The NBA Finals began with the Boston Celtics crushing the Dallas Mavericks in Game 1. A sizzling 23-5 run at the end of the first quarter set the tone, and despite a spirited comeback led by Luka Doncic, Boston's stifling defense held firm. With Jaylen Brown's 22 points and Kristaps Porzingis shining in his return, the Celtics' dominance was clear. In the end, Boston beat Dallas at 107-89.

Boston beat the Mavericks in Game 2 with an advantage by the second quarter. They continued a huge lead at the end of the third with a legendary downtown toss by 3-pointer by backup point guard Payton Pritchard right before the buzzer went off. Game 2 completed with Boston winning yet again with 105-98 and are now 2-0 for the series.
