Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum is in one of the worst outside shooting slumps of his career.

He's missed 20 consecutive 3-point shots. The C's forward is 3-of-29 on attempts from beyond the arc over the last five games, and he's shooting 24.3 percent on 3-pointers in 10 January games.

The Celtics lost another fourth-quarter lead Friday night in a 109-105 defeat to the Portland Trail Blazers at TD Garden.

Tatum played pretty well, scoring 27 points with 10 rebounds and seven assists. He was 0-of-6 from 3-point range, though, including a miss in the final 10 seconds.

What is Tatum's reaction to his shooting woes?

“Just find other ways to be effective on the court," Tatum said in his postgame press conference. "Don't stop shooting, but if something isn't working at the time, still find a way to impact the game."

He later added: "Throughout the course of the season there are times I watch film and see some things I could adjust," Tatum said. "Over the course of 82 games, sometimes you just miss, but you put in too much work to doubt yourself. There's always the next game."
