Luka Doncic wasn’t going to let the Celtics get back into it on Tuesday night.
The Mavericks star, thanks to a pair of wild, contested 3-point baskets in the final seconds, secured the 110-107 win over Boston at the American Airlines Center.
Luka buries back-to-back contested 3s
Doncic, with the Mavericks down by one with just 15 seconds left, buried a deep step-back 3-pointer over Boston center Daniel Theis.
Then, after Jaylen Brown tied things back up with a layup on the other end, Doncic struck again.
After dribbling the ball up the court, Doncic rose up and expertly sank the 3-pointer between a pair of Celtics to give Dallas the lead — and eventual win.
Doncic finished the night with 31 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists while shooting 6-of-8 from behind the arc. Jalen Brunson added 22 points for Dallas off the bench, and Josh Richardson dropped 16 points.
Brown led Boston with 29 points and seven rebounds, and Jason Tatum finished with 28 points.
