Jayson Tatum took over Saturday in a Staff USA Olympic victory over the Czech Republic.
Kevin Durant thinks we’re going to peer much more of that.
Tatum has had a reasonably nondescript appearing within the exhibitions main as much as the Olympics in addition to in Tokyo itself. That ended in him dropping his beginning activity, however he bounced again in a large method Saturday with a 27-point appearing, with 15 issues coming off 3-pointers.
The entire whilst, Durant used to be breaking the Staff USA scoring file. That’s an excellent feat, however one he doesn’t imagine will final.
A daring prediction to make sure, however no doubt one that might come to move. Tatum best is 23, so he rather well would possibly have 3 — possibly 4 — extra Olympic appearances to his identify by the point he calls it a occupation.
Tatum, Durant and the remainder of Staff USA now will head to the knockout spherical.
