NBA Final: Dallas Mavericks Delay Celtics Title Celebration With Dominant Win

Boston Celtics hopes of landing an historic 18th NBA Championship title was delayed after they lost to a dominant Dallas Mavericks in Game 4 in the early hours of Saturday.

The Dallas Mavericks put on a show in a dominating win against the Boston Celtics in the fourth of the play-offs series as they triumphed 122-84.

The emphatic win at American Airlines Center saw Dončić putting up 29 points, five rebounds and five assists and Kyrie Irving contributing 21 points and 6 assists.

Celtics duo Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown were held to 15 and 10 points, respectively, their lowest totals of the series.

The Celtics still have a 3-1 advantage as the series heads back to Boston for Game 5 at TD Garden, where the team will aim to close the series and win its 18th NBA championship.

Dallas took the first step in what will be an steep, uphill battle against the Celtics — no NBA team has overcome a three-game deficit to win a playoff series.

Like when the Celtics lost to the Warriors in the 2022 NBA Finals, their experience has proven a significant edge against an opponent that mostly doesn’t have it, especially in the moments when it’s paramount to stay poised.

So, while Friday’s loss and the uncompetitive nature of the defeat were shocking, the plus side is that it will likely lead to a championship celebration at on Monday.
