NEW YORK (AP) - Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum scored his 10,000th career point in the second quarter of Saturday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets.
The 25-year-old Tatum is the youngest player in franchise history to score 10,000 points. The previous record holder was Antoine Walker, who was 26.
With 5:05 remaining in the quarter, Tatum drove into the lane, spun and converted the layup while drawing a foul on Brooklyn guard Cam Thomas. Thomas then knocked down the free throw to give Boston a 52-48 lead.
Tatum, drafted third overall in 2017, is averaging 29.8 points per game this season.
