The Larry O’Brien once again belongs to Beantown!

Boston Celtics superstar Jayson Tatum was absolute lights out Monday night, nearly recording a triple-double with a stat line of 31 points, 11 assists and 8 rebounds. His counterpart, NBA Finals MVP Jaylen Brown, had flashy numbers himself — 21 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists.

The dominant performances from both Tatum and Brown led the Celtics to a 106-88 thrashing of a victory in Game 5, which also clinched the record-breaking 18th NBA championship for the C’s. And to make it even sweeter, the dub came on the 16th anniversary of the team winning their 17th title, which also happened in TD Garden.
