Jayson Tatum throws down thunderous dunk on Paul George


The Boston Celtics are struggling on offense this season, a curiosity given that the NBA as a whole has been a high-scoring group this year.

Still, Boston is a favorite in the Eastern Conference and at their showdown on Thursday night with the Oklahoma City Thunder pitted their young players against Russell Westbrook and Paul George.

Celtics star sophomore Jayson Tatum was on display at the end of the first quarter. While out on the break, Tatum threw down a thunderous dunk over George that rocked the rim and the crowd at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
