Kawhi Leonard Jayson Tatum

Jayson Tatum explained how the playing style of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George helped him improve his game this season.

The forward of the Boston Celtics was having a breakout year prior to the NBA suspension, averaging 23.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.4 steals, and 0.9 blocks — all career bests.

“I knew that I would have a much larger role this season, handling the ball in pick-and-roll much more often. So I watched a lot of clips of Kawhi (Leonard), Paul George in pick-and-roll situations. Just developing that patience and that takes time,” Tatum told Jared Weiss of The Athletic.
