Tatum’s performance included eight rebounds and five assists, a significant improvement on his 10-point performance in the Celtics’ loss on Saturday.

“I think I do a really good job of sleeping it off regardless if I had 10 points or 46 points. I’m a big believer that you can’t change what happened. I didn’t doubt myself.”

The fifth game of the series is scheduled for Wednesday in Miami.
