Jayson Tatum had nothing but good words to say about the fans of the Boston Celtics after Game 3 win over the Golden State Warriors (100-116).
The superstar of the Celtics said the fans’ support was a big boost for the team and he felt great playing in front of such a passionate crowd.
“Throughout this entire playoffs, we haven’t been as good at home. We definitely feel bad about that, to our fans, because they give us so much energy and so much juice.
Like you said, before the game even started you could feel the energy throughout the building. First Finals game since 2012 or ’10, whatever it was.
They were excited. It just felt great. Felt like it’s been a while since we’ve played in this building. So happy to get a win in front of the crowd.
They’ve been so great for us throughout the Playoffs and all season and throughout my career. It was great to get a win for them. We’re going to need them on Friday, as well,” Jayson Tatum told media, including Hedgeout.net, after Game 3.
This was the first NBA Finals game at TD Garden since 2010. The Celtics now lead the series 2-1 and have the momentum on their side ahead of Friday’s Game 4.
