WASHINGTON (AP) This was quite a way for Jayson Tatum to break out of his shooting slump.

Tatum scored 51 points - 48 in the first three quarters - to help the Boston Celtics breeze to a 116-87 victory over the Washington Wizards on Sunday.

Tatum made nine 3-pointers and shot 18 of 28 from the field. That was after he shot 0 for 17 beyond the arc in his previous three games.
