Luka Doncic says Celtics best team in the NBA, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown the best duo

03

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
This game has just been Tatum and Doncic going iso for 10 minutes straight – 7:54 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Luka Doncic, who entered the game with an already absurd 38 percent usage rate, is up to 10 points and an assist (on the only other made field goal Dallas has) so far in this game. – 7:54 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Don’t faint. Mavs put together back-to-back defensive stops. And then Tatum tips in his own miss. – 7:54 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Derrick White told me this morning a lot of what the #Celtics have seen on film from themselves defensively comes down to individual efforts. Luka is going at everyone one on one right now. Smart got a stop on a jumper that JUST rimmed out. Already 10 PTS and an AST for Luka. – 7:54 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Tatum is in the roamer role tonight. He’s “guarding” Dwight Powell, but mostly looking to help where he can. – 7:54 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Great move and finish by Tatum. Came up limping a bit though. – 7:52 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Tatum came up limping a bit. – 7:51 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Tatum earns an early pair of trips to the FT line while Luka gets going with 3 straight jump shots. Fun one early at the Garden. – 7:51 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
The Tatum-Doncic matchup is fun. – 7:47 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
As Joe Mazzulla said a few weeks ago, the Grant Williams starting lineup was only for a string of matchups. Derrick White is back with the starters alongside Smart, Tatum, Brown and Horford. – 7:45 PM
Mark Followill @MFollowill
Luka does everything including letting us know during the broadcast open that our monitor went out for a few seconds. 🤣🤣🤣🏀📺 pic.twitter.com/vA3PAyjuno7:42 PM

Which is more interesting: Watching Doncic come out for warmups? Or watching everyone watching Doncic come out for warmups? pic.twitter.com/6dRCF5UF5k6:42 PM

Luka making sure the threads are sharp before beginning workouts. pic.twitter.com/1SaP3963bA6:41 PM

Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Kidd on Luka’s defense: “Huge step. Luka can play both sides of the ball … what he understands is the opponent is going to bring him up in the pick and roll or put him in the post … he can do both .. we need him … we’re gonna cover each other, but now he’s participating.” – 6:05 PM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
Mazzulla on Jaylen Brown’s offensive approach: “I think there’s a time and a place for (mid-rangers). I think our shot quality is really, really good.”
Says when you pass up the first open three, that’s when turnovers often happen around the rim. – 5:51 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
My plan for the Celtics tonight?
Be up by more than 1 or 2 points before Dallas’ last possession. Otherwise, it’ll be Luka magic time. We’ve seen that story before. – 5:51 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Jayson Tatum WILL play tonight. #Celtics5:48 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Jayson Tatum (ankle) will play tonight vs. Mavericks. – 5:48 PM

John Karalis @John_Karalis
Jayson Tatum is in tonight with no minutes restriction – 5:48 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps

Jay King @ByJayKing
Jayson Tatum will play tonight, per Joe Mazzulla. No minutes restrictions. – 5:48 PM

Joe Mazzulla on Luka: “Know what you need to live with and know what you need to take away … he can (score) in a lot of different ways.” – 5:47 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
New ESPN story: Ahead of tonight’s showdown with the Celtics here in Boston on @espn, Luka Doncic had high praise for his opponents, saying Boston is the best team in the league and Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are its best duo. espn.com/nba/story/_/id…2:54 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
Looking ahead to tonight’s matchup vs. the Mavs, and why I think it can be a big Jaylen Brown game, regardless of whether Jayson Tatum plays:

