Two Celtics gunning for the ECF Finals MVP

 

Their depth and star talent are some things that the Celtics can boast. They are a team that had eight scorers knock down 100+ three-pointers each. So, when it came down to voting who was taking home the hardware, the choice was very tough.

 

The race between the two Jays, in fact, was so tight that it was decided by one vote. Considering the stat line that Tatum had so far, there would not be any complaints had he taken home the hardware twice in three years. He averaged 30.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, and a whopping 6.3 assists to keep the Celtics offense infectious.

Meanwhile, Brown was no slouch at all. He still notched 29.8 points, five rebounds, and three assists. The determiner could be the clutch factor that he brought in throughout the four games against the Pacers. Moreover, his defensive work had him notch two steals and 0.7 blocks. This all-around factor mixed with hitting the right shots at the proper time to snag momentum away from their NBA Playoffs rivals was all considered.

 

Tatum already knows that Brown is a great player and there’s not at all any competition between them. This will surely make for an astounding duo for more years to come given their extensions.
