With their backs firmly against the wall, Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics responded in an emphatic manner. After staying alive in the Eastern Conference Finals with a win in Game 4, the Celtics returned to Boston and jumped right on the Miami Heat in Game 5 to leave little doubt that this was now a series. With a helpful screen from Robert Williams III clearing a path to the rim, a determined Tatum zipped past the defense into the lane before ending the possession with a bang in the form of a powerful one-handed throwdown. The monster slam was part of a dominant first quarter for the Celtics, who jumped out to a 15-point lead and never looked back. Tatum posted 21 points, eight rebounds, 11 assists and two steals as his squad staved off elimination once again with a 110-97 victory on May 25, 2023.