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
The Celtics have ruled JD Davison out for tonight’s game vs Dallas due to a sprained right ankle.
No update on Jayson Tatum yet. Tatum is questionable due to a sprained left ankle. – 12:29 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Doncic when asked if he gets up more for games like tonight: “They’re probably the No. 1 team in the league and they probably have the best duo (Tatum and Brown) in the league, too. And we’re in the Garden, so it’s always special.”
Why does he think Tatum/Brown best duo? pic.twitter.com/qv0Px72HAf12:19 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Doncic was asked after shootaround today which team he’s picking/rooting for in World Cup: “Serbia, since Slovenia isn t playing.” With Germany and Argentina losing, Doncic was asked whether Kleber or Campazzo is taking their loss harder. “Facu because he is a huge fan.” – 12:04 PM
Matt Williams @StatsWilliams
Luka Doncic is averaging 11.7 points in the 1st quarter this season.
That is on pace to be the most by any player in any quarter in a season over the last 25 years. – 11:38 AM
Henry Abbott @TrueHoop
10/27: Durant dunks to tie the game, leaving Luka and the Mavericks 8 seconds to win it. Was it a tactical error not to hold for the last shot? @David Thorpe and I bickered, then called in @SethPartnow to referee, which @jshector made a podcast out of. https://t.co/Daw0DmWvel pic.twitter.com/UoPtrb7akb11:17 AM

Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2
Bogdanovic, doing his best Sheed impression, just picked up his 5th tech of the season.
He’s tied for third in the league this season with Luka Doncic. Kevin Durant has 7 and Draymond Green has 6. – 9:58 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
It wasn’t the best Celtics game yesterday, but this one-handed offensive rebound into an assist in one motion from Jayson Tatum to Marcus Smart was pretty awesome. pic.twitter.com/KB1urP1nWK9:48 PM

Adam Himmelsbach @AdamHimmelsbach
Jayson Tatum told me he tries to embrace his growing celebrity status but is conscious of how it affects 4-year-old Deuce.

#Mavericks‘ Spencer Dinwiddie (shoulder) is questionable and Maxi Kleber (back) is doubtful.
#Celtics could be without Jayson Tatum (left ankle sprain), who’s questionable. – 4:43 PM

Jayson Tatum is QUESTIONABLE tomorrow night against the Mavs with a left ankle sprain, team announces – 4:43 PM

Jayson Tatum is questionable for tomorrow’s game vs Dallas due to a sprained left ankle. – 4:43 PM

Jaylen Brown heat check. Check. – 8:56 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
That three-point play by Jaylen Brown feels big, because Chicago was starting to pull away. – 8:48 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
Scal says that Brown turnover wasn’t his fault and he is right. Getting rid of what Grande just called “the Jaylen Brown turnover” is all about the right spacing and giving him an outlet. Wrote about that earlier today:

Jaylen Brown said his Sunday tweet meant to support Kyrie Irving, not the demonstrator’s beliefs outside of Barclays Center, who wore shirts indicating they belong to the hate group “Israel United in Christ” https://t.co/U8ZpTaejGr pic.twitter.com/X32gUNNDrq5:55 PM

Jaylen Brown @FCHWPO
I was not aware of what specific group that was outside of Barclay’s Center tonight. I was celebrating the unification of our people welcoming the return of Kyrie to the court, first glance I thought it was a known fraternity the (C/Que’s) Omega psi phi (step’n) showing support – 9:15 PM

More on this storyline

The Georgia native retweeted a clip on Sunday afternoon which was originally shared by Twitter user @PlainJaneDee_ that showed a large crowd of Black Hebrew Israelites, a number of which were distributing propaganda flyers for the Radical Hebrew Israelite sect, who are characterized as a hate group by the SPLC. -via Celtics Wire / November 21, 2022
John Karalis: Jayson Tatum is listed as questionable for tomorrow with the left ankle sprain that he suffered in last night’s game. -via Twitter @John_Karalis / November 22, 2022
Doncic said another reason for his high praise of Boston is that the Celtics have managed to post the NBA’s best record with center Robert Williams III missing the entire season so far following September knee surgery. “They have one of the best records and they’re missing I think a key guy, Williams III,” Doncic said. “I am impressed by his game, have always liked his game. So with him being out, and them having this record, that’s why I said that.” -via ESPN / November 23, 2022
Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic beat Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson to the 50 triple-double milestone by a game. Doncic’s 33-point, 12-rebound, 11-assist performance in Friday’s 127-99 win over the visiting Denver Nuggets made him the 10th player in NBA history to record 50 career triple-doubles. Doncic accomplished the feat in his 278th career game, one fewer than it took Johnson. Only Oscar Robertson (111) needed fewer games to get 50 triple-doubles. -via ESPN / November 19, 2022
