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

Luka Doncic has quickly emerged as one of the premier playmakers in NBA. His ability to control pace while producing clutch moments makes him indispensable to Dallas Mavericks’ offensive strategy; Doncic averaged 28.9 points and 8.4 assists per postseason game (playoff average 28.9); however his tendency for turnovers (4.1 average per game) could become an issue against Boston defense’s disciplined approach.

Jayson Tatum plays an invaluable role for the Celtics’ lineup, providing both scoring and defensive contribution. Averaging 25.2 points per game while pulling down over 10 rebounds each contest during this postseason. Tatum can stretch defenses with his shooting prowess or drive to the basket while contributing on defense with nearly one block and steal per contest; his contribution could prove pivotal against Doncic and Dallas in this series.

Both are known for rising to playoff pressure, making their matchup an essential factor. Their encounter could very well determine tempo and outcome as both try to exploit weaknesses while capitalizing on strengths; as this matchup showcases each individual player’s adaptability both offensively and defensively.

The Mavericks have been strong offensively throughout these playoffs, scoring an average of 106.1 points per game and shooting 46.7% from the field.
