P.J. Washington trolls Jayson Tatum after Hornets upset Celtics in OT originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
The highly anticipated game between the Charlotte Hornets and the Boston Celtics on Monday night ended in an overtime upset, and Hornets forward P.J. Washington couldn’t resist some playful trolling of Celtics star Jayson Tatum.
Tatum, known for his dedication to never missing games, had previously made headlines for his criticism of load management and his commitment to always playing his best. This dedication was evident in a Nike camp video where Tatum emphasized the importance of showing up for every game, even against teams like the Hornets, where fewer people might be watching.
The Celtics appeared to be in control for most of the game, but ultimately fell short in overtime, despite Tatum’s impressive performance with a game-high 45 points. Following the upset victory, P.J. Washington took the opportunity to taunt Tatum, adding an extra layer of intrigue to future matchups between these teams.
With one more game scheduled in Charlotte later in the season, the rivalry between Tatum and the Hornets is sure to continue to capture attention and anticipation.
