CELTS COOK MAVS IN GAME 2, BUT PORZINGIS IS HURT AGAIN!

By Tommy Matthews

Luka Doncic lifted the Dallas Mavericks — a 32-point triple-double with 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

But it wasn’t enough as the Celtics went up 2 games to none with a 105-98 win.

Boston has balance and on a night the 3s didn’t fall — 10-of-39 (25.6%) — they got to the rim, made big defensive plays when they had to and had Jrue Holiday step up with a team-high 26 points, plus 11 boards. He carried the team for stretches, and the Celtics defense is always there.

This sums up the night: Doncic led all scorers, but the next four leading scorers in the game were all Celtics (Holiday, Jaylen Brown with 21, Jayson Tatum and Dereck White each with 18).

Boston now leads the NBA Finals 2-0 as the series heads to Boston.

The one big concern for the Celtics: Kristaps Porzingis left the game with 4:40 left in the game after having not moved well since returning in the fourth. If he re-injured his calf and misses games this series, it will change the vibe as he has been key for their spacing and rim protection.
