The Celtics prepared well for defending against the Nets superstar Kevin Durant. Boston managed to limit the two-time NBA champion to just 16 points in Game 3 of the first round series.
Some of those defensive assignments are given to Jayson Tatum who has been doing a decent job. As observed by StatMuse, Durant scored 10 points and had 10 turnovers when guarded by Tatum.
Moreover, KD made only two baskets against the Celtics star in three games.
