Celtics’ Jayson Tatum vs. Mavs’ Luka Doncic: Highlights from their duel at TD Garden (11/23)

It was perhaps the most intense duel of the season as two leading candidates for the 2023 Kia Most Valuable Player award faced off in TD Garden on Wednesday night. Superstar Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum and star Dallas Mavericks wing Luka Doncic went at it with gusto in what would turn out to be a 125-112 win for the Celtics, the two NBA luminaries putting up a combined total of 79 points.

And while Doncic might have won the individual game with his 42 points, 8 rebounds, and 9 assists, Tatum helped his team to the win with 37 points, 13 boards, and 5 assists as he and his Boston teammates used the Wilt Chamberlain treatment to isolate the Mavs star’s ability to get his teammates going.

The folks at the NBA YouTube channel put together this highlight clip of the two dueling in the Celtics’ home win.

Take a look at the video embedded above to see it in full.
