Mavericks vs. Celtics final score, results: Celtics overcome Luka Doncic's triple-double to take 2-0 Finals lead

In most games, Jrue Holiday isn't the top scorer because he's better known for his defence. But on Sunday, he led the Celtics to a big win in Game 2. 

Boston defeated Dallas 105-98 to grab a 2-0 series lead as the veteran guard scored 26 points on 11-of-14 shooting. Jaylen Brown, Derrick White, and Jayson Tatum scored 21, 18, and 18 points. 

After overcoming a chest injury, Luka Doncic scored 23 first-half points. He had 32 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, and four steals, but his eight mistakes showed Boston's smothering defence all night.  

Kyrie Irving hit 7-of-18 from the field, and the Mavericks made 16-of-24 free throws and 6-of-26 from long. Dallas will host Games 3 and 4 with the Mavericks desperate for a win.
