Jayson Tatum (SF) vs. Luka Doncic (PG)

Jayson Tatum has been consistent for the Celtics scoring an average of 25.3 points and 10.4 rebounds per game during the playoffs to Cousins who needed most of it for the Kings and Smits who needed it for the pacers. His scoring and his rebounds have been valuable on both ends of the floor. However, Tatum’s turnover rate is a meager 2.7 per game could be a worry against a defending Mavericks team.

On the other side of the ball, Luka Doncic has shown time in and time again why he is one of the most prized products in the NBA. With postseason averages of 28.8 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 8.4 assists per game, hence the youngster is a triple threat. His court vision as well as his ability to produce quality plays in high pressure situations will test the Celtics on defense.

This alone when these two stars cross paths, the game not only presents a dueling of talent but also, wills. The two players are adept at ‘kicking a team to victory’ or ‘chasing a team to victory’ as the case may be. Tatum registered some remarkable defensive statistics in the first two games and his defense will be up against Doncic’s creativity in offense, which implies that their one on one battle is one of the most eagerly watched part of Game 3.

In-Depth Team Analysis: Boston Celtics

The Celtics’ scoring ability this postseason, averaging 111.1 points per game with a 48% field goal percentage, reflects their balanced offensive strategy. Their three-point shooting, nearly 37% on about 40 attempts per game, is a critical component of their game plan. However, their even split in road game spreads (19-19) suggests some vulnerability away from home.

Mavericks’ Tactical Breakdown

The Mavericks, scoring at a slightly lower clip of 106.9 points per game on 46.8% shooting, rely heavily on their three-point game and Doncic’s playmaking. Their performance against the spread in road games (27-14) shows a strong ability to cover in unfamiliar territory, an advantage they will need to leverage in home games moving forward.
