Sport Luka Doncic has interesting choice for best duo in NBA
Celtics manage massive Luka Doncic performance to beat Mavs 125-112
Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum scored 68 points to overpower Luka Doncic’s 42 in an offensive duel.“Know what you need to live with and know what you need to take away,” Joe Mazzulla said pre-game. “He can get it in a lot of different ways.
Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic is giving the ultimate compliment to one terrific twosome.
Doncic said before Wednesday’s game against the Boston Celtics that he believes Celtics stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are “probably” the best duo in the NBA.
“They’re probably the No. 1 team in the league, and they probably have the best duo in the league too,” he said of Boston,. “And we’re in the Garden. It’s always a special game. You have to come 100 percent. If you’re not, you’re probably going to lose. It’s a big game.”
Mavericks HC Jason Kidd reveals his concern about Luka Doncic
Doncic is the entire franchise right now for Dallas. He is having an MVP-caliber season with a massive 34.8 points (an NBA-high) to go along with 8.2 rebounds, 8.1 assists and 2.0 steals per game. Doncic has also made an effort of driving to the cup more often this year, resulting in a career-best 11.2 free-throw attempts per contest.But with the increased aggression inevitably comes increased wear and tear on Doncic’s body. Kidd, who played in the league for 19 seasons, knows that reality all too well.
There are certainly a lot of talented duos to choose from in today’s game. Joel Embiid and James Harden (Philadelphia), Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton (Milwaukee), Kawhi Leonard and Paul George (L.A. Clippers), and LeBron James and Anthony Davis (L.A. Lakers) are just a few.
But Tatum, 24, and Brown, 26, are right there with any of those tandems. They brought the Celtics to an NBA Finals berth last season and now have the team leading the league with a 13-4 record this season. Tatum’s volcanic scoring combined with Brown’s two-way carnage is a handful for any team to deal with on any given night. Given that they were facing breakup rumors less than a year ago, the two Jays are doing well for themselves.
