Kendrick Perkins on Jayson Tatum struggling in crunch time: 'You might have to run plays for other players like Jrue Holiday and Derrick White'

0 6
I saw a stat that had Jayson Tatum with the lowest field goal percentage during crunch time for superstars. What do you think they should do in crunch time to maybe not be so predictable against other teams? Kendrick Perkins: Well, I think sometimes you gotta run misdirection and other times, you might have to run plays for other players. You do have Jrue Holiday on the roster, he’s battle-tested, and you do have Derrick White.  Doc Rivers used to always say just because I draw up your play doesn’t mean it’s your shot. And I think the world has painted this narrative that if superstars don’t take the last shot, they don’t have a killer mindset and that’s not the case. We have seen time and time again when LeBron James passed up on shots and got great shots for others, wide-open looks.

I’ll address the Celtics and how Murray just gave them that work and I mean he STOOD on Business… dropping a 44 piece wing dinner lemon pepper style “All Flats” straight from Magic City!!! Carry the hell on… – 10:05 PM

Dejounte Murray tonight:
— More PTS than Tatum
— More DREB than Kristaps
— More AST than Holiday
— More STL than White pic.twitter.com/p5pk1619nu10:03 PM

Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Mazzulla finally runs a last second play for someone other than Tatum and Porziņģis makes it work, finding Jaylen cutting off the double who goes iso and hits a tough shot too early in the clock. Now Atlanta has the last shot and Celtics can’t foul. – 10:00 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
#celtics go away from Tatum, use him as diversion in back court, play through Porzingis and get Brown a potential game winning elbow jumper for the win.
Growth. – 9:59 PM
Lauren L. Williams @WilliamsLaurenL
Murray took a bit to get up after drawing a foul off Derrick White. He was wincing but got to his feet with some help from teammates and walked to the bench on his own – 9:55 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Tatum missed the swing to Holiday. Instead got forced baseline. Bad shot at the end of regulation. pic.twitter.com/rgPhcqXIt09:45 PM

Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Mazzulla had two timeouts left and could have called one for the final play. He didn’t. Tatum doesn’t get a good look and it’s OT. #Celtics #Hawks9:44 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Tatum misses contested 3 at the buzzer. Overtime. Yikes. #Celtics #Hawks9:43 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Encouraging sequence there for Celtics. Jaylen gets a touch, C’s run an action with White/Tatum (which was well covered) and Jaylen makes a play. Far better than just settling for isolation from the start. – 9:40 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Some sharp sets in crunch time by the #Celtics, who will try to build on their 4-7 record in 1pt games in the final minute. Inside out from Tatum through Brown to White for 3. A good Tatum step back 3. Plus Tatum posting Krejci
Up 1pt last set, trying to attack Murray, too slow. – 9:35 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
BOGDAN with a 3 over Porzingis and Tatum. 109-108 ATL – 9:32 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Big shots by White and Tatum on a 6-0 answer. – 9:32 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Tatum started the 2nd half 0/4 FG and took one shot in the third. Just got a reverse layup to go through Murray’s foul to break that drought. – 9:22 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
#Celtics lead #Hawks 63-59 at halftime. Porzingis 17, Tatum 14, White 9, Brown 8; Murray 19, Bogdanovic 12, Capela 10 and 10 rebs. – 8:35 PM
Lauren L. Williams @WilliamsLaurenL
After Jayson Tatum tried to YAM on CC, and got stuffed… Clint Capela said something to him EMPHATICALLY – 8:33 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Tatum with a few choice words for official Dannica Mosher after that layup and foul. #Celtics #Hawks8:32 PM
Lauren L. Williams @WilliamsLaurenL
But b2b 3s from White & Tatum — Celtics up 4 – 8:29 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
jayson tatum can never complain about not getting star calls cause he just committed two offensive fouls in plain sight and it took a challenge to fix it – 8:23 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
#Hawks win the challenge. Foul on Tatum. #Celtics8:22 PM
Lauren L. Williams @WilliamsLaurenL
There’s a disagreement between Ed Malloy and Ray Acosta. Malloy who was on the baseline saw the elbow from Tatum to Krejci’s face and called it an offensive foul.
Acosta came in and called it a block.
Now Snyder has to challenge – 8:22 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Now Vit Krejci is called for a block on Tatum although it looked Tatum’s elbow struck him on the mouth. #Hawks challenging. #Celtics playing in mud so far tonight. – 8:21 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Wow. Another charge, this time on Tatum, reversed on the floor after an official’s conference and Hawks will challenge anyway. – 8:21 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Mazzulla is challenging this charge call on Jaylen Brown. Brown could have made it easier he just tossed an oop to a trailing Tatum. #Celtics #Hawks8:17 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
#Celtics lead #Hawks 29-28 after 1Q. BOS 1 for 11 on threes, 11 for 15 on twos. Porzingis 12, Brown 6, Tatum 2; Murray 10 Bogdanovic 6. – 8:05 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Nice transition catch and alley-oop by Tatum there. Embracing pace. – 8:01 PM
Lauren L. Williams @WilliamsLaurenL
5:04, 1Q — Vit Krejci picks up his second foul and sends Derrick White to the line for an and-1.
Otherwise Vit has been pretty solid with his assignment – 7:52 PM

