Game 2 Preview

The Boston Celtics return to TD Garden on Sunday night (Monday morning, Philippine Time) with a chance to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the 2024 NBA Finals against the Dallas Mavericks.

Their dominant performance in Game 1, a convincing 107-89 victory, has instilled confidence in the Celtics camp, but the Mavericks are determined to avoid falling into a deep early series hole.

The Mavericks undoubtedly face a daunting challenge after being thoroughly outplayed in Game 1. However, their resilience throughout the playoffs shouldn't be dismissed. This isn't the first time they've found themselves down 0-1 in a series.

Previously, they battled back from similar deficits against both the LA Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder, ultimately winning both series 4-2. Can they replicate that magic against the Boston Celtics?

While the pre-series narrative focused on the clash between superstar duos, Game 1 highlighted the importance of role players. The Celtics effectively neutralized Dallas' star power, particularly Kyrie Irving who was held to only 12 points. This emphasizes the crucial role complementary players will play in determining the eventual champion.

Despite facing a tough defensive matchup, Luka Doncic remained a constant threat for the Mavericks, finishing with a 30-point performance. However, Boston displayed their impressive depth, with six players reaching double-digit scoring. Kristaps Porziņģis' return from injury was a significant boost, contributing 20 points off the bench. Jrue Holiday's strong defensive performance further exemplified the Celtics' well-rounded effort.

The Celtics established dominance not only in scoring but also in their defensive intensity. They set a new NBA Finals record with seven players hitting at least two three-pointers, outscoring the Mavericks by a staggering 27 points from beyond the arc. Furthermore, their defensive strategy effectively stifled the Mavericks' offense, ultimately securing the blowout victory.

Game 2 promises to be an exciting battle. The Celtics have a clear opportunity to tighten their grip on the series, while the Mavericks are determined to rewrite the narrative and even the series score. Both teams will need to adjust their strategies and come out with renewed focus and determination to claim victory.
