2024 NBA Playoffs Day 41 Recap: Boston creates separation from Dallas

The Boston Celtics continued to frustrate the Dallas Mavericks and stifled them once again to pull through in Game 2 and create a 2-0 lead of the 2024 NBA Finals on Day 41 of the 2024 NBA Playoffs on Sunday night.

The Mavericks had a better start in this game with Luka Doncic scoring 23 in the first quarter however he could not sustain it as the Celtics did a much better job of tiring him out and hunting him on defense in the second half.

The game was close in the first quarter and second quarter with both teams trading baskets, however Boston pulled away in the 4th with timely baskets and big stops all over the place.

But perhaps there was no bigger stop than Derrick White’s block on PJ Washington’s breakaway dunk attempt with just under two minutes to go that effectively sealed the win for Boston.

Jaylen Brown put on the finishing touches on the other end by scoring on a left handed layup after blowing past by Washington and finishing over the outstretched arms of Maxi Kleber.

Some takeaways from this game include:

  • Dallas making Jayson Tatum a playmaker and responding beautifully, dishing out a game-high 12 assists
  • NBA Champion Jrue Holiday. Making the right plays as always
  • Luka Doncic continues doing Luka Magic things. A 30-point triple-double in just his second-ever Finals game. On an insane trajectory

Game 3 of the 2024 NBA Finals continues on Thursday night as the series shifts over to Dallas.
