It was very hard. Boston crushed Dallas in the first game, Porzingis is incredible!

Celtics fans seem to have managed to put pressure on Kyrie Irving, and Luka Doncic is not a solo warrior on the field.

In Boston, at the TD Garden stadium, the first game of the final series of the 2024 NBA playoffs ended, where the local Celtics received the guests from Texas, the Dallas Mavericks. Rapper Drake, who bet $500,000 on Dallas’ victory, is probably worried: the Mavericks lost 89:107. Luka Doncic shined the most for the Rogues; he scored 30 points and 10 rebounds. It is true that it was unusual that the Slovenian gave only one assist when the entire team had a total of nine.

Kyrie Irving, who was booed at every opportunity by Celtics fans for obvious reasons, managed just 12 points on 6-of-19 shooting: 31.6 percent. Additionally, Irving also recorded three rebounds, two assists and two steals with three turnovers.

The start of the match, you could say, was even. At least the first 5 minutes 22 seconds. Then, with a score of 15:14 in favor of the guests, the Celts organized a crazy advance of 44:16, which, in fact, decided the result of the match. At the big break, the difference on the scoreboard was “+21” – 63:42. However, it got to the point where Boston was 29 points ahead of the opponent.

In the third quarter it seemed that Dallas was about to catch up with its rival, organizing a 29:9 lead. Without a doubt a good bet to regain the intrigue. Luka Doncic, who scored 15 points during this period, hit a 3-pointer four and a half minutes before the end of the quarter, forcing Joe Mazzulla to call a timeout.

Yes, the Mavericks reduced the difference to eight points and the comeback seemed imminent. However, Mazzulla’s specific decisions corrected the situation and the Celtics regained their 20-point lead at the end of twelve minutes. The image remained practically unchanged until the final siren: “+18” and the score was 107:89. A sure victory for Boston, which now leads the series 1-0.

“He was great on both ends of the court. It was KP who helped us get to where we are today,” Boston head coach Joe Mazzulla noted about Porzingis’ performance. Absolute truth. The Latvian basketball player did not appear on the court for 38 days. During the first quarter, Porzingis, coming off the bench, immediately scored 11 points, the same number of points as Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving in total.

In the end, Kristaps finished the game with 20 points, six rebounds and three blocked shots, becoming the second basketball player in the last 50 years with more than 20 points in 21 minutes (or less) on the court. Previously, León Pou achieved it in the 2008 final, and also as a Celtics player, which is notable. Overall, Porzi returned to action in impressive fashion and helped the hosts start the series healthy.

It would be strange not to talk about Jaylen Brown, the MVP of the Eastern Conference finals, who became the Celts’ most productive player: 22 points, six rebounds, three steals, the same number of blocks and two assists. Additionally, Brown became the first player since 2003 – since Tim Duncan – to have at least three interceptions and three blocked throws at the start of the final series. And Jaylen did it in three quarters!
