Jayson Tatum might wind up third in Rookie of the Year voting when it’s all said and done. The 2017 NBA draft’s No. 3 overall pick scored 10 of his team-high 25 points in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s Game 5, including a critical layup with 22 seconds left, to help the Boston Celtics fend off a Philadelphia 76ers team fighting for its playoff lives. Thanks to Tatum’s scoring and timely two-way heroics from veteran linchpins Al Horford and Marcus Smart, the Celtics withstood Philly’s furious second-half comeback, regained control of the game in the final minute, and held on for a 114-112 victory in front of a raucous crowd at TD Garden.

Bledsoe made a visit to the podium, thanking and congratulating the Celtics and even half-joking that a Terry Rosé is on the way.
