NBA Finals MVP Odds See Dramatic Shift After Boston Wins Game 1
By Max Staley
The Boston Celtics stunned the Golden State Warriors in Game 1, riding a 40-16 fourth quarter to complete a wild comeback. Perhaps the most surprising element of Boston's electric run was the fact that Jayson Tatum didn't look like Jayson Tatum. Though he contributed as a playmaker (13 assists), Tatum couldn't buy a bucket, shooting 3-of-17 and scoring just 12 points.
Despite an uncharacteristically shaky scoring performance, Tatum is now favored to win the NBA Finals MVP, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
