The 24-year-old entered Wednesday night with the third-best odds to win the 2022-23 NBA MVP award. If he keeps up anything close to this pace, he could overtake Luke Doncic and Giannis Antetokounmpo to become the favorite sooner rather than later.

Tatum and the C's will look to duplicate the showing when they host the Heat again on Friday night.
