists while playing a game-high 35 minutes.
His efforts earned him All-Star Game MVP honors, making him the first Celtic to win that award since Larry Bird in 1982.
Check out some of the highlights below, including Tatum going head-to-head with Boston teammate Jaylen Brown. Brown, who debuted the mask he'll be wearing until his facial fracture heals, led Team LeBron with 35 points and 14 rebounds.
