With Mookie Betts off to Los Angeles, the Boston sports scene is missing a professional athlete who moonlights as an elite bowler.
Might another young superstar fill that void?
A few Boston Celtics players blew off steam Thursday following their seeding-round finale with a trip to a bowling alley in Orlando’s NBA bubble. Naturally, they kept score — and Jayson Tatum spared no one.
Here’s the final tally, per Tatum’s Snapchat:
It’s no perfect 300, but 180 still is a strikingly good score for the 22-year-old All-Star, who left his teammates in the dust with a “turkey” in his final frame.
Here are some highlights from the session from Enes Kanter’s Twitter, which include Tacko Fall’s solid form, Jaylen Brown chucking a decent ball and Javonte Green “misfiring,” to put it lightly:

Maybe Kanter should have focused less on filming and more on bowling, though: The C’s big man finished dead last with a 71.
The Celtics are off until Monday, where they’ll roll into a first-round playoff matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers having gone 5-3 in eight seeding games.
