Jayson Tatum's 60-point performance on Friday night was nothing short of spectacular. Along with tying Larry Bird's Celtics franchise record for points in a game, he helped Boston overcome a 32-point deficit in a 143-140 OT win over the San Antonio Spurs. He trails only Devin Booker as the second-youngest player with a 60-point game in NBA history.
As tweets poured in after the game acknowledging his record-setting performance, Tatum recreated Wilt Chamberlain's iconic photo from the Hall of Famer's 100-point game in 1962:
