Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics made history during the 2023 NBA All-Star Game by breaking Anthony Davis' scoring record with 55 points.

Tatum had an impressive 22-of-31 shooting performance which led Team Giannis to a 184-175 victory over Team LeBron.

His 55-point performance also earned him the All-Star Game MVP, making him the first Celtics player to win the award since Larry Bird in 1982.

Tatum's third-quarter performance was especially noteworthy, as he scored nearly half of his points during that period.

Tatum's impressive performance came in response to the indifferent defense often seen in the All-Star Game, showing his determination to succeed.

In the first quarter, LeBron James threw an alley-oop to himself off the backboard, and Tatum responded with an equally impressive move.

This record-breaking performance adds to Tatum's already impressive season, where he is averaging 30.6 points and shooting 46.4% from the floor.

Additionally, Tatum's new signature sneaker was unveiled during the All-Star Weekend, providing an excellent advertisement for Nike and Jordan Brand.