Jrue Holiday has a steal two possessions into his return. Threw a long pass to Brown, who has 4pts in the first minute. – 7:41 PM

More on this storyline

Gary Washburn: Jrue Holiday WILL play tonight vs. #Hawks. #Celtics. -via Twitter @GwashburnGlobe / March 28, 2024
Kendrick Perkins: When you see a team that’s a veteran team like that, that has been inconsistent, that means there’s not a real voice in the locker room. And KD has the resume, he has the credentials to be that voice. And whether that be calling guys out or lifting guys up, in order for the Phoenix Suns to take that next step, he has to be uncomfortable. And I said this about him a month ago, the Phoenix Suns haven’t had a leader since Chris Paul left. That doesn’t mean a guy that’s not gonna go out there and produce numbers and do what he do, but an actual leader. That’s why they’re one of the worst fourth-quarter teams, if not the worst fourth-quarter team in the league. That comes with leadership. -via HoopsHype / March 30, 2024
Do you think Jalen Brunson is the best PG right now? How far do you think the Knicks can go this season? Kendrick Perkins: If the Knicks were healthy – that means having Julius Randle, OG Anunoby back in the lineup – the Knicks could actually go to the NBA Finals. They’re equipped to win now. They got great depth. Their defense is ferocious. They play with a tenacity like no other, led by Tom Thibodeau. But right now – and I call them the Villanova boys with the three-headed monster led by Jalen Brunson – I wouldn’t be surprised if they reached the Conference Finals if they could get to the No. 2 or 3 seed and prevent from seeing the Celtics in the second-round matchup. -via HoopsHype / March 30, 2024
Kendrick Perkins: I always say that Steph Curry is the best player on that team, but Draymond Green is the heart and soul of that team. Now, with that being said, there comes a time where it could be a bit excessive and that’s something that Draymond has to control. Because at this point, you’re not a young guy, you’re a veteran, you’re a multiple All-Star, NBA champion. So, you know better. Draymond is a very intelligent guy and he has the respect of the referees. So he’s allowed to get away with a little bit more and rightfully so. He’s earned that respect because he probably does have a relationship with the majority of the refs. But, he’s battle-tested enough – four-time NBA champion – you know, you can’t ask him to change. He is who he is and that’s not a bad thing. -via HoopsHype / March 30, 2024
Look, you gotta get to the point as a coach where you trust every single person that you have on the floor. If you go back and look at what Robert Horry did for so many teams. Kobe and Shaq, think about the big shot that Robert Horry hit against the Sacramento Kings. Role players have stepped up tremendously in the playoffs when it came down to winning games.  Derek Fisher, we saw the shot in the series against the San Antonio Spurs. I think it’s the trust factor that the coach has to have and the others along with your superstars or the franchise guys have trust in those players as well. -via HoopsHype / March 30, 2024
Kendrick Perkins: Well, we will see. I’ve been saying this all season long… nothing that the Celtics do in the regular season is going to impress me. Their season actually starts April 20. So, I have to see if Kristaps Porzingis is gonna be able to hold up health-wise. Is he gonna be able to play at a 20 and 10 status every single night? When he has to match up with a guy like Giannis [Antetokounmpo], is he gonna be able to hold his own because that’s gonna be key. And also, Jayson Tatum, him and Jaylen Brown, in close games, can they be those guys to close out those close games and be able to go toe-to-toe. That’s what it’s gonna be based on. -via HoopsHype / March 30, 2024
Tatum has struggled mightily in clutch situations this season. He is 5 for 18 shooting with the Celtics trailing or leading by 5 points or fewer in the last minute of games. He is 1 for 7 with the game within 3 points in the final 10 seconds. “I know I missed a couple this year,” he said. “It’s like damn, I [have to] be due for one. I had a bunch of them in my career so far. It’s part of it, make-or-miss league. But I really do enjoy being in those situations.” -via Boston Globe / March 30, 2024
