NBA Finals - US Sports: Tatum vows to step up in Game 5

Jayson Tatum promises better in Game 5

Jayson Tatum has shouldered the responsibility for Boston's Game 4 defeat to Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals series but is confident he will put in a better performance in Game 5 at the Chase Center on Monday.

Boston can be backed at 2.45 to win Game 5 in the Money Line and Tatum is 4.75 to be the Finals MVP.

Chance blown

The Celtics looked on course to take a 3-1 series lead for much of the fourth meeting with Golden State Warriors but the Dubs pulled clear in the fourth quarter, outscoring Boston 17-3 in the final stages to claim a 107-97 win.

Tatum finished the game with 23 points but he scored just seven of those in the second half and shot 8-for-23 from the field.

Better to come

"I mean, I give them credit, they're a great team. They're playing well. They got a game plan, things like that," Tatum told reporters, via ASAP Sports. "But it's on me. I got to be better. I know I'm impacting the game in other ways, but I got to be more efficient, shoot the ball better, finish at the rim better.

"I take accountability for that. I just look forward to Monday. Leave this one behind us. Learn from it, watch the film, things like that, but everybody probably feels like they got to be better, myself included. Just go get it on Monday."
