Jayson Tatum shook off injury to get the better of Luka Doncic as the Boston Celtics blew out the Dallas Mavericks in a 125-112 victory. Doncic scored a game-high 42 points with eight rebounds and nine assists

Tatum, who had been listed as questionable with a sprained ankle, scored 37 points with 13 rebounds and five assists, while Jaylen Brown contributed 31 points on 13-of-18 field shooting.

Tatum and Doncic went head to head in the final quarter after the Mavs closed to 117-107. The Celtics forward first dunked, then made two free throws after being fouled by the Slovenian, before blocking Doncic’s driving lay-up.

Brown drained a three-point attempt after Marcus Smart’s assist and suddenly it was 124-107 and game over.
