Near the close of Monday’s game between the Celtics and Knicks, Jayson Tatum was dismissed. Adding to an otherwise miserable evening. Tatum had been arguing with the officials after the Celtics’ last possession when he believed they had fouled him on a three-point shot.
Then the Knicks made a 3-pointer from the other end, and Tatum’s protests seemed to get louder at that point. Then Tatum was benched with 3:46 remaining in the contest. The Knicks had been comfortably ahead for the majority of the game; the Celtics were down 105-91 at that time. Boston’s three-game winning streak was ended by New York, which later defeated Boston 109-94.
Jayson Tatum completed the game with 14 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds while shooting just 6-for-18 from the field. He labored for the whole of the game, but he also committed four turnovers. Tatum failed to surpass the 20-point threshold after the half for the second straight game.

Tatum must break his brief slump for the Celtics
Jayson Tatum was ejected for the first time in his professional career as well. Yet previously this season, when the Celtics were playing in Montreal. He was also sent off against the Raptors in the preseason.
Tatum has labored for the second consecutive game. Having also done so on Saturday night’s victory over the 76ers despite making the game-winning shot. Boston needed him more than usual tonight because Jaylen Brown was unavailable due to a personal matter.
If the Celtics are to reclaim the top seed in the East from a resurgent Bucks club that has won 14 straight games. They will need Brown to play at his peak and Jayson Tatum to snap his short slump.
The Knicks, who have won their last six games and surpassed the Brooklyn Nets in the standings, have also quietly gone on an impressive run. Also Read: Damian Lillard incredible career-high 71 points to lead the Blazers past the Rockets 131-114
Josh Hart’s funny response to Jayson Tatum being ejected
Josh Hart is becoming popular with the New York Knicks supporters after being a fan favorite with the LA Lakers, New Orleans Pelicans, and Portland Trail Blazers. Since his acquisition at the trade deadline, the team has gone 6-0.
After cracking up after Jayson Tatum’s expulsion during the team’s 109-94 victory over the Boston Celtics at home, Hart offered the Knicks’ fan base another memory to treasure.
When the club sealed a 2-1 season series victory against the Celtics, they already pumped Knicks supporters. Boston entered the game as the league’s top record holder, giving the victory even more significance. For New Yorkers in a full MSG arena, Tatum’s dismissal and Hart’s response only enhanced the moment.
Josh Hart garnered a lot of praise for his game-related antics, especially in light of the outrage over Jayson Tatum’s disqualification.
