Jayson Tatum scored 51 points – the most in a Game 7 in NBA history — and the Boston Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers 112-88 on Sunday to advance to the Eastern Conference finals for the second straight year. The Celtics, who lost to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals last year, will face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals, which begin on Wednesday in Boston.
Postgame Tatum shouted out Philly native Kevin Hart and said “I want him to still answer my phone call after today. No hard feelings.” Hart responded “Jayson Tatum, I hate it but I got to give you props. Boy, I got to congratulate you for the friend you are and the competitor you proved to be today. You showed up and you showed out. You put your foot in our a**,” said Hart.
"I hope you're proud of yourself, you f**king a**hole."
