Boston Celtics dominate Game 1 with 3-pointers and Porzingis' return. Can they repeat against Dallas Mavericks in Game 2? #NBAFinals

The Boston Celtics made a statement in Game 1 of the NBA Finals with a barrage of 3-pointers and a stellar performance from Kristaps Porzingis. They now aim to replicate their success in Game 2 against the Dallas Mavericks.

In their previous game, the Celtics dominated beyond the arc, outscoring the Mavericks by 27 points in a 107-89 victory. Despite Luka Doncic's impressive 30-point performance, Porzingis' impact on both ends of the court stole the show.

While the odds favor the Celtics to take a 2-0 series lead, the Mavericks have shown resilience by winning Game 2 in all three of their previous series. With Jaylen Brown in top form, my predictions and picks for the Mavs vs. Celtics matchup will highlight his key role in the game.

Brown's versatility was on full display in Game 1, leading the Celtics with 22 points while contributing in rebounds, steals, blocks, and assists. His defensive efforts against Doncic were crucial to the team's success.

I anticipate another standout performance from Brown in Game 2, particularly in scoring. With his points prop set at 22.5, I believe he will surpass this mark given his recent scoring streak and ability to draw fouls.

Despite Jayson Tatum leading the Celtics in points per game this postseason, his efficiency has dipped compared to the regular season. However, his contributions in rebounds and assists have been notable, making him a key player to watch in Game 2.

Tatum's points + rebounds prop line is set at 14.5, a mark he has consistently exceeded in previous playoff games. With his minutes likely to remain high, Tatum's impact on both ends of the court will be crucial for the Celtics' success in Game 2.
