CELTICS OVERPOWER MAVERICKS 105-98 IN GAME 2 OF NBA FINALS, LEAD 2-0




The Boston Celtics, with a 105-98 Game 2 win over the Mavericks Sunday, now possess a 2-0 NBA Finals lead as the series shifts cities. Dallas started the opening period much better than it did in Game 1, seizing a pivotal 28-25 lead. Luka Doncic led the way with 13 points on 5 of 7 shooting, but the Mavericks fell short on securing the easy points, going just 4 of 9 from the foul line.

Kristaps Porzingis once again led Boston off the bench, scoring eight points on 2 of 3 shooting with a block. Whereas Dallas couldn't convert free throws, Boston struggled from beyond the arc. The Celtics missed their first eight 3-point attempts before Al Horford's late make broke the streak. The second quarter tilted in Boston's favor, which led 54-51 at the half. Jrue Holiday took over as the Celtics' best scorer, posting 17 points on 7 of 9 shooting while Jayson Tatum struggled with five points on 2 of 10 shooting (0 of 3 from deep). Tatum did add eight assists.
