Celtics Beat Mavericks In Game 2 To Take 2-0 Lead In NBA Finals

Celtics Beat Mavericks In Game 2 To Take 2-0 Lead In NBA Finals

The Boston Celtics beat the Dallas Mavericks 105-98 in Game 2 to take a 2-0 lead in the NBA finals. Jrue Holiday led the scoring. Derrick White added a chase-down block.

Holiday had 26 points and 11 rebounds, and White sprinted down the court to swat away the Mavericks’ last chance on Sunday night.

Jayson Tatum got off a rough night with 12 assists and nine rebounds to go with his 18 points. 

Brown scored 21 with three steals, White had 18 points and three steals, and Payton Pritchard’s only basket of the game was a banked half-courter to beat the third-quarter buzzer and give Boston an 83-74 lead.

“That’s why they are the No. 1 team in the NBA with the No. 1 record,” said Mavericks star Luka Doncic, who scored 32 with 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

“They have a lot of great players. Basically, anybody can get off.”

Doncic, who was listed as questionable to play less than two hours before the opening tipoff, had his 10th career playoff triple-double.

“It’s not all on him. It’s a team,” Dallas coach Jason Kidd said of Doncic, who had been battling chest, knee and ankle injuries. 

“He put us in a position. He was really good tonight. Unfortunately, we just couldn’t get over the hump. We’ve got to find someone to join Luka and (Kyrie Irving) in that scoring category.”

Tatum was 6 for 22 shooting and 1 of 7 from 3-point range; the Celtics were 10 for 39 from long distance overall.

“I’m really tired of hearing about one guy or this guy or that guy and everybody trying to make it out to be anything other than Celtic basketball,” Boston coach Joe Mazzulla said. 

“Everybody that stepped on that court today made winning plays on both ends of the floor.”
