Tatum, Brown combine to beat ‘Donovan Duo’ — Boston blows out 18-point lead in Game 1 of championship series, ‘knocks out the Steamers’

The one-two punch ended rather sourly. The Boston Celtics’ one-two punch, seeking their 18th championship, dominated the Dallas Mavericks’ “Donovan Duo” and opened the door to a best-of-seven National Basketball Association (NBA) championship series.

Boston cruised to a 107-89 victory over Dallas in Game 1 of the 2023-2024 NBA Championship on Sunday at TD Garden in Boston, 온라인카지노 Massachusetts, USA. The teams will play Game 2 on Tuesday at the same venue.

The Celtics, who are tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for the most championships with 17, are hoping to become the first team to win 18. The Celtics haven’t won a title since the 2007-2008 season, when they were led by the “Big Three” of Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett. The Celtics reached the championship game in 2009-2010 and 2021-2022, but finished as runners-up to the Lakers and Golden State Warriors, respectively.

Boston came out with a ton of firepower in the first quarter and overwhelmed Dallas. They led 37-20 at the end of the first quarter and continued the scoring in the second quarter, making it a one-sided affair with a 63-35, 28-point lead at the end of the second quarter. Boston’s lead continued to grow from there, and they maintained their lead until the end of the game to secure the victory.

The Celtics were led offensively by Jaylen Brown with 22 points and Jayson Tatum (16 points, 11 rebounds), while Kristaps Porzingis, who returned from injury, chipped in with 20 points.

Meanwhile, Dallas’ vaunted “one-two punch” of Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving struggled mightily. Irving was held to 12 points, while Doncic, despite posting a 30-point, 10-rebound double-double, had just one assist and made just four of his 12 three-point attempts.
